Rumpelstiltskin stars in 'Shrek' poster: Who does he look like to you?
You know what’s better than a parfait? Knowing the release of Shrek Forever After is just a little more than a month away. And because the film is headed to our multiplexes May 21, Dreamworks has begun rolling out images from the flick to tease our ogre-loving selves. (Well, my self actually loves the Gingerbread Man more, but you get my point.)
The fire-topped character in this poster is Rumpelstiltskin, the Brothers Grimm character who hated the process of adoption, so decided to exchange his straw-spun gold for the king’s daughter’s first-born. I’m guessing the reason his hair is so big is because it holds the knowledge of how to spell his name without spell-check. But who do you think he looks like? One of my editors says Yahoo Serious, but I think he looks more like one of the Troll dolls that’s currently living next to a stack of naked Barbies in a crate in my garage at home. All he’s missing is a belly jewel!
What say you, PopWatchers?
