How would you like to know the real story about Puss ‘N Boots? Well now you and your little ones can learn all about it with the release of The True Story of Puss ‘N Boots. Coming to DVD from Phase 4 Films, this animated movie is true to the original story based on the famous Puss ‘N Boots character by Charles Perrault.
Starring Emmy and Golden Globe winner William Shatner as the voice of Puss, this movie is a great family film about accomplishing your dreams no matter who you are.
A young farmers son inherits a strange talking cat with magical boots. With his cunning wit, Puss helps him win the heart of the Princess while battling devious suitors that are after the throne.
First off if you are trying to compare this Puss ‘N Boots story to the Puss from Shrek, then you will be sadly disappointed. The characters are totally different. Once you separate out the movies and characters though it makes it easier to watch the movie.
This movie is just over an hour and its animation is not as cheesy as I expected. It is a story of a man who inherits a cat who talks and wears red leather boots that he makes for him, his dad’s dying request. After falling for the princess, Puss takes matters into his own hands and helps him win over her heart. It is a very strange story with very strange characters. Now my 3 year old watched this and really only liked the music and there was some funny songs throughout the movie. He wasn’t scared but I could definitely see some young kids being scared of certain scenes and characters.
Honestly I am indifferent to this movie. I don’t really like it but I don’t hate it either. The dialogue and story is so-so but the animation and songs were okay.
