Gingy has been a regular in every 'Shrek' movie and is voiced by Conrad Vernon. Gingy is a Brownish Gingerbread man with white eyes, hands, and waist, he has light blue eyebrows, a red mouth, and Purple Gumdrop Buttons (which is his favorite part of him). He also has four lines of white frosting on each leg, which he used to reattach his legs after Farquaad broke them off.
According to the official synopsis of the film, "Puss in Boots discovers that his passion for adventure has taken its toll: he has burnt through eight of his nine lives. Puss sets out on an epic journey to find the mythical Last Wish and restore his nine lives with his loved ones."
'Puss in Boots: The Last Wish' is scheduled to be released theatrically on December 21, 2022.
