200-pound Shrek statue missing in Massachusetts

A unique tribute to Shrek from Dreamworks has disappeared – and like an onion, the mystery turns out to be layered. According to police statements in Hatfield, Massachusetts, a 200-pound cement statue of Shrek, the titular ogre character from the animated franchise, has been reported missing. The statue previously stood on the city’s Mountain Road and is considered an “iconic” part of the community. The statue’s owner reportedly told police that while the statue is worth about $500, it is “priceless” to him.

“It’s not something that can be moved easily,” a police spokesman told Boston.com. “There are clear signs he didn’t go voluntarily… The owner is devastated that he’s gone and would really like him to come back.”

Comes a new one Shrek movie?

Shrek recently made headlines in a different way thanks to the recent release of Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. That movie dropped a major tease of Puss potentially reuniting with his “old friends” in the kingdom of Far Far Away, and while a fifth Shrek movie is yet to be officially confirmed, fans are definitely excited about the possibility.

“I’ve been with this cat for almost 20 years,” Cat in boots explained star Antonio Banderas in an interview late last year. “The first time I did that Cat in boots, I worked on Broadway, so I did my first session there. I’ve made five movies now. There will probably be another one, and Shrek will probably come back.”

Why do people like Shrek?

As the franchise’s original director, Vicky Jenson, revealed to Comicbook.com in 2021, Shrek’s accidental success came as nothing short of a surprise.

“It was sort of a parody of these kinds of movies, animated fairy tales, and the only one doing that at the time was Disney over the years,” Jenson explains. “The Disney model was still very reverent, and very ambitious and inspiring and the musicals were composed for the movie, so you would never drop this indie influence of existing songs for score, to set a mood. So no one, as far as I know, had done that in an animated movie and relied on that to hit the key emotional moments in the movie the way a live-action movie would And then the tone, the deferentially irreverent humor, was also kind of different. himself too serious but let real feelings come through at the same time. Shrek used humor to keep everyone away but he had a broken heart and when he revealed it to Donkey you felt it. So yeah, finding the balance, it was falling and get up. That’s the advantage of animation.”
