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.
Eddie Murphy and Jeffrey Katzenberg have known each other since the beginning of their film careers. They promised that one day, they would do an animated film together, which culminated with this film. Katzenberg even recommended Murphy for the part of Donkey, and no-one else. ... ...
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 Shrek first paints the "Beware Ogre" sign at the beginning, the top left corner is missing from the piece of wood. In the next shot, the top right corner is missing (as if the painting was done on the other side of the wood).
SPOILER: The Ss in the "DreamWorks SKG" logo turn green and pop out ogre-like ears. This hints at Fiona's nightly transformation into an ogre.
