A spin-off from the Shrek franchise, Puss in Boots released its second trailer on June 20, with a look at the adventures of the swashbuckling feline before meeting Shrek and pals.

The animated story takes a twist on the fairy tale as the daring cat teams with mastermind Humpty Dumpty and a street-savvy Kitty Softpaws to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs to protect the treasures from landing in the wrong hands.

Filled with cat-like charms and action-packed chases, his "brave and noble quest to protect the innocent" finds the cat heeding the call to save the world.

The 3D family-friendly film features the voices of Antonio Banderas ( Mask of Zorro) as Puss in Boots, Salma Hayek ( The Pirates! series), Zach Galifianakis ( The Hangover Part II) and Billy Bob Thornton ( Bad News Bears).

The film is directed by Chris Miller, who helmed Shrek the Third and is also a voice actor who has performed in Shrek, Madagascar and other animated films.

Puss in Boots opens November 4 in North America and around the world throughout December for the holidays, possibly as an introduction to a new franchise.
