Back in May of 2007, on the eve of the third Shrek movie, Cameron Diaz let drop that she was really interested in the fourth movie featuring some kind of environmental theme. “‘That’s something I’ve been on Jeffrey’s (producer Katzenberg) ear about, that the swamp possibly could be in danger,’ she said. Joining Diaz in the green push was also Julie Andrews (who voices the evil Fairy Godmother) who added, “What better way to get a message across than with something that’s so funny?”
Fast-forward three years later and we’re yet again closing in on the release of a fourth Shrek movie. Last week, a new trailer was premiered that teased a bit of what we might be in for. There’s nothing necessarily eco that jump out at us (besides a charred landscape), but the plot revolves around Shrek being cast into an alternate version of Far Far Away by the evil Rumpelstiltskin — so the door’s wide open for all sorts of dimensional madness.
