SYNOPSIS

Once upon a time there lived a cynical, no-nonsense ogre named Shrek whose swamp was overrun by annoying fairytale creatures — the usual mice, pigs and wolves that plague storybooks everywhere. In an attempt to save his home, Shrek sets out to confront Lord Farquaad, ruler of Duloc, who has banished all the fairytale misfits from Duloc in order to create his own perfect world. Along the way, Shrek is befriended by a wise-cracking donkey, sent to slay a fire-breathing dragon and save a beautiful princess with a deep, dark secret…just your usual fairytale stuff. In the end, he learns to love and be loved in this irreverent new comedy from the creators of “Antz.”
