Shrek Goes For Four

February 23, 2009

shrek1Shrek,  Shrek, Shrek and more Shrek…. The time has finally come, Dreamworks Animation has the fourth installment in the Shrek series, Shrek Goes Fourth, set to release in 2010. Now personally i have no problem with the Shrek series, honestly i’m a in the closet fan. The first one was a classic, an innovation of movie magic and animation that will have an lasting effect on the film industry, followed by an equally impressive sequel. The third installment didn’t quite measure up to the standards of it’s earlier counterparts, but wasn’t a complete failure (at least not to me). Now they’re releasing a fourth and who knows what to expect.  From what i hear, the fourth will have Rumpelstiltskin as Shrek’s villainous foe, speculation has arose regarding if the infamous Tom Cruise will voice the fairy tale creature or if they will keep Conrad Vernon(who voiced him in the previous installment), who knows these days with actors giving half ass interviews . But one thing is for certain there will be a fourth and Rumpelstiltskin will have him moment in the spotlight.

For those interested here is an early plot synopsis, thanks to SlashFilm.


After challenging an evil dragon, rescuing a beautiful princess and saving your in-laws’ kingdom, what’s an ogre to do? Well, if you’re Shrek, you suddenly wind up a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away like he used to, a reluctant Shrek now agrees to autograph  pitch forks. What’s happened to this ogre’s roar?


Longing for the days when he felt like a “real ogre”, Shrek is duped into signing a pact with the smooth-talking deal maker, Rumplestiltskin.

Shrek suddenly finds himself in a in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumplestiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona have never met. Now, it’s up to Shrek to undo all he’s done in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world and reclaiming his one True Love.
