Behind the waterfall with you, my brown-eyed ogre,

On the Big Board
Position Staff In Brief
39/50 Michael Bentley An unoriginal, mish-mash of a movie is interupted by a couple humorous moments and a few scenes of some really nice animation.
74/214 Max Braden I'd probably rank the three films in their release order. Third is amusing but only picks up in the third act.

Digg Button  
Before Shrek 2 even made it into theaters, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Co. had already fast-tracked Shrek 3 and 4. After the resounding success of the first sequel, it's easy to understand why DreamWorks would be rushing to get the third film in the series to theaters by the 2006 Christmas holiday.

According to Katzenberg, both Shrek 3 and 4 will answer some unresolved issues and then in the fourth and final chapter, it will be revealed how Shrek came to be in his swamp and what happened to him before the events of the first film.

Rumors surrounding the plotline of the third film have Shrek contending with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy are all expected to return, though Antonio Banderas (Puss in Boots) has yet to be signed (based on the popularity of the character, though, it would be a monumental mistake if he is left out of any sequels).

Already onboard to work on the screenplay are the co-writers of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Peter Seaman and Jeffrey Price. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
