Jim here. Got you a first look at SHREK FOREVER AFTER courtesy of USA Today. Not only that, but we also get a storyline too, and yes - it does seem like this will be the final chapter in the SHREK franchise (believe it, or not).

Rumpelstiltskin is pictured on the right.

From USA Today: "All that was loved about Shrek in the first film is brought to the final film," promises Bill Damaschke, head of creative production at DreamWorks. Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy and Cameron Diaz are back as the voices of Shrek, sidekick Donkey and ogress wife Fiona.

The premise is the Brothers Grimm meet It's a Wonderful Life
: After rescuing a princess, getting hitched and fathering triplets, Shrek is feeling over-domesticated. "He has lost his roar," says director Mike Mitchell (Sky High, Deuce Bigelow: Male Gigolo). "It used to send villagers running away in terror. Now they run to him and ask him to sign their pitchforks and torches." To regain his ogre mojo, he strikes a deal with Rumpelstiltskin, the wee troublemaker who popped up briefly in Shrek 2 and 3.

Of course, the pact goes awry and Shrek must confront what life would be like in Far Far Away if he had never existed. That translates into Donkey being forced into cart-pulling duty, fat and lazy Puss in Boots trading his sword for a pink bow and the underhanded Rumpelstiltskin ruling the kingdom.No Shrek outing would be complete without new characters, and there are a bunch. Comedians Kathy Griffinand Kristin Schaal (Flight of the Conchords) are witches who hunt ogres. On the side of good is an underground resistance group led by Jon Hamm of Mad Men. "He is the best-looking ogre you've ever seen," Mitchell says.

Oh and Paul McCartney is NOT the voice of Rumpelstiltskin as some other sites (IMDB) have led us to believe. Walt Dohrn lends his voice for the role (the film's head of story).

...You know, I can't see this one being the last if it makes boat loads of money (and you know it will). Something tells me that you will see more SHREK in 3D after this :-)
