About Shrek Forever After – The Movie
When we catch up with Shrek in this 3D fourth instalment of the series, he is living back in the swamp with Fiona and their three babies seemingly leading a happy life. However, below the surface, Shrek is having some doubts about his current situation.
He is an ogre, after all. What is the point of being an ogre if no-one is scared of you? People used to be scared of him and the mere mention of his name would make them run a mile. Nowadays, what with having rescued a beautiful princess, challenged a fire-breathing dragon and saved his in-laws kingdom from evildoers, it seems the villagers are more inclined to ask him for his autograph than to flee in terror.
Shrek misses the old days when he wasn't quite as domesticated as he now finds himself. Realising that he needs to do something about it he sets out to recapture his mojo by making a pact with the smooth-talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin.
However, when this plan hits a snag, Shrek suddenly and mysteriously finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona have never even met.
Not just that but he finds Donkey spending his days hauling carts and Puss in Boots an overweight slob who prefers lounging about than swashbuckling.
Now, Shrek realises he has been foolish wishing for things to be any different than he and Fiona had made them, and it's up to him to undo all he's done in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world back to the way it was and reclaiming his one true love.
