New Shrek movie to open the Tribeca Film Festival

Shrek Forever After
The fourth Shrek film is due out in July

The new 3D Shrek movie will open this year's Tribeca Film festival in New York, it has been announced.

Shrek Forever After is the fourth and final film in the series and reunites stars Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas.

The tales of the loveable but grumpy green ogre have made more than $2bn (£1.3bn) worldwide since 2001.

The ninth annual Tribeca festival, originally launched by actor Robert De Niro, begins on 21 April.

In Shrek Forever After, the domesticated ogre is duped into signing a contract which sees him transported to an alternate version of Far Far Away, where he and his wife Fiona have never met.

The remainder of the festival's line up will be announced over the coming weeks.
