About the films
Shrek is an anti-social and highly territorial green ogre who loves the solitude of his swamp. His life is interrupted after the short-statured and compensatory Lord Farquaad of Duloc unknowingly exiles a vast number of fairy-tale creatures to Shrek’s swamp. Angered by the intrusion, he decides to visit Farquaad and demand they be moved elsewhere. He reluctantly allows the talkative Donkey to tag along.
Lord Farquaad agrees to vacate the swamp on one condition: Shrek must go on a dangerous quest to retrieve Princess Fiona from a dark castle guarded by a dragon.
Shrek 2 takes place following the events of the first film, with Shrek and Donkey meeting Fiona’s parents as her zealous Fairy Godmother, who wants Fiona to marry her son Prince Charming, plots to destroy Shrek and Fiona’s marriage. Shrek and Donkey team up with a swashbuckling cat named Puss in Boots to foil her plans.
