Did anybody wonder why Rumpelstiltskin from Shrek The Third was transformed into a different character in Shrek After Forever? I'm a die-hard fan since 2001, I notice everything ;) I tried to find some info, but unfortunately found nothing. Was it just a mistake? Silly blooper? Or they knew about it and created a character for a reason? There are alot of creatures from fairy-tales, they could choose anyone, but they used the one they had before who looked different and had no connection with what Rumpelstiltskin was connected with in Shrek After Forever. I'm curious what creators could say about it :D

And here is he, mr. Rumpelstiltskin from Shrek The Third. They called him name twice in the movie. If they didn't do, no one would never wondered who that tiny guy was, but they did.

Huh, I didn't notice that! I guess they were just trying to come up with a concept for the next movie and didn't mind changing the character because he wasn't a main one? I'm not sure. I'm kind of weirded out now. o_o;

It's like how Alex in Madagascar randomly had a birth mark in the second movie. It's a neat addition, but it bothers me because it was randomly added, but apparently he had it since birth? *blink*
Yeah, probably they thought that character would fit their new plot and didn't mind that it was on screens twice for some seconds with a different look :D
