About ‘Shrek’ (2001)
'Shrek' is a computer-animated fantasy comedy film released in 2001 that is partially based on William Steig's 1990 fairy tale picture book of the same name.
The film mocks other fairy tale adaptations, with a focus on Disney animated films. The plot follows Shrek (Myers), an ogre who discovers his swamp has been overrun by fairy tale creatures who have been banished by the wicked Lord Farquaad (Lithgow), who is vying for the throne. Farquaad agrees to let Shrek back into his swamp in exchange for rescuing Princess Fiona (Diaz), whom Farquaad plans to marry. Shrek sets out on his quest with the help of Donkey (Murphy), but he soon falls in love with the princess, who is harboring a secret that will change his life forever.
It stars Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, and John Lithgow as the primary characters and is directed by Andrew Adamson and Vicky Jenson in their directorial debut.
