DreamWorks Animation and Paramount have released a bunch of new Shrek Forever After images as part of an “early” look at the film. With a release date of May 21st, I’m a bit surprised they’re releasing so many images this early. But I’m not a marketing guy, and both studios clearly know how to open a movie.
As I have said a few times, I saw the first 30 minutes of Shrek Forever After a few months ago and thought it looked pretty good. And this is coming from someone that did hated the previous two films. Will the fourth installment be good? Can Mike Myers end his run of bad films? We’ll all know next month. Until then, hit the jump to check out the 18 images we were sent:

Synopsis: 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 dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin. Shrek suddenly 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.
Release: May 21, 2010
