Under construction in the Shrek-themed "Far, Far Away" land, Puss In Boots' Giant Journey will take visitors on a "a wild goose chase with Puss and his accomplice, Kitty Soft Paws," according to the park's press release. The ride is expected to open by the end of the year, though the park has not yet confirmed a specific opening date.

In addition, Universal Studios Singapore in September will debut a live show featuring Puss in Boots and Kitty Soft Paws in Far, Far Away. The Dance for the Magic Beans will feature a "dance off" between the two Dreamworks Animation characters, followed by a meet-and-greet.

The two new attractions expand the presence of Dreamworks Animation characters in the park, which features two entire lands devoted to the studios' IP: Far, Far Away and Madagascar.

SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment now owns the theme park rights to the Madagascar characters in the United States, while Universal retains the park rights to the Shrek family of characters at all of its parks worldwide.
