Obviously "Shrek the Third" will feature voice-work from Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy. And Rupert Everett, Antonio Banderas, John Cleese, and Julie Andrews. And you already knew that Justin Timberlake was on board… But, wait, there’s more! And all of the new cast members are as female as they are funny!
From The Hollywood Reporter: "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."
I know Shrek-bashing is a fun pasttime among the movie geeks, but I liked both of ’em and I think Part 3 is definitely headed in the right direction … even if it is starting to feel like an "SNL" reunion.
