We’re excited to announce Puss in Boots as our most recent TMPA winner! This beautifully animated adventure film comes to us courtesy of Dreamworks Animation and Paramount Pictures, who last year brought us How To Train Your Dragon.
Puss in Boots tells the story of Puss, an adventurous rogue who is currently an outlaw. Only by embarking on a perilous journey with Humpty Dumpty and Kitty Softpaws can he hope to clear his name, and right the wrong that landed him in trouble with the law.
Our TMPA jury loved the film, laughing the entire time as they marveled at the technical wizardry capable of putting beautiful landscapes on the screen, particularly with 3D that enhanced rather than detracted from the experience. And while they were entertained by the story and characters, they felt that the story of reconciliation, second chances and the redemption of a troubled friendship was strong enough to meet the standards of the Award, particularly for the audiences that will enjoy the film. For those reasons, we are delighted to add Puss in Boots to our list of TMPA winners!
We recently chatted with the director of the film, Chris Miller. Click here to listen to the full interview!
