The original Shrek film, which was produced in 2001 by DreamWorks, cleared the way for a new sort of animated picture. Shrek, a grumpy green ogre, reluctantly joins a quest to save a princess with a talking donkey. We’d never seen such an anti-hero take the lead before. Adults and children alike will enjoy the Shrek film franchise, which features clever dialogue, multifaceted characters, and surprising shocks.

While we wait to see if the rumours of a fifth edition are genuine, now is a great opportunity to review the current films and remind yourself how well-written and timeless these flicks are.

A cat belonging to a poor miller’s son devises a brilliant scheme to bring his owner a title, fortune, and marriage.

However, until the king arrives to meet him, his owner has no idea that the cat has told everyone that his master is a marquis rather than a miller’s son. Soon after, the king’s daughter and the miller’s son fall in love, and the monarch is eager to visit the property and castle that this wealthy “marquis” owns.
