Into Film and Universal Pictures have launched a new learning resource for students aged 7-11 to celebrate the release of Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, in cinemas February 3.

Take your class on a storytelling adventure

Everyone's favourite fear-defying feline is swashbuckling his way back to the big screen in Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. Universal Pictures' new adventure sees Puss in Boots - now on the last of his nine lives - embark on a grand quest to restore the ones he's lost, with help from former nemesis Kitty Softpaws and the relentlessly cheerful Perrito. 

Puss in Boots: Venture Better Together is a two-lesson learning sequence which draws on the themes of the film to engage 7-11 year-olds across English/literacy, design and technology, RSE/PSHE and art and design. 

Our new resource contains creative storytelling activities which enable pupils to explore the practice of working in teams. Students will also be introduced to the concept of positive risk-taking, encouraging them to step out of their comfort zone safely and achieve their goals.

About Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

This February, everyone’s favorite leche-loving, swashbuckling, fear-defying feline returns.  

For the first time in more than a decade, DreamWorks Animation presents a new adventure in the Shrek universe as daring outlaw Puss in Boots discovers that his passion for peril and disregard for safety have taken their toll. Puss has burned through eight of his nine lives, though he lost count along the way. Getting those lives back will send Puss in Boots on his grandest quest yet. 

Academy Award® nominee Antonio Banderas returns as the voice of the notorious PiB as he embarks on an epic journey into the Black Forest to find the mythical Wishing Star and restore his lost lives. But with only one life left, Puss will have to humble himself and ask for help from his former partner and nemesis: the captivating Kitty Softpaws (Oscar® nominee Salma Hayek). 

In their quest, Puss and Kitty will be aided—against their better judgment—by a ratty, chatty, relentlessly cheerful mutt, Perrito (Harvey Guillén, What We Do in the Shadows). Together, our trio of heroes will have to stay one step ahead of Goldilocks (Oscar® nominee Florence Pugh, Black Widow) and the Three Bears Crime Family, “Big” Jack Horner (Emmy winner John Mulaney, Big Mouth) and terrifying bounty hunter, The Big Bad Wolf (Wagner Moura, Narcos).
