“Puss In Boots” teaser

  • doop

    It’s like they replaced Megamind from his trailer with Puss in Boots.

  • Nadav

    The best way they could think of for advertising this movie is by Puss to give a stripshow!?

    That’s a new low for fan service…

  • Al

    Anyone else notice they were channeling “Inception” with the music at the beginning?

  • Metallicfire

    That shot at 0.49 breaks my mind…

  • This is great! I can’t wait to see a sincere, respectfully done animated feature version of the classic, beloved fairy tale “Puss in Boots”!

    • 2011 Adult

      Have you SEEN the last 3 Shrek films?! They’re being true to the character, not the fairy tale.

      • Wowwww.

        You, sir/madam, are an idiot.

        I’ll give you a hint – MY post contains no sarcasm.

      • 2011 Adult

        Excuse me?


        How is that description relevant to whatever the trailer shows? For one thing, Puss in Boots is a FRENCH story.

      • Wowwww.: You, sir/madam, are a fairly intelligent individual;)

      • Wowwww.

        Sorry 2011 Adult, maybe my hint wasn’t clear enough. The description ISN’T relevant. That’s the point Mesterius was making.

        I’m scared that 2 people “like” your comment.

        I would love to see how the three of you handle daily life without understanding sarcasm.

      • Lily

        Hmmm… I don’t understand why Cartoon Brew censor some people’s comments/ threaten about deleting comments, and sometimes don’t about attacking each other. What’s going on here? :(

      • I’m as puzzled as you are… It’s pretty difficult to see the reasoning behind what is censored and what isn’t.

      • Krakatoe-a

        Its usually the people who disagree with them. Because opinion is a science!

      • Ethan

        I disagree. I think the moderators are guardian angels. When I say something really foot-in-mouth, my post disappears instantly.

  • Mad Hatter

    I have very mixed feelings about this

  • Toonio

    The strip club music shows for Dreamworks unwillingness to drop the innuendos and pop culture references in their movies.

    • Stodoe

      I would never say they have an unwillingness to drop the inuendos and pop culture. They just have started to choose which movies to have them in and which won’t. Dragons didn’t have them, but Puss and Boots might because it’s a spin off of Shrek.
      It’d be silly to just assume Puss and Boots is a totally original character that has no link to his previous films.
      Dreamworks has been doing this well. They understand some films will be for the masses that like the pop culture and some are allowed to be more original. I think they are being smart by playing to different crowds.

  • Clint

    Way to spoil my morning…with MORE Dreamworks ‘tude! Aaargh!

    Actually, this just looks OK. As long as they didn’t play “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred, it’s all good.

  • Maybe this is just the teaser and the story uses another kind of comedy, but I’m not really a fan of this kind of Dreamworks humor. They can do better like they show in Kung Fu Panda. And Puss is a nice character but I’m not sure if I want to see more of him, there have already been more Shrek sequels than necessary. I do admit Puss was one of the few characters that made me laugh in those movies, together with Donkey and Gingerbread Man.

    Megamind and Monsters Vs Aliens were in a middle section, they used pop culture references but not as frequently as the Shrek movies.

  • Warhead


    • The best comment right there.

  • Skip

    Would have looked foreword to seeing this had it come out after Shrek 2, but Shrek 3 used up any interest that I may have had with the Shrek universe. Kung-Fu Panda 2 on the other hand is one that I can’t wait to see.

  • mike

    Uhhhhh so do i have to register for a certain list after watching that? I feel way more dirty than i should
    “he’s been a bad kitty.” Indeed.

  • Claudia

    You know Dreamworks has reached a new level of low when they use a song from Pitbull for they trailers.

    I mean c’mon guys, put some effort.

  • Larry

    I find it baffling that they chose the exact same format as the Megamind teaser — main character strutting towards camera while a pop song that describes his attitude plays. Especially after MegaMind disappointed at the box office.

    Honestly, I’ve loved the new direction Dreamworks has taken in recent years (Dragon, Panda), but this seems like two steps back.

    • Of which all of it is sort of derivative of the Alien singing “I Will Survive”, right?

  • Tom


  • Silence Dogood

    Huh, well. I want to see a different trailer.
    The story of Puss In Boots origin is fun and the Shrek Character is fun as well. Hopefully the whole movie won’t be like this…

  • TURDtoon

    I groaned as soon as the music came on.

