The character Puss in Boots has been one of the few redeeming aspects of the Shrek franchise and so DreamWorks Animation is making sure to drive him into the ground. With only two DWA films set for release this year instead of the usual three (how will they ever feed their children!), Puss in Boots is the holiday tentpole for the studio while Kung Fu Panda 2 is aiming for the summer crowd.
The studio has now released a teaser trailer and poster for Puss in Boots and they have me struggling to remember why I liked the character in the first place. Basically, the teaser says “It’s Zorro, but he’s a sassy kitty cat. Give us your money.” Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Puss in Boots features the voices of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, and Zach Galifianakis. It opens in 3D on November 4th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Puss in Boots:
“Puss in Boots – One of the most beloved characters of the Shrek Universe – tells the hilarious and courageous (daring, bold, brave) tale of Puss’ (Antonio Banderas) early adventures as he teams with mastermind Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) and the street-savvy Kitty (Salma Hayek) to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs.”
