Shrek-themed park to open in New Jersey

BLADE STAFF AND NEWS SERVICES

Shrek might find a home in the swamps of northern New Jersey.

The Hollywood studio that created the green ogre and wisecracking zoo animals of Madagascar said Wednesday it would license its characters, storytelling, and technology for a theme park at a long-stalled and vacant megamall in the Meadowlands.

DreamWorks Animation Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Katzenberg and the mall developer said the indoor theme park 10 miles west of New York City would offer "a unique and innovative family entertainment experience."
