In this episode we return to the cinematic universe that has captivated audiences for the past two decades: The Shrek-verse. 

The latest film to come out of this cultural phenomenon is Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. In the new movie, a life of living dangerously has caused our hero Puss in Boots to realize he only has one of his nine lives left. 

Confronted with morality in a way that he’s never had to face, Puss sets out on a journey to find the mysterious last wish and restore himself to his former glory.

ATMI producers Madison Knutson and Edison Wallace-Moyer got together on Zoom to discuss the new movie, the theme of death throughout this kid’s movie, and what it means for the future of the Shrek-verse.

Hosted by AJ Yambao.

Music by Kendrick Whiteman.
