The further adventures of the giant green ogre, Shrek, living in the land of Far, Far Away.
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.
Why you care
If you are like me, I’m not sure if you do care. The Shrek franchise has went away from its roots and has become a much darker series for my liking, and I do not let my kids watch any longer. Keep in mind my boys aren’t the target audience for this film, but I can guarantee the soccer moms will be flooding the theaters with 5-8 year olds, which this film won’t be appropriate for.
The undertones are very eerie and adult orientated, much more than the original Shrek movie in 2001. Shrek The Third’s death moments and violent side-stories aren’t appropriate for most kids, and ‘Forever After’ looks to keep up with the same theme.
So I’m sure kids over the age of 10 will enjoy it, the younger kids will have to wait a few years to see ‘Forever After’ in our house.
