Here comes the ogre again. Only this time, it could be his last. Shrek: Forever After will be released in US movie theaters this coming May 21, 2010 while those in the UK will need to wait until July 9, 2010 to watch the film.
This final installment sees our favorite ogre longing for a time when he felt like a “real ogre.” Pretty soon, sneaky Rumpelstiltskin gets the best of him and dupes him into signing a pact. Shrek find himself in a Far Far Away where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king and Fiona is not in his life. It’s up to our green hero to undo what he has done.
Like in the previous three Shrek films, this movie will also be based on fairy tale themes and all the cast will be returning to reprise their roles.
For this final chapter, Shrek is feeling bored with his life. He finds himself signing pitchforks when before he used to growl and scare villagers away. Unfortunately, the sly Rumpelstiltskin picks up on Shrek’s “blues” and tricks him into signing a pact in exchange for taking one day out of his life. Rumpelstiltskin, however, takes the day when Shrek was born. Thus, Shrek finds himself in a world where he does not exist, where ogres are extinct, Donkey fears him, Puss in Boots is fat and lazy and Fiona is a hunting ogre that cannot stand Shrek.
Essentially, Shrek needs to get a kiss from his “True Love” so he can break the spell. But of course, Rumpelstiltskin won’t take that sitting down.
May 21, 2010 will definitely be a special date for many Shrek die-hards.
