Now it isn’t that long until DreamWorks Animation unleashes their cool green ogre, Shrek, on the silver screen for the fourth. On May 21 we can see the fourth movie titled, Shrek Forever After: The Final Chapter.
In Shrek Forever, Shrek found himself bored to death with his ordinary lifestyle as a domesticated family man. Then he meets Rumpelstiltskin (Paul McCartney), who offers Shrek a day off where he could feel like a real ogre again. All that Rumpelstiltskin asks in return, for this, is one day from Shrek’s life.
Shrek thinks that one day sounds like a real bargain, so he signs the contract, without knowing that the day Rumpelstiltskin decides to take out of Shrek’s life, is the day when Shrek was born.
As Shrek never was, he finds himself in a twisted and altered version of Far Far Away, where Rumpelstiltskin is king and ogres are hunted. Likewise, the rest of the old gang has also changed, the Donkey is now an intellectual, who has never meet and fears Shrek, Puss resemble Garfield, being fat and lazy, Lord Farquaad is still alive and Fiona is the leader of a pack of hunting ogres.
To revert everything back to normal, Shrek must share a kiss of true love by sunrise, but to prevent this from happening, Rumpelstiltskin has sent out an army of vicious witches to stop him.
I think that the writers have come up with an original plot, good enough to get me little exciting to drag myself down to the cinemas and see how it all plays out, actually.
Even though it’s said that this one will be the final movie about Shrek, there is some buzz that says otherwise – that we shall get a fifth movie as well. But, I think that four movies are enough, for me anyway, so I hope this really is the final chapter. What do you think, would you be able to handle another movie of Shrek, or do you think enough is enough?
Here are a couple of new character posters which where released the other day.
