First Look at Kitty Softpaws in Puss In Boots


USA Today has this first look at Kitty Softpaws, voiced by Salma Hayek, in Puss In Boots, opening on November 4. The article includes the following quotes from Antonio Banderas on the story and the new characters:

Banderas says the origin story will explore how the cat came to be hired as an assassin to kill Shrek before having a change of heart. “At the beginning, it is more of an homage to Sergio Leone spaghetti Westerns and takes place in present day. Then the film flashes back to an orphanage, where Puss in Boots starts a relationship with an … egg,” Banderas says, laughing. And not just an egg, but a bad egg: Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis). But the most anticipated new character is cat burglar Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek). “She steals my boots,” Banderas says, “and my heart.”
