A mean lord exiles fairytale creatures to the swamp of a grumpy ogre, who must go on a quest and rescue a princess for the lord in order to get his land back.
The whole animation team from Antz (1998), DreamWorks' first animated movie, were recruited to work on Shrek.
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 ...
In this film it is implied Shrek lives alone because of his looks and the fact he is an ogre which frightens the villagers and this seems to upset him. However in Forever After it is the exact opposite where Shrek now wants to be feared again. It is possible Shrek simply got used to being feared by the villagers in this film and that his life was better living alone.
SPOILER: The Ss in the DreamWorks logo transform into ogre form. This hints at Fiona's nightly transformation into an ogre.
In the version showed in Cinecanal Latina, there are no actors names at the beginning. The start of the movie is the same but in the sequences where the names are displayed, they are not. You just see the water, or the worms, etc.
