DreamWorks Animation has released a new five-minute clip from Puss in Boots. I love the intro because watching Antonio Banderas try to dance while talking to a fake digital cat is hilarious. As for the clip, it shows off the strong start to the movie where it’s balancing humor and action, plus it shows off the terrific animation and fantastic score. While I’ll have my full review up on Friday, people should know that Puss in Boots drops most of the comedy after the first act and becomes a straight-up adventure movie. This extended clip shows a good part of the movie, but only the animation and score stay strong throughout the film.
Hit the jump to check out the clip. Puss in Boots opens in 3D this Friday.

Here’s the official synopsis for Puss in Boots:
Way before Puss ever met Shrek, our suave and furry feline hero goes on a swashbuckling ride, as he teams with mastermind Humpty Dumpty and the street-savvy Kitty to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs.
