Super Wacky Trailer for 'Shrek Retold' - A Remake By 200+ Animators
"What are you doing in my swamp?!" Comedy group 3GI has release an official trailer for their upcoming Shrek remake, titled Shrek Retold. This unofficial recreation of the original classic (right?) animated film from 2001 is a scene-for-scene re-telling of the same story. 3GI, self-proclaimed "professional Shrekheads" who also host the annual Shrekfest celebrated in Wisconsin, went out and recruited over 200+ animators and filmmakers to tackle each scene from the film. This trailer gives us a little taste of what to expect and it's totally weird and wacky and creative and fun and twisted. I don't even know what to make of all of this, there's so many different styles and ideas packed into this Shrek Retold trailer. You have to see for yourself.
