Netflix – The Adventures of Puss in BootsPuss in Boots embarks on incredible new adventures in his unforgettably singular style in DreamWorks Animation’s The Adventures of Puss in Boots, an all-new Netflix original TV series.  The first five 22-minute episodes are available to Netflix members in the US, Canada, Latin America, UK, Ireland, the Nordics, Benelux and France to watch now.

The Adventures of Puss in Boots finds the world’s most famous feline fortune-hunter in the hidden city of San Lorenzo, a mythical land that is invisible to the outside world thanks to a magic spell that protects its quirky inhabitants – not to mention its wondrous treasure.  When Puss in Boots accidentally breaks the spell, he must do more than fight off an endless legion of invaders and marauders … he must become a legend.

With a sweeping, epic visual flair and extraordinary quests in each episode, The Adventures of Puss in Boots combines adventure and comedy with the quick-witted, nimble-footed style that is as synonymous with its hero as his namesake boots.

Its voice cast is led by Eric Bauza as Puss in Boots, along with Jayma Mays, Laraine Newman, Joshua Rush. Throughout first season, recurring and guest-starring voices will include Emmy® Award-winning actor John Leguizamo, Danny Trejo, Maria Bamford, John Rhys-Davies, Robbie Rist and Jim Cummings.

“Action, comedy, adventure and heart combine with a dazzling visual style to make The Adventures of Puss in Boots both unique and timeless,” said Margie Cohn, head of television for DreamWorks Animation. “Puss is a hero for the ages.  With a cold glass of leche in one hand and his sword in the other, there’s nothing that could get in the way of this swashbuckling hero … except hairballs.”

Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix, added, “Each episode is an exciting fantasy-adventure, which makes watching The Adventures of Puss in Boots an event the whole family will enjoy.”

In addition to the five episodes of The Adventures of Puss in Boots that premiere on 16 January, new episodes will debut throughout the coming year. The Adventures of Puss in Boots is the latest in a rapidly expanding list of original series that DreamWorks Animation is creating for Netflix which includes Turbo FAST and All Hail King Julien and soon will grow to encompass a brand-new season of DreamWorks Dragons and the adventure-laden DinoTrux.
