Shrek Forever After, formerly known as Shrek 4, Shrek 4Ever After, Shrek: The Final Chapter, and previously titled Shrek Goes Fourth is an upcoming American 2010 animated film. It is planned to be released in cinemas May 21, 2010 in the US and July 9, 2010 in the UK. Tim Sullivan will write the film, and Mike Mitchell will direct it. The principal cast members will all reprise their roles. It will also be released in 3-D and IMAX 3-D theaters. The plot was announced February 23, 2009.
This movie will be the final film in the Shrek series, following Shrek, Shrek 2 and Shrek the Third despite early allegations by filmmakers to make a fifth film. Like the first three Shrek films, the movie will be significantly based on fairy tale themes. The first trailer was attached to Avatar. A second trailer was shown before Alice in Wonderland.
Shrek (Mike Myers) has become a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away as he used to, Shrek agrees to autograph pitchforks. Longing for the days when he felt like a "real ogre", Shrek is tricked into signing a pact with the smooth-talking deal maker, Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn). Shrek couldn't resist the offer; all he wanted was a day off to relax, and Rumpy had a pretty good deal – all Shrek had to give him to get a day off was a day from his own life. Unfortunately the day that Rumpy decided to take out of Shrek's life was the day that he was born, meaning that, since Shrek was never born, he never existed. Shrek finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where Rumpy has now ascended to king, ogres are hunted, Donkey (Eddie Murphy) is an intellectual who has never met Shrek and fears him, Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) is still alive, Puss (Antonio Banderas) is fat and lazy and Fiona (Cameron Diaz) is a hunting ogre and the leader of a bunch of other hunting ogres. Now, it's up to Shrek find a loophole in the contract to undo all of Rumpelstiltskin's mischief in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world, and reclaiming his One True Love and family, all within twenty-four hours or he'll disappear forever.
