Shrek Forever After premieres at Tribeca

The first 3D outing for Mike Myers' loveable ogre makes its debut...
Shrek Forever After, the fourth film (but possibly not the last) in the franchise spinning fairy tales in favour of satire, has premiered at New York's Ziegfeld Theatre for the Tribeca Film Festival. SFA is the first entry in the Mike Myers-voiced franchise to be made in 3D. It's released on May 21st and reportedly gives a far larger role to the Puss In Boots character voiced by Antonio Banderas, who proved a debonair hit with audiences in 2004's Shrek 2 and 2007's Shrek the Third.
Larger in every way - the once lithe puss has now become a bloated house-cat, and there's clearly been a lot of easy living to make up for in the intervening three years since Shrek was last on the big screen.
Regulars Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy join Myers and Banderas for the latest saga, which is said to follow an It's A Wonderful LIfe theme, with the big green guy now a father of three and going through a mid-life crisis, and being shown how the world would have turned out if he had never been in it.
The gentle Gingerbread Man of the previous movies is now a kick-boxing warrior too. A lot can change in three years, and the sequel certainly doesn't seem to be picking up directly from Shrek the Third.
