 Shrek Forever After Trailer

Following the initial teaser trailer we now have a full trailer for the fourth film in the popular Shrek franchise, entitled Shrek Forever After. The name and the poster suggest this will be the final installment but tell that to the studio execs once this sequel makes another gazillion dollars at the box office…

Before we get to the trailer, let’s remind ourselves of what this particular Shrek adventure entails:

Longing for the days when he felt like a “real ogre,” Shrek is duped into signing a pact with the smooth-talking deal-maker, Rumpelstiltskin (see pic above) and finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin 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.

I like that they’re bringing in a well known fairy-tale character like Rumpelstiltskin as a sort of “villain.” I have to admit it’s not a bad story, certainly taking the franchise in a new direction instead of rehashing ideas (although I’m sure we’ll have the same old overabundance of pop culture jokes and unfunny slapstick).

Without further ado, here’s the new Shrek Forever After trailer, courtesy of Yahoo:

Although it just looks like the typical stuff you find in the Shrek movies that have come before, I have to admit I chuckled a few times throughout that trailer. Namely at the stuff with Puss in Boots, especially at the end when he wants to borrow Donkey’s tongue icon razz Shrek Forever After Trailer .

However, the style of Shrek – with its overload of one-liner and pop culture jokes – means that there will obviously be jokes that work when presented out of context in a trailer. But something tells me (as was the case with the second and third movies) that this brand of humor will wear thin very quickly.

Those of you who are fans of the franchise will be happy to know that all three of the main voice actors – Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy – are back for the fourth movie. Antonio Banderas  is also returning as Puss in Boots (who is getting his own spinoff movie), and joining the fun are Julie Andrews, Justin Timberlake, Jon Hamm, Maya Rudolph, Amy Sedaris, Larry King, Regis Philbin and Kathy Griffin. Once again, a Shrek film will be littered with voices you know you recognize from somewhere but can’t quite place.

What do you think of the latest trailer for Shrek Forever After? Are you a fan of the franchise?

Shrek Forever After will make its world premier at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 21st. It hits 3D and regular 2D theaters on May 21st, 2010.

  1. I'm on the fence with this one. I really enjoyed Shrek but not so much the sequels that followed. Rumpelstiltskin looks like an interesting villain. However, I'm sure my daughter will want to see it, so I'm probably going to be in the theater with those 3D glasses.

  2. Even though I'm a little tired of Shrek sequels, I still find Puss in Boots to be awesome.

  3. I got to say, Shrek, I'm tired of you. DVD rental at best.

  4. I really loved Shrek and Shrek 2 but was very disappointed and unimpressed by Shrek the third.

    I can't say I'm excited for this.

  5. I know I shouldn't, but…… I frikkin love Shrek movies. I know I know the movie is just crap fed to us to make money for some fat cat hollywood execs or so that fast food chains can sell happy meals etc etc, and their is no real message coveyed etc etc. But lets face it, the movie is gonna be really funny and when you tell people about what made you laugh, they are mostly gonna laugh wether they have seen it or not, because the majority of people like Shrek movies….. why I hear you ask… cos they are FUNNY
