Actually there is going to be a Shrek 4.


Production

Shrek 4 is in its early development stages, to be directed by Mike Mitchell. Josh Klausner is working on the script.

It is expected that Shrek 4 will be released in both regular and 3-D formats, as Dreamworks Animation is planning on releasing all their films in 3-D beginning in 2009.

Plot

Details of the plot have not yet been released, but Cameron Diaz and Julie Andrews, actresses in previous Shrek movies, have requested that Shrek 4 contain an eco-friendly message.

Sequel

According to the book, Shrek: From the Swamp to the Screen, when the first Shrek movie was released, the filmmakers did not announce it would be a four-part series.[citation needed] A spin-off movie featuring Puss in Boots entitled Puss in Boots: The Story of an Ogre Killer is being planned.


I personally liked the first and second one....It was one of the few sequels I enjoyed so obviously I wanted to go and see the third. Even if everyone says it sucks I still like to go and see it. It's just that thing when you see a movie you want to see what happens just like an anime series.

The whole If-America-Was-Intorduced-To-Anime thing is not even worth talking about. America has been exposed to anime a billion times. Some caught on others died.
The onlty reason people watched My Neighbor Totoro was because it was Myazaki movie and because Disney realesed it.
If Disney releases it, Americans watch it.

It's just that half of anime is directed on younger watchers. And cg animations. Well...they all are directed to younger population. That's why you don't like those and that kid above me (fierbabe) goes crazy about anime Simple as that.

Most people here don't care for anime since the shows with the most exposure happen to be crap like Sailor Moon, DBZ, Naruto, and any Monster series, I know they are accessible to kids and others, but they are enough to have permanent shunning of anime formed in the eyes of many.

"The Incredibles" was a pretty good film. But, I assume they didn't include the oldies like "The Seven Samurai" if that can be counted as action

Most anime films are placed under "art films" for most westerners, specifically Americans, because they have a very limited view regarding the limitations of Animation. That's because Americans focus on the animation aspect of Anime, while the Japanese have a broader "film aspect" when producing their anime.

A simple example is how the Americans limit what is the norm in animation. For them, the medium cannot be compared to most movies like the ones you gave as examples, because the themes expressed (e.g. sexual themes, mature content, violence) are just not portrayed in animation (at least generally speaking). In fact, the end product is you have people looking down at anime as another "cartoon". The western culture usually deems cartoons as childish, and not a mass media format for distribution ~ unlike Japan wher Manga comics are sutiable for all ages, and are seen anywhere without anyone being judged for simply reading manga.

In the end, we're looking at Holywood standards placing the say as to what a film should be. To them, anime is not film content, so they give good anime films (e.g. Spirited Away, Grave of the Fireflies, etc.) a special position as an "art film" ~ which of course means that they are to be appreciated as if they were indie films.

Oh, you did not just hate on the Incredibles. That movie is fucking awesome, the CG animation is great, and the underlying themes were just as complex as they are in the best anime out there. And I'd say that applies to basically all of Pixar's work. I hate the trend of shitty all-celebrity-voiced 3D movies, but don't knock on Pixar. Right now, they're making some of the best animated work out there.

Okay, I'm sure or at least I hope most of you realize that creating CG movies/works is ridiculously hard. The people at Pixar are really talented and put a lot of work into what they do. Sure, they have celebrity voice actors and a lot of advertising, but the movies they create are made to be enjoyable by an American audience, as well as audiences around the world.

Anime is no different. Animation is a pretty tough process, and even recent anime series are incorporating CG. So you're kind of contradicting yourself there, although I understand the point you're trying to get across.

Why is computer generated entertainment vastly more popular than anime in North America? Like edsamac mentioned, not many people in the 'west' care for anime at all. In fact, anime has only just become minimally popular in the U.S. To you, it may seem like, movies such as Shrek and Finding Nemo are shit, but that's only your opinion. Fact is, Americans like it. Those movies are commended because they take a lot of effort to make and kids looove them.

Anime or Japanese animation is a form of entertainment that targets all kinds of audiences, while American cartoons mostly only target children, sometimes only even young boys, which may be another reason for why anime isn't really noticed here. And also, whenever anime is dubbed, sometimes a lot of it is cut out or changed because it's not "suitable" for American audiences. North American society is pretty uptight around most subjects, so obviously that cuts out on anime's popularity as well.

Maybe there will come a day when quality anime gets really popular here, but for now, we're stuck with crap like Naruto and Pokemon.
