DreamWorks and Paramount just sent us pictures of the character posters for the highly anticipated animated sequel, Shrek Forever After. There's six of them featuring Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots, Rumpelstiltskin, and Gingy. My favorite one is the angry Gingy riding a lion-shaped cookie carrying a lollipop sickle. Very cool. You can check them all out together right after the jump.
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.
Shrek Forever After was directed by Mike Mitchell and stars Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, and Antonio Banderas.
Look for it in theaters on May 21st.
