Shrek, digitally animated motion picture about an ogre who goes on a quest to save his home. The star-filled voice cast includes Mike Myers as Shrek, the title character, who only wants to be left alone in his swamp. Instead, the diabolical Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) forces all the fairy tale characters in the kingdom onto the ogre’s land. Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad in which the ogre will get his land back if he can rescue Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) from a dragon’s lair for Farquaad. Accompanied by a wise-cracking donkey (Eddie Murphy), Shrek sets out to save the princess. The movie, based on a children’s book by William Steig, won the Academy Award for best animated feature.
