Universal recently announced that it has two new DreamWorks Animation movies for the year 2022, with one of it being the second instalment of the "Shrek" spin-off, titled, "Puss in Boots: The Last Wish".
The said animated feature will be directed by Joel Crawford, who previously helmed the Golden Globe nominated "The Croods: A New Age". It will again employ the voice talent of actor Antonio Banderas - though no news as to which characters from the first movie will be returning as well.
