Here's Where You Can Watch Puss In Boots: The Last Wish At Home

"Puss In Boots: The Last Wish" marks the first time in more than a decade that we have seen anything from the "Shrek" franchise in a feature-length film. The last proper movie starring everyone's favorite grumpy green ogre voiced by Mike Meyers was released in 2010 with "Shrek Forever After," a worthy if underwhelming denouement to the arc of Shrek and Fiona (Cameron Diaz). This didn't mean that the story was entirely over, though. 2011 saw what was to be the first spin-off starring the debonair ginger Puss In Boots (Antonio Banderas).

"Puss In Boots" was a box office smash, continuing the combination of madcap comedic fracturing of the fairy tales we all grew up with. A sequel was announced in 2012. And then? Well, it sounds like it was another project stuck in development hell. Guillermo del Toro was initially attached as producer, promising an interesting and potentially gothic direction for the feline swashbuckler. "Puss In Boots: The Last Wish" has gone through its fair share of directors and producers since then, but in 2022,  production finally started.

It looks like all the waiting has paid off. Since its theatrical release in December, "The Last Wish" has done well at the box office, banking almost $200 thousand worldwide (via Box Office Mojo), almost double its production budget. This means the time is nigh for Puss to move to streaming, allowing everyone who missed him in the theaters to catch him at home.

Puss In Boots: The Last Wish is available to rent or buy on streaming

Here's the good news: "Puss In Boots: The Last Wish" is on several streaming services, most notably Amazon, Apple, and Vudu (per Polygon). The bad news is that watching it will require a price on top of the regular subscriber fee. The price isn't insignificant either. For every service, it is $24.99 to rent, and $29.99 to own.

This is expected only to last while "The Last Wish" remains in theaters, however, the clear incentive is to venture out to experience Puss' latest adventures on the big screen. After the movie is done there, it will be moving to other subscription streaming services, where it presumably will be viewable as part of the regular sub.

The reason for this is down to the deal struck in 2021 between Universal — parent company of DreamWorks Animation — and Netflix. After the theatrical run ends for "Puss In Boots: The Last Wish," it enters into a somewhat finicky arrangement. "Yes, Netflix will have exclusive rights to animated films from Illumination and Dreamworks in the US," wrote Mariella Moon at Engadget, "but only for a chunk of the 18-month period after the movie's theatrical run."

Moon — who earlier in their article explicitly mentioned "The Last Wish" as one of the films to which this arrangement will apply — elaborated further. After leaving theaters, movies that fall under this deal will spend the next four months on Peacock — which is also owned by Universal's own parent company Comcast — before moving to Netflix for ten months, then back to Peacock for another four. In the meantime, the best way to see "Puss In Boots: The Last Wish" is either in the theaters or by paying the rental or purchase fee.
