"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek..."
Thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty Princess who resists her rescue. Throw in the vertically-challenged Lord Farquaad, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero.
The closest thing they have is an Ogre called Shrek…
