Antonio Banderas gets his own Shrek spin-off in the Puss in Boots teaser trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I’m normally not a fan of spin-offs, either in movies or TV shows, but I think if there ever was an animated character that could carry his own movie and is worthy of a spin-off, it’s Puss in Boots. He was pretty much the only redeeming quality in the last few Shrek movies and if they play their cards right, they could recapture some of that Shrek magic in PUSS IN BOOTS. The trailer is just a little tease, but I like the humor they’re going for (loved the female cat meowing when he threw his hat) and I’m at least intrigued by the film. I guess at the end of the day, that’s all a teaser trailer is really supposed to do.
The film features the voice work of Antonio Banderas and no word yet on whether or not the rest of the Shrek gang will show up for a cameo appearance, but we do know that Salma Hayek will voice a character. I can’t imagine Mike Meyers, Eddie Murphy or Cameron Diaz would pass up an easy paycheck.
