Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves is a upcoming American computer-animated fantasy comedy film produced by DreamWorks Animation.
In November 2012, executive producer Guillermo del Toro said that they already did a couple of script drafts for a sequel, and that the director Chris Miller wants to take Puss on an adventure to exotic places. In April 2014, Antonio Banderas, the voice of Puss, said that the work on the sequel had just begun. In June 2014, the movie was titled Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves and was scheduled to be released on November 2, 2018. Two months later, it was moved back to December 21, 2018. In March 2015, Banderas said in an interview that the script was under restructuring, and that Shrek may appear in the film. In February 2019, Bob Persichetti, the director of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, signed on to direct the sequel. Latifa Ouaou, who produced the original Puss in Boots film, will oversee development of the sequel.
