After the exceptional success of ‘The Bad Guys’ and ‘Minions: The Rise of Gru’, Universal Pictures is ready to end the year with another big animation film ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish’, and as a spin-off to the “Shrek” film franchise and sequel to the ‘Puss in Boots (2011)’, the production is expected to make a substantial profit on its basic model of low cost and big profit due to buzz. While larger-than-life films are more important to other productions, that model has worked well for Universal, and even though ‘Puss in Boots 2’ is an anticipated film, the production remains at the limit of its cost.
Puss in Boots The Last Wish Budget Revealed
According to a verified source, ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish’ is a medium-budgeted film, and the makers spent around $90 million to produce the film before marketing costs. The shocking thing about these numbers is that the production cost of the original ‘Puss in Boots’ was $130 million in 2011 and big successful, and according to these figures, the budget of the 2nd film should be more than the first, but nothing like this happened.
Discuss further, ‘Puss in Boots (2011)’ was produced in collaboration with Paramount Pictures, which worked on larger than life films model, while for ‘Puss in Boots 2’, the production partner is Universal Pictures, so reducing cost is normal because Universal has reduced the cost of several sequels in the past as well. On the other side, it’s also true that $90 million is a rough number, and the production hasn’t released an official; nothing can be said until then.
With an immense buzz, ‘Puss in Boots 2’ has received mostly positive reviews from critics, and there are good expectations from the film at the box office as well; it clearly shows that the low-cost model is very beneficial. There is a disadvantage also that due to the release date, the film will clash with ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’, which is bound to have its consequences. ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish’ was produced by Mark Swift under the production banners of DreamWorks Animation, and Universal Pictures will distribute it.
