Winner of the first Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature (2002), Shrek sparked a motion picture phenomenon and captured the world’s imagination with…the Greatest Fairy Tale Never Told! Shrek (Mike Myers) goes on a quest to rescue the feisty Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) with the help of his loveable Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and win back the deed to his swamp from scheming Lord Farquaad.

Did You Know?

  • The principal actors never met each other. They all read their parts separately, with a reader feeding them the lines. John Lithgow later admitted that, while he enjoyed playing Lord Farquaad, he was a little disappointed that he never actually worked directly with Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, or Eddie Murphy.
  • Chris Farley was originally cast as Shrek and even recorded almost all of the dialogue. However, after his death, the role was given to fellow Saturday Night Live (1975) performer Mike Myers. Shrek’s “air quotes” in the film is an homage to Farley, whose character Bennett Brauer also used air quotes. A story reel featuring a sample of Farley’s recorded dialogue was leaked to the public in August 2015.
  • Eddie Murphy says the Shrek series is among his best works.
  • Shrek received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
  • The song “All Star” by Smash Mouth, heard in the opening credits, was only a placeholder for test screenings until a new song could be found. But test audiences loved it, and the producers kept it in. When the producers decided to keep “All Star” they decided to let the band perform the last song in the movie, “I’m a Believer.”
