After his swamp is filled with magical creatures, Shrek agrees to rescue Princess Fiona for a villainous lord in order to get his land back.
Donkey's appearance was based on Pericles ("Perry"), a miniature Donkey who lives in Barron Par, Palo Alto (California) - right in the neighborhood of the Pacific Data Images/DreamWorks animators.
Once upon a time, there was a lovely princess. But she had an enchantment upon her of a fearful sort, which could only be broken by love's first kiss. She was locked away in a castle guarded by a terrible fire-breathing dragon. Many brave knights ...
When Fiona, Shrek and Donkey camp the first time, you see Fiona eavesdropping from the cave after the sun has set. She wanted to camp for the night to avoid being seen as an ogre, but when the camera zooms in on her face, she is human.
The opening credits are seen around Shrek as he starts his day:
