Whether you were delirious or dismayed to discover yet more Shrek sequels were in production, chances are the ugly-Ogre-that-could will still rule the box office come opening weekend, and you'll likely be seeing it.
The next installment is titled Shrek Forever After - get it? As in 4-ever - as in this is the fourth Shrek...
Anyway, along with the below picture, courtesy of Collider, which shows Shrek and the mischevious munchikin Rumplestiltskin, new plot details have emerged, and it all sounds a little It's A Wonderful Life. Details below;
The loveable Scots-brogued Shrek, after getting married and having kids, is struggling with domestic existence. He strikes a deal with the underhanded Rumpelstiltskin, and ends up seeing what the world would be like without him in it.
In the Shrek free world, Donkey has been forced into cart-pulling duty, fat and lazy Puss in Boots trades his sword for a pink bow and the devious Rumpelstiltskin rules the kingdom.
New voices for the film include Kathy Griffin and Kristin Schaal voicing a pair of ogre-hunting witches and a resistance group led by Jon Hamm as, says director Mike Mitchell (Sky High), the best-looking ogre you’ve ever seen.
Well that hasn't exactly got our knickers in a twist, but we do love Jon Hamm.
The trailer for Shrek Forever After is expected to premiere before screenings of Avatar this Christmas. The film is released July 9, 2010.
