ANIMATION WEEK: Shrek: The Final Chapter movie billboard...

Shrek Forever After movie billboard
Welcome to ANIMATION WEEK here at Daily Billboard where we'll celebrate animated movies and TV shows every day this week.

Was it really 2001 when a big green, grumpy unknown ogre came crashing onto the movie scene and changed the face of animated feature films? The DreamWorks movie made us realise that it wasn't just Disney and Pixar that could make great CGI animation and that classic fairy-tale characters could be given a more grown-up spin to appeal to a broader audience.

Who ever thought Shrek would be so popular to be releasing his fourth movie, Shrek: The Final Chapter or Shrek: Forever After as it's also known, but that's what happens when you have great characters and a good story.

Although this eye-catching billboard has new folklore protagonist Rumpelstiltskin atop Shrek, I feel like there's something or someone missing, and that's my favourite character, 'Donkey'.

This billboard was photographed at the top of La Cienega Boulevard at Sunset Boulevard in L.A. on April 15, 2010.

UPDATED: The movie billboard was also snapped at the corner of Highland and Melrose Avenues on May 7, plus this other billboard showing more of the fairytale cast atop the Hollywood & Highland Center on May 10, 2010.
