Everyone's favourite grumpy ogre returns to the big screen in this fairytale with a twist, featuring the voices of Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz and John Lithgow.
Shrek, a cynical, no-nonsense ogre whose precious solitude is shattered when his swamp is overrun by annoying fairytale creatures who have been banished by the evil Lord Farquaad. Determined to save their home-not to mention his own-Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad and sets out to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona to be Farquad's bride. Rescuing the Princess from a fire-breathing dragon may prove the least of their problems when the deep, dark secret she has been keeping is revealed.
