DreamWorks Animation has unveiled its newest animated logo sequence, which includes the company’s trademark moon child. The 32-second logo sequence will make its official debut this Saturday, November 26, during the limited theatrical release of Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, followed by a wide release on December 21.
As the moon child soars through the sky, passing by beloved characters from the studio’s most celebrated franchises, including Kung Fu Panda, Shrek, The Boss Baby, How to Train Your Dragon, Trolls, and The Bad Guys, the new DreamWorks Animation logo sequence heralds a new era for the acclaimed animation studio.

“We make fantasies come to life on television, so the idea was simply that you go into a new child’s dreams.” “They’re leading you through this dreamscape and reintroducing you to these legendary figures that we’ve built over the years,” said Kendal Cronkhite, production designer (via The Hollywood Reporter). “The child is surfing, floating, and flying across these galaxies, bringing together all those very different-looking cinematic characters.”
“At the studio, we like to say that all dreamers are welcome here, and the iconic dreamer is that moonchild,” DreamWorks Animation president Margie Cohn said. “People make wishes on stars and gaze to the sky for inspiration.” You set the stage for the entertainment to follow by having them come off the moon and surf around the sky, visiting new and familiar pals.
Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek Pinault, Harvey Guillén, Florence Pugh, Jack Horner, John Mulaney, Wagner Moura, Olivia Colman, Ray Winstone, Samson Kayo, Anthony Mendez, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph star in Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.
According to the synopsis, “the sequel will again follow Puss in Boots as he realizes that his desire for adventure has taken its toll.” “He has used up eight of his nine lives, leaving him with only one.” Puss embarks on an epic journey to retrieve the legendary Last Wish and reclaim his nine lives.
