Puss in Boots

Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion SKG, Inc.‘s Oscar-nominated movie Puss in Boots has earned approx­i­mately $507 mil­lion to date at the world­wide box office, the stu­dio announced Monday.

On behalf of the entire stu­dio, it is my plea­sure to con­grat­u­late the Puss in Boots cre­ative team on reach­ing this fan­tas­tic mile­stone,” said Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion CEO Jef­frey Katzen­berg. “Fol­low­ing the film’s recog­ni­tion by the Acad­emy as nom­i­nee for Best Ani­mated Fea­ture Film, we could not be hap­pier with the response to Puss in Boots both crit­i­cally and com­mer­cially across the globe.”

I am so thrilled that peo­ple around the world con­tinue to respond to Puss in Boots and I’d like to thank the incred­i­ble team of cre­ative tal­ent who worked tire­lessly to bring the story of our swash­buck­ling hero to life!” added the film’s direc­tor, Chris Miller.

Both Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion releases from 2011, Kung Fu Panda 2 and Puss in Boots, received 2012 Acad­emy Award nom­i­na­tions for Best Ani­mated Fea­ture Film.

Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion has been named one of the “100 Best Com­pa­nies to Work For” by For­tune mag­a­zine for four con­sec­u­tive years. This year, DWA ranks #14 on the list.
