Another day, another trailer for a forthcoming release.  Today sees DreamWorks Animation unveil the new trailer for the fourth outing of their franchise green ogre, Shrek Forever After.

All the regular characters and cast are back in place with some new fairytale characters along for the ride. The key new character is Rumpelstiltskin, with whom Shrek makes a bargain to enjoy one last day as an ogre without any burdens of responsibility. Old Rumpy curries the contract in his favour and Shrek must confront what life would be like in Far Far Away if he had never existed.

The trailer looks like this could be a fresh take on the franchise which became increasing more stale after the initial fantastic first movie. Let’s just hope that the story matches the animation when this is released May 21st.
