DreamWorks Animation has provided us with the latest poster for Shrek Forever After.. Check it below...
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.
Also, in a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Dreamworks Animation is presently in the process of converting the first three films in the Shrek franchise to the stereo format for a 3D Blu-ray Disc release. Shrek Forever After, the fourth film, comes to theaters May 21.
The announcement came this Wednesday at the NAB convention, from DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg.
"Our movies exist in digital files to begin with. To go back and rebuild to a quality 3D experience is not inexpensive, but we are about to achieve a pretty high quality result."
The makers of the original films are working closely with the DreamWorks Animation team that is handling the stereo process.
"I think our product will be used to showcase what 3D in the home can offer in terms of the highest quality possible experience," Katzenberg said of the home entertainment release plan.
"They are not going to do anything to diminish the importance of those films." He stated.
The price-tag of converting the Shrek films is $20 million per film and it takes 18 months to accomplish.