  • How can they fall so low after HTTYD and Kung Fu Panda? I just don’t get it.

    • Ethan

      …the same way Disney can make both Santa Buddies and Tangled. A studio is not a person. I think the concept of “they” as a single entity is wrong.

      • Krakatoe-a

        I love all the comments on this page that kind of push back the “This is worse than the Holocaust” mentality.

  • 2011 Adult

    Age ghetto? WHAT age ghetto?!

  • Ethan

    This is clearly squeeeee territory.

  • Alan

    Looks better than that juvenile ran go cartoon–but that’s not saying much.

  • Alan

    that’s rango. Curse auto spell!

  • Funkybat

    A lot of complaints about the “Dreamworks ‘tude” which I suppose is to be expected. I expected nothing less for this spinoff. Look, “Puss In Boots” is basically a continuation of the “Fractured Fairy Tales” universe created in Shrek. The tone of humor for the characters in that universe is well established. It would probably be a bad move to radically change it, otherwise Puss’ attitude and actions in the Shrek movies would not fit with who we see here.

    I’m glad to see some improvement on the “human” models, I always felt the regular stock humans in the Shrek universe were rather stiff and mechanical. Dreamworks should continue to move away from their old habits in their newer properties, such as Dragon and Kung Fu Panda. But if they are revisiting the worlds of Shrek or Madagascar, there’s no reason to expect them to radically change things. I’m more excited about “Puss” than I was about Shrek 4, but part of me will be glad when that whole era of DW’s history can be put to a close. They are growing beyond their roots, and I would hate to see that growth stunted.

  • chipper

    Why did they say he’s been a bad kitty? He helped the kids get candy. I thought that was nice…

    • I think most dentists would agree what he did was bad. Very bad.

  • Michel Van

    after they milked Shrek dry
    they take the Puss in Boots
    we had 4 “Fractured Fairy Tales” movies
    will a 5 one make it better ?
    i fear not…

    • Tim Douglas

      Of course it will!

      And I guarantee that Hi Ho Donkey will be hilarious, and Pinocchi-oh no!, could be a surprise hit.

      I’m not sure about Fiona’s movie but the trailer was pretty cool.
      *hums*Sisters are doing it for themselves…*hums*

      • Krakatoe-a

        You are all far older than the movie’s core audience. These aren’t gifts from your spouses meant just for you. These are movies marketed at children. Who probably dig them quite a bit.

      • Yeah, I’m sure the kiddies all get a kick about all the blowjob and sex innuendo that plague Pitbull’s lyrics.

  • Paolo

    complaints aside, the two female cats purring at him, especially the one closer to the camera, are awesome. I love the subtle animation and the arch her head follows.
    Why are they not humanoid though? hahahaha

  • Paolo

    although it feels a bit like an old spice commercial with an inception twist at the beginning.

  • Ryoku75

    The ‘tude is just typical Dreamworks, goes with their animated features like butter and bread.

  • Gerard de Souza

    This was the character that always stole the show. ABout time he had his own film. Did not see any SHrek sequels after II. I would see this.

  • Chelsea

    I wonder how many lives this one will have

  • tonma

    They’ve made 3 movies with this guy in them (3 or 4 I’m not really counting) and for this piece of publicity they just show off his same old traits… nothing more.

    I wish they gave a little hint of what would be new to expect in this film: a new character, a situation or something. Instead they give away nothing but the fact the movie is being made, which everybody knew already. It’s the damn cat again and well, that’s it.

    …I know sometimes that’s the point of a teaser, but in this case it left me completely confused…

  • Mad dog

    I’m actually very curious about this film. Sure I think Dreamworks kinda wait a little LATE to make a movie centered around Puss.

    I’m curious how cost are they going to follow the original fairy tale. Puss is an interesting character hopeful he gets gets a cool origin story or something?

  • Andrew Kieswetter

    I really liked Puss in the Shrek movies. This looks fun.

  • Ken

    Ugh, why the Inception reference in the beginning? “Hey let’s play off popular movies to get people to pay attention!” UGH. And what the heck was with the weird up shot of him floating/his boots in the camera?

    I just feel like the whole style of these movies is really ugly and dated, story aside…the humans are ridiculously unappealing.

