PUSS: Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might have this wish I wish tonight.

Once upon a time, a Wishing Star fell from the sky.

Scorching a great woods black.

The Dark Forest was born, the Wishing Star hidden at its center, filling it with new life, and the legend of a single wish locked away in the star, waiting to be granted.

♪ ♪

MAN: Puss? Puss.

Puss in Boots.

(groaning softly)

(grunts)

Uh, where am I?

Not to worry. You’re in good hands.

My hands!

I am the village doctor.

I am also the village barber, veterinarian, dentist and witchfinder.

(coughing)

And in my professional opinion, you need a wash, a blowout and a little trim around the hindquarters.

Uh…

That’s my professional barber opinion.

But, putting on my doctor’s hat, I think we need to run a few tests.

All right. Reflexes.

(Puss yowls)

Catlike.

Temperature.

(growls, yelps)

Now lift your tail and relax.

(gasps)

Trust me, I run hot. Yep.

Then how about the latest in modern medical technology?

Leeches!

(leech squeals)

To draw out the evil humors.

(hisses)

Suit yourself. More for me.

Uh, listen, Doctor.

Thanks for everything, you know, but I am feeling great.

Strong, like a bull! You know?

Now, do you know a good place to get some gazpacho?

Please. This is serious.

What is it?

Puss in Boots, how do I say this?

You died. (blows)

Doctor, please.

Relax! I am Puss in Boots.

I laugh at death.

(laughs) You see?

And anyway, I am a cat.

I have nine lives.

And how many times have you died already?

Uh… I don’t know.

I never counted.

I am not really a math guy, you know?

Gato.

Take it easy, Doctor.

Let’s see, uh… (chuckles)

There was the running of the bulls in Pamplona.

Watch.

No. Puss in Boots doesn’t need a spotter.

Watch. (grunts)

(screeches)

No need to pull into port.

This will revolutionize travel.

Watch.

Uh, excuse me. Does this have shellfish in it?

Yes, sir.

Eh.

Puss, I think you set the oven too high.

I am a master of the baking. Watch.

(Gingy screams)

And then there was the giant today.

(bell clangs)

So, what is that? Like, uh, uh, four?

That makes eight, Puss.

You are down to your last life.

My prescription: no more adventures for you.

You need to retire.

Me? Retire?

(laughing): Are you the village comedian as well?

Puss, is there any safe place you can go?

Any special someone you can rely on in this moment of need?

(chuckles) I am Puss in Boots, loved by one and all.

Anyone in particular?

I mean, uh, how could I possibly choose?

Mm-hmm.

This is the address of Mama Luna.

She is a cat fancier, always on the lookout for a new lap cat.

You will be safe there.

Lap cat?

I am no lap cat, Doctor.

I am Puss in Boots!

Not anymore.

Barber’s orders.

I mean, doctor’s orders.

And remember, Puss, death comes for us all.

Treat?

You’ve really got to work on your bedside manner.

(laughs) I am Puss in Boots.

I am no one’s lap cat.

That doctor is a quack and a crazy man.

He should stick to cutting hair.

Last call, Señor Boots.

(thunder rumbling)

Another glass of cream. Make it your heaviest.

Oh, I keep the heavy stuff in the back.

(scoffs) “Retire.”

You are too good-looking to retire.

Well, well.

If it isn’t Puss in Boots himself.

In the flesh.

Uh, hey.

There’s the famous hat, the feather and, of course, the boots.

My compliments to your cobbler.

Uh, good to meet you, too.

Hey. I never do this, but can I get your autograph?

Been following you for a long time.

Sign right there.

Puss in Boots laughs in the face of death, bounty hunter.

So I’ve heard.

You will find your reward does not come easily.

Swamp of Infinite Sorrows?

Mountains of Misery?

The Abyss of Eternal Loneliness?

What’s your story?

My story? Oh.

It’s actually a very funny story. (laughs)

Back when I was a pup,

me and my littermates lived with a family.

A family full of pranksters who liked to play hide-and-seek, and I was always it.

Pick on the little guy, am I right? (sniffs)

They tried putting me in a packing crate, a dumpster.

No matter how hard they tried, I’d always find them.

So, one day, they get creative and they put me in a sock with a rock in it.

(laughs)

And then throw me in a river.

I gnawed a hole in the sock, and I swam to the surface.

Never found them or my littermates.

So I guess I’m still it.

(laughs)

Wow.

That is the saddest funny story I’ve ever heard.

Well, joke’s on them.

That sock they put me in, I grew into it.

So, I got a great story and a free sweater out of it.

Win-win.

Dude, you didn’t win.

You of all people should have a wish.

I already have a comfy sweater and two best friends.

Yeah, get those lives back.

Become the legend again, town to town.

(crowd chanting “Puss in Boots!”)

Party to party.

(jovial chatter, cheering)

Puss in Boots walks alone.

Yeah, Puss in Boots walks alone.

Was the legend so big there was no room for anyone else?

Oh, the legend’s still big, gato.

It’s you that got small.

Yeah, you changed, man.

I hear he’s best friends with a dog now.

And he doesn’t even have a sword.

(laughs) Some hero.

You’ve become a scaredy-cat.

We should call him Wuss in Boots.

Ah, no, no, no, no.

(laughter)

Didn’t you hear? His new name is Pickles.

So lame.

(laughter)

Where is your litter box, Pickles?

You know what? You guys are jerks.

Which is very conflicting for me.

I’ll find my own way out. Adios.

Oh, you think you are better than us?

Without us, you will always live a life of…

Fear.

You.

I do love the smell of fear.

(sniffs) It’s intoxicating.

(hiccups) It is?

Sorry to crash the party with your past lives.

(chuckling): Or your past deaths, as I like to call them.

(echoing): I was there to witness all of them.

Each frivolous end.

But you didn’t even notice me because Puss in Boots laughs in the face of death, right?

But you’re not laughing now.

You are no bounty hunter.

You are…

Death.

And I don’t mean it metaphorically or rhetorically or poetically or theoretically or in any other fancy way.

I’m Death, straight up.

And I’ve come for you, Puss in Boots.

But I’m still alive.

(chuckles) You know…

(inhales sharply) I’m not a cat person.

I find the very idea of nine lives absurd.

And you didn’t value any of them.

So, why don’t I do us both a favor and take this last one now?

That’s cheating!

Shh. Don’t tell.

Run, Puss in Boots!

Make the wish!

Go ahead, run for it.

The one thing that makes you mildly useful is your nose, and apparently, you can’t even use that.

Goldi.

I’m starting to think this wish isn’t what you promised us.

Leave off, Baby.

So, what is it, eh?

What’s your “just right”? What’s so blasted important that you’ve got us stranded in this haunted forest?

I’m getting a family! That’s what.

A proper family.

Then everything will be just right.

Your “just right” is getting rid of us?

Well, I guess some people just stick around until the porridge is gone, eh, Goldi?

Oh, yeah? You want to know what my wish was?

Someone, anyone I could trust.

Hey!

In my whole life, I’ve never had that.

But I thought I finally found that someone without a wish.

I thought it was you.
