I loved the first Shrek. It remains one of my favorite animated movies. I really liked Shrek 2. It made me laugh like hell and it still carried some of the charm from the first. However, Shrek The Third made me so angry that I couldn’t stand to care for another sequel.
We’ve known for awhile that they’ve been making a fourth Shrek, which I have no interest in, and Mike Mitchell assures that this will be the last one.
Worst Previews reports:
After rescuing a princess, getting hitched and fathering triplets, Shrek is feeling over-domesticated. “He has lost his roar,” said Mitchell. “It used to send villagers running away in terror. Now they run to him and ask him to sign their pitchforks and torches.”
To regain his ogre mojo, he strikes a deal with Rumpelstiltskin, the wee troublemaker who popped up briefly in the last two installments. Of course, 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.
Note: They said that the last time.
Maybe it’ll be good. I dunno, I haven’t seen it. Hopefully they’ll do better than they did on the last film and learn from their mistakes.
Shrek Forever After releases next May and the trailer will premiere in front of James Cameron’s Avatar (which is gonna kick some ass!)
