Shrek Forever After Trailer in Front of Avatar


DreamWorks Animation is going to try and squeeze another dollar-flavored drip of ogre milk from the Shrek teat this May with Shrek Forever After. All of us will get an early sniff of Donkey (Eddie Murphy), Puss (Antonio Banderas), Fiona (Cameron Diaz) and Shrek (Mike Myers) when the teaser trailer debuts in front of Avatar on December 18th.

Shrek Forever After reunites the entire gaggle of fairytale creatures from the last three movies, as well as introducing Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn), who, from what I gather of the plot, turns Shrek’s world upside down and sends him to some bizarre, alternate reality Far Far Away where Donkey is a genius, Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) is still ruler and Shrek and Fiona have never met.

The question I have is can the Shrek franchise regroup after a disappointing and lackluster Shrek the Third? I don’t know about you, but after relishing in the fresh comedy and spunk of the first two movies, the third movie felt ill-conceived and overbearing. My gut tells me Shrek Forever After probably will follow suit, but one can hope, right? Dare to dream!

More to come once we get our hands on the trailer – hopefully before Avatar hits theaters!

  • Shrek needs to meet a fairytale ending. The kind reserved for dragons and evil wizards at the sharp end of a really big sword. These suckers inspired everything that’s wrong with animated movies these days. Shrek blows.

  • The first was smart and well done.

    These days its all about creating franchises that once successful can be exploited until people hate them.

    You can now see this in gaming, for example take a look at Bobby Kotick(Ceo of Activision)he’s just one of many of these suits who would sell his mother if it yielded a profit.

    Look at your Guitar Heroe’s and Tony Hawk’s, they’ve been shoved down our throats and driven into the ground by asshats like this guy and his giant publishing corp. until no one even respects the product that was once new and innovative.

    Andy called it perfectly “DreamWorks Animation is going to try and squeeze another dollar-flavored drip of ogre milk from the Shrek teat” its sad when they dont know when to stop and risk something new.

    But with all my bitching n moaning this new tired and overdone Shrek will bank millions, so wtf do i know..

  • Erroneous. The first and second Shrek films were financially and critically well-received across the board. The third movie is the one that filled the DreamWorks lounge with the stench of fart, and the one that makes it difficult for me to believe the fourth Shrek film will redeem the franchise.

  • After watching the trailer @ on the main
    page, all i can say is that he characters still have the same humor
    and the cat is hilarious. I can't say I can't wait for this movie,
    but when it comes out I will gladly enjoy it.
