Shrek Forever After is one of those sequels that still has audiences interested. The title has everyone speculating that this will be the last Shrek movie made, but when there are still people coming out to watch the film there is still a chance for more Shrek movies to be made.

During its first 3 weeks it grossed $188,602,643 in domestic sales; internationally it grossed $255,752,942 worldwide.

Eddie Murphy kicked off the New Year by getting married to fiancée Tracey Edmonds on an island near Bora Bora. Murphy was a very popular actor of the 80’s and regained popularity with the “Shrek” series of movies. He was also nominated in 2007 for a best supporting actor Oscar for the movie “Dream Girls.”
I know that Shrek 3 just left the theaters, but Shrek 4 is expected to released in May 2010. That is over 2 years from now. For those that gasp and think that is enough Shrek, the box office sales prove that people have not had enough Shrek. This one those animated movies that keep on going and going. We have already seen Shrek get married to Fionna, Shrek has met the in-laws, Shrek and Fionna have had kids. It will be interesting what Shrek 4 has in store for audiences.
Shrek helped ABC celebrate the holiday season early with the premiere of Shrek the Halls on ABC on November 28th.
The 30 minute film was about Shrek spending Christmas with his family and of course it would not be to the true Shrek theme if Donkey and Pus in Boots did not joining the fun.
Hopefully ABC will air the special again for those that missed Shrek the Halls the first time around.
You can see the full story of Shrek, Fiona, and Donkey and how it began and how they all formed their own familes.
