It’s truly the season of giving because all the movie studios are releasing trailers and posters for next year’s biggest films. First Iron Man 2, then Clash of the Titans, and now we have the newest Shrek sequel, Shrek Forever After. It’s the fourth and final film in the DreamWorks animated franchise, which will debut during the 2010 summer block buster season.
The first poster for Shrek Forever After shows that the main characters have gone through some serious changes since the last time we saw them. The most drastic change comes from the once svelte Puss in Boots. What happened to him? All the usual suspects have returned to lend their vocal talents such as, Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, and Antonio Banderes. The tagline on the one sheet states that this will be “The Final Chapter,” but we’ll see if that sticks after the movie debuts and makes a boatload of money.
As for the trailer, it’s barely over a minute long and shows Shrek stuck in the middle of an alternate universe. This explains Puss in Boots weight gain, and Fiona’s “Xena the Warrior Princess” poster look. The film will be available in 3-D and will debut in conventional and IMAX theaters on May 21, 2010.
