Shrek Forever After

The picture above shows us our first glimpse at SHREK FOREVER AFTER, the fourth and final movie in the SHREK series. Not surprisingly, the image shows us more of the same. There is Shrek the ogre, along with Rumpelstiltskin, who up until now has only been an incredibly minor character, but now has a major role to play.

In the film, Shrek is beginning to feel the pressures of domestic life and in order to get his mojo, or "roar," back he makes a deal with Rumpelstiltskin. In classic Shrek fashion, "the pact goes awry and Shrek must confront what life would be like in Far Far Away if he had never existed. That translates into Donkey being forced into cart-pulling duty, fat and lazy Puss in Boots trading his sword for a pink bow and the underhanded Rumpelstiltskin ruling the kingdom."

Going along with this new 3D craze, SHREK FOREVER AFTER will be the first in the franchise to utilize the technology. Also, as I mentioned earlier, it will be the last movie about the ogre, to which I'm sure many people will rejoice. Personally, I have mixed feelings. I'm happy because I think the series has gotten progressively worse over the past three movies. I'm sad because this seems like the only good thing Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy got going right now and I don't see their careers bouncing back any time soon.

Look for SHREK FOREVER AFTER in theaters on May 21, 2010 and look for the first trailer in front of AVATAR next month.