  • wgan

    i like puss but resent the rest manikin human clones from shrek, they used to be fresh airs in cg animation, but over years they stick on and on it become almost stinky

  • Steven M.

    I’ve already lost hope in the first 12 seconds.

  • Rez

    if there was ONE thing that i liked about the puss in shrek, it was that he was shrouded in mystery, a cat of few words, a stealth assassin.
    with this teaser, i feel like i’m watching a completely different cat! and a boring and predictable one at that…

  • It could be worse. They could have made a DONKEY movie.

    But the numbers don’t lie. The kids love Puss in Boots. Audiences love Puss in Boots. You would have to be an idiot not to make a spin off of a character that has such a huge fan base.

    Granted, when I heard they were making a Puss movie back in 08, I was rolling my eyes. But this trailer caught me off guard.

    I’m going to be assaulted by all of you for saying this, but I actually interested in seeing this film. I watched it once and was like “Ehh……” But then I watched it again, only this time forgetting that he was part of the Shrek movies.

    Say what you will about the rest of the Shrek series, but as a stand alone character, I think Puss is pretty cool. This trailer shows that Puss is strong enough to carry his own story which portrays him as a romantic, fearless, popular, and a heroic main character.

    All you complainers can whine all you want. People are going to see this movie and its going to make millions of dollars.

  • Puss. Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha wheeeeeeee.

  • You can’t milk a cat.

  • My eyes! The goggles do nothing!

    The only way I’m going to see this stinkburger is if the movie ends with “I have to go now, my home planet needs me.”

    On the other hand, I would totally pay primo dollars to see the 1969 Toei Animation Puss in Boots. That’s a classic.

  • J.M

    Piñatas in Spain???!!

  • anon

    just so you know, DWA doesnt have control of the trailers. It’s Paramount that writes it, DW just does all the work.

  • I’m on a horse.

    • Xgeeme

      lol Yeah, like DreamWorks will make an Old Spice parody with Puss on a horse! Ha!

      … DreamWorks is going to make an Old Spice parody with Puss on a horse now, aren’t they?

      Me and my big mouth.

  • It looks like Shrek… shrek-less

  • Say, fellas, how can we, the producers at Dreamworks animation, take all the goodwill and praise we just built up with MegaMind and How To Train Your Dragon and just, y’know, f*** the hell out of it?

    Two words. Talking cat.

    Shrek was (gratefully) put to rest with the last film. Going back to that world with the big green body still warm in the ground is totally freakin’ low-rent.

    • Ethan

      You’re a dog person, I can tell.

  • Alissa

    Welp, there’s a movie I’ll probably not see. My little sis is more interested in seeing Kung Fu Panda 2 anyway.

    • Xgeeme

      I won’t be the one to say it, but some people may think this film is only being made so they can say, “No THAT movie will stink. Let’s see Kung Fu Panda 2 instead!”

  • Oh cool! A wise-cracking, talking animal with an attitude! What an amazingly original character concept!

  • Mister Twister

    The reason I will go see this is the script being written at the time of Shrek 2.

    Seriously, Shrek 4 sucked big time.

  • Okay…yeah. Kinda creepy.

    Dreamworks seems to have a pattern of releasing something really inspiring and entertaining (How to Train Your Dragon, Kung-Fu Panda) and then releasing something that…doesn’t look like they’re trying that hard. Maybe it’s the atmosphere of the studio (don’t they release two animated films a year?) but it’s almost like they’re trying to make their stuff like it’s fast food. “Make sure every thing’s prepared the exact same way, throw some frozen jokes into a microwave, keep churning it out as fast as possible!” I guess that’s where the ‘business’ aspect of ‘show business’ comes from.

    I don’t mean to sound like a cynical jerk since this is just a teaser. All it’s saying is Dreamworks in making a movie about the popular, suave cat that was in the somewhat popular Shrek movies. I was just hoping this would have more from the original fairy tale. Even if they throw in a ton of pop culture gags, we could at least get some awesome designs of the Ogre that he slays at the end (could probably somehow be related to how he met Shrek!).

    Whatever. I’ll just wait till I see further previews.

  • Oh no.. My love of cats may trump my hatred of Shrek.

  • I think it has a chance of being better than the last 2 Shrek movies.

    But that`s not something to be proud of!
