More About Shrek Movie Franchisee

It includes four computer-animated films: Shrek (2001), Shrek 2 (2004), Shrek the Third (2007), and Shrek Forever After (2010). A short 4-D film, Shrek 4-D, which originally was a theme park ride, was released in 2003.

The series primarily focuses on Shrek, a bad-tempered but good-hearted ogre, who begrudgingly accepts a quest to rescue a princess, resulting in him finding friends and going on many subsequent adventures in a fairy tale world.

The film takes place in two realms called: Duloc, the Lordship of Lord Farquaad and location of Shrek’s Swap, and Far Far Away – the Kingdom ruled by Fiona’s parents.

These magical lands are filled with different fairy tale characters and enchanted areas like The Poison Apple pub and Sherwood Forest.

Determined to save their home — not to mention his — Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad and sets out to rescue Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) to be Farquaad’s bride. Rescuing the Princess may be small compared to her deep, dark secret.

The United States Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the National Film Registry.

These funny and witty one-liners and quotes from the movie are very interesting and entertaining for fans who love the unique storyline and the amazing friendship the characters share.
