Rest easy, folks! The big announcement you've been waiting for has come!

We know the plot of Shrek 3.

When last we left our heroes at the end of Shrek 2, it was revealed that the King (Fiona's father) was, in fact, a frog, and he reverted to his froggy form. Because he is a frog, Shrek and Fiona have assumed the throne and are the rulers of Far, Far Away. Naturally, they don't like this cuz they really want to get back to their little love shack in the swamp. So, the King makes them this deal: go find the next one in line for the throne, and then you can go home. Shrek, Donkey, and Puss in Boots head off to find the heir to the throne, and Fiona stays behind to look after the kingdom in the meantime.

Shrek, Donkey, and Puss in Boots find the next in line: Fiona's cousin Artie. On the quest back to Far, Far Away, our trio of heroes begin teaching Artie how to be a king so he can stop being Artie and become...King Arthur.

Meanwhile, back in the kingdom, Prince Charming (villain from #2) figures that, with Shrek away, he can launch a little coup and take over. So, Fiona rallies all the fairy tale princesses to form the resistance.

It's slated to come out in May 2007. Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, and Antonio Banderas are all coming back, and it was just announced that fromer N'Sync guy (and Cameron Diaz's current boyfriend) Justin Timberlake will be voicing Artie/King Arthur.

As a guy who thought the second one is a mistake, I'm just horrified at this development.
