Shrek Forever After and Collection Blu-ray in December

Posted October 8, 2010 08:29 AM by Juan Calonge

ParamountParamount Home Entertainment has announced the Dreamworks Animation movie Shrek Forever After for Blu-ray release on December 7. On the same date, the studio will also release Shrek: The Whole Story, a gift set including all four Shrek movies.

Special features on Shrek Forever After include a "12 Days of Christmas" pop-up book, deleted scenes, interactive games, a preview of "Shrek the Musical" and an insider's look at the film.

For a limited time, both Shrek Forever After and Shrek: The Whole Story will also include a new holiday program, Donkey's Christmas Shrektacular, featuring all the characters from the franchise singing classic holiday songs with Shrek-ized lyrics, as well as the "Shrek's Yule Log" - a virtual fireplace with appearances by more than 25 Shrek characters.

At the moment the studio has not revealed any plans to release Shrek or Shrek 2 on Blu-ray separately. Shrek the Third was released on Blu-ray in September 2008.

A 3D Blu-ray edition of the movie will be offered exclusively to buyers of Samsung 3D hardware (see Blu-ray.com, September 17).

It's about time the first 2 movies got released. Yeah, people not planning to buy the whole set will apparently have to wait for individual releases, which sucks. But at least we know they'll inevitably be coming now. I'll just get the set since I'm a sucker for complete franchises. (Yep, I'm the guy who buys all those direct-to-video sequels out there. I'm weak.)

Didn't see the last one in theaters, so I guess I'll have to get the complete set, even though I could do without Shrek the Turd.

While usually the Dreamworks animation releases are overshadowed by the yearly Pixar offering, this fourth Shrek outing will now have to contend with being that third animated movie of summer 2010 (after the amazing Despicable Me). Personally, I barely enjoyed Shrek: The Final Chapter (saying it's better than the third one is not exactly a good thing). Now that the Shrek franchise has been milked dry, hopefully Dreamworks will focus on more original fare (How to Train Your Dragon).

I was surprised Shrek 4 was as good as it was. The first trailer they released was rancid. I found myself really enjoying it in theaters.

Samsung, we bought your 3DTVs, let us buy the Shrek films from you on BD3D. It seems only fair.

I've purposly held off picking up shrek the third because I knew there was going to be a set down the road

I kinda dig these movies, the first one is still one of the best of all the CGI cartoons but I never got around to seeing the fourth one yet

While I enjoyed Shrek 4 it was painfully obvious watching a 2D showing that a lot of the movie was designed just for 3D "effect". The entire witches broom chase sequence felt pointless and really unnecessary in 2D.

Been waiting for 1 & 2 for a long time. Shrek the 3rd sucked. I haven't seen Forever After yet but I just hope it's better than 3. I guess I'll have to get the whole set anyway.

You know, studios think bundling movies into an expensive box set encourages people to deal with 2 or 3 crappy movies, just for the one they like...but really it only encourages people to download the 1 good movie instead.

Personally I didn't find Shrek the Third all that bad. And I for one and glad Shrek the Halls wasn't included as for me it was absolutely horrid. Not to mention, I wouldn't want a fifth show added to the collection thus making the pack even more expensive.

So Shrek the 3rd becomes a paperweight since 1 and 2 won't be avail separately and the option is to get the whole collection and effectively have a duplicate of the 3rd - maybe there's a children's hospital or library that wants a copy. Great job Dreamworks, good thinking. Way to alienate your buying audience.

Shrek the Halls - is that included? If not, more kudos for Dreamworks. Can't they get anything right? Why the slow trickle of catalog releases onto blu-ray?

@SethRex, the Shrek films have ALWAYS been available in widescreen on DVD. I specifically remember the first film had the film in 1.33:1 on disc 1 and 1.78:1 on disc 2. Don't take my word for it, search Amazon.

If you screwed up and got the wrong version, that's on you.

I wish they would've put Shrek the Halls in this collection. I saw it in HD when it first aired, and the DVD just doesn't do it justice.

@kevin87 - No, five films were planned, but the fifth was later cancelled and Shrek Forever After is the final part of the story. There is, however, a spin-off featuring just Puss in Boots coming out in 2011.

Yes finally, Ive been waiting to hear when the shrek series would be coming to blu-ray. I actually really liked Shrek the final chapter as much as the first one and slightly better than Shrek 2. Shrek 4 and despicable Me were my favorite movies of the summer.

I plan to buy the complete set for sure. I'm glad I never did buy the 3rd one on Blu-Ray (which IMO was the worst of the series, the 4th one was surprisingly better than I expected it to be), now I can just get the whole set. I do hope each movie comes in it's own case, but I'll buy it regardless of the type of packaging. Right now the preorder price on Amazon is $55.99 for the set, which is really good for 4 movies.

I do hope that the "Shrek the Halls" Christmas Special (which was released by itself on DVD) is included in this set as well. It wouldn't quite be "complete" without it, and considering that they are including some limited time Christmas related extras on it, it would be kind of silly not to include that special.

Only interested in Shrek. Everything after that film went downhill fast -- and so until they release the individuals I'm not going to splurge.

I'd usually just bite the bullet if I liked 3/4 of the films in these packs -- but IMHO only the first is rewatchable for me... not interested.

Try again later Dreamworks.

pretty good price $45, but I will wait till it's cheaper, the "problem" with Shrek 1 is that it is so watchable in any medium, tv or regular DVD that it's watched a lot and the "need" to want it in HD is lessened....does that make any sense?

I'll probably get the fourth one as a combo and then get the box set once it's cheaper. I would rather own only the first two movies on blu-ray.
