Does ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish’ have a post-credits scene?

Or rather a purr-st-credits scene?

2022 was undoubtedly a year for some fantastic sequels, with Scream, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Top Gun: Maverick, and Avatar: The Way of Water all releasing in the calendar year. Joining the ranks of these fantastic sequels is Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, which was directed by Joel Crawford. It is the sequel to Puss in Boots, which was released in 2011. If you can cast your mind back to 2004, you might recall that the character of Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) was introduced in Shrek 2 and that he is a part of that franchise.

The film follows our main cat Puss in Boots as he is made to realize that he has used up eight of his nine lives. Helped (and sometimes hindered) by Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) and other members of the fairy tale community, he journeys to find the Last Wish so he can wish back his eight lost lives and continue to live as a fearless outlaw. With the interactive animation being made available to stream on Netflix back in July, some folks who have not yet watched the feature might be wondering whether the film had a post-credits scene back during its theatrical run. So, let’s take a look at the film and reveal whether or not the post-credits scene was as magical as one film buff can imagine.

Is there a post-credits scene in Puss in Boots: The Last Wish?

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish ends in such a way that does not necessarily suggest that the movie will have a post-credits scene. Kitty, Puss, and Perrito (Harvey Guillén) manage to defeat the evil “Big” Jack Horner (John Mulaney), with Puss giving up the Last Wish to be content with Kitty. The trio end the film by sailing off on a ship and heading towards a fresh-faced adventure. 

Whether the film has a post-credits scene is up for debate, as there is no extra scene where any character teases the next film, or a scene where Puss in Boots explained what happened in the movie to Donkey, or anything like that. Instead, if you did happen to stay until the end of the credits, you likely heard the voice of Puss in Boots pay an homage to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and then questioned why you even stayed in the theater. 

It is not as if the film needed a post-credits scene, as the ending of the film manages to wrap up the story well and set up the next entry in the Shrek franchise. However, folks that did stick around for the end of the credits surely did so to humbly watch the names of all the people who worked on the film, including all of the brilliant animators. Or, you might have just stayed to hear the sultry tones of Antonio Banderas one last time before leaving the theater.

If you missed Puss in Boots: The Last Wish while it was in theaters, you can happily stream the animation now over on Netflix.
