I hate to be predictably sycophantic/snide towards these franchises, but the track records speak for themselves.
May 21st shall mark the premiere of Shrek Forever After, the supposed “final chapter” of the series and one that sends it’s titular hero into a parallel universe where none of the shit in the movies has ever happened! A beloved character is fat now! Rumpelstiltskin is involved (fuck you Disney).
A trailer and teaser poster have debuted online and you can see the latter below. Click on it to see the trailer at Apple Trailers (I’d add a YouTube embed, but they’re all yanks from Apple anyway).
Of course, Puss In Boots is set to happen to us in November of 2011, so don’t get all anxious about Dreamworks’ biggest franchise coming to a close just yet.
