I enjoyed the first Puss in Boots film. It wasn’t anything amazing, but it was definitely my favorite film in the Shrek universe as I’m not really a fan of the Shrek films.
And I had known that a sequel to the film had been in development for a while. I remember when it was going to be called Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves. Having not heard anything for a while, I thought the film would just be cancelled altogether. But somewhat out of nowhere, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish was scheduled to be released in 2022.
I knew that I wanted to see it, but was in no rush to until critic reviews started coming in. Multiple film reviewers I follow listed this as not just their favorite animated film of the year, but also one of their favorite films of the year! My curiosities were piqued, so I decided to check this film out in the theaters (something I don’t do often) and…I’m so glad that I did!

Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is a story that I enjoy very much and I like to check out as many adaptations of it as I can and oh boy, there are a lot! There are silent versions, live-action versions, animated versions, musical versions, etc. One of my favorite adaptations is the live-action 1970 musical film, Scrooge, starring Albert Finney as the stingy, curmudgeonly Ebenezer Scrooge.
I thought the songs (by Leslie Bricusse) were mostly well-written, the acting was wonderful, and the overall film was delightful. I was surprised to discover that an animated remake of the film would be coming to Netflix entitled Scrooge: A Christmas Carol.
What did I think of this animated remake directed by Stephen Donnelly? Read on to find out!
