    'Shrek the Third' boosts cast

    July 13, 2006

    Keys to the kingdom
    DW's 'Shrek' sequel boosts cast


    Amy Sedaris

    By Sheigh Crabtree
    Hollywood Reporter

    DreamWorks Animation has cast a small medieval kingdom's worth of fairy tale characters to appear in "Shrek the Third."

    The next installment of the smelly ogre's saga, set for release next year, will star an elite, ninja-like strike force of fairy tale princesses voiced by Amy Sedaris as Cinderella, Amy Poehler as Snow White, Maya Rudolph as Rapunzel and Cheri Oteri as Sleeping Beauty.

    Organized by Princess Fiona, the ladies underground resistance movement fends off a coup d'etat by Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) in the land of Far, Far Away.

    Also joining the hit animated comedy's cast are Ian McShane as Captain Hook, John Krasinski as Sir Lancelot and Monty Python veteran Eric Idle as Merlin the magician.

    The film's main roles again will be voiced by Mike Myers (Shrek), Cameron Diaz (Princess Fiona), Eddie Murphy (Donkey) and Antonio Banderas (Puss in Boots). Justin Timberlake will voice King Arthur, aka Artie.

    "Shrek the Third" finds the green ogre married to Princess Fiona, but becoming the next King and Queen of Far, Far Away wasn't part of his plan. When his father-in-law, King Harold (John Cleese), falls ill, it is up to Shrek to find a suitable heir or he will be forced to give up his beloved swamp for the throne. Recruiting Donkey and Puss, Shrek sets out to bring back the rightful heir to the throne, Fiona's rebellious cousin Artie. Back in Far, Far Away, Fiona's jilted Prince Charming storms the city with an army of fairy tale villains to seize the throne. But they have a surprise because Fiona, together with her mother, Queen Lillian (Julie Andrews), has drafted her fellow fairy tale heroines to defend their "happily ever afters." As Shrek, Donkey and Puss work on changing Artie from a royal pain into a future king, Fiona and her band of princesses must stop Prince Charming to ensure that there will be a kingdom left to rule.

    "Shrek the Third" is being directed by Chris Miller, co-directed by Raman Hui, produced by Aron Warner and executive produced by Andrew Adamson and John H. Williams.

    The DWA comedy will be distributed by Paramount Pictures and is set for release May 18.

    I'm stoked to have John Cleese and Eric Idle back in the same movie ... even if it is animated.

    ^ It's the same studio. It's Dreamworks and being distributed by Paramount. Same as the first 2.

    Andrew Adamson (the director of the first 2) is executive producing this once since he directed Chronicles of Narnia and is also directing the 2nd one.

    I heard Michael Palin was the lone hold out in a reunion tour, the pommy b******.


    Disney needs to steal the story writers from Dreamworks. Sure could have used them before Home on the Range came out.

    Hated the first Shrek, tolerated the second one (Puss in Boots saved in for me), but I'm really excited about the third one. Julie Andrews getting a bigger part, Amy Sedaris, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and especially John Krasinski joining the cast are very awesome.

    The one thing to possibly ruin it for me is Justin Timberlake. He doesn't have a distinctive voice at all, and I really don't think he'll come across in an animated film at all.

    1st was great. 2nd had its moments, but overall didn't like it as much as the 1st. 3rd sounds promising.

    I really didn't think they could outdo the first one, then after seeking medical attention from the laughter after Puss coughs up a hairball, I knew that I was wrong. I would love to be wrong again.
