SHREK Celebrates 20th Anniversary in Movie Theaters Nationwide

Once upon a time in a far away swamp, there lived an ornery ogre named Shrek (Mike Myers) whose precious solitude is suddenly shattered by an invasion of annoying fairy-tale characters. There are blind mice in his food, a big, bad wolf in his bed, three little homeless pigs and more, all banished from their kingdom by the evil Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow).

Determined to save their home-not to mention his own-Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad and sets out to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) to be Farquaad's bride. Accompanying him on his mission is a wisecracking Donkey (Eddie Murphy), who will do anything for Shrek...except shut up. Rescuing the Princess from a fire-breathing dragon may prove the least of their problems when the deep, dark secret she has been keeping is revealed.

In addition to the hilarious and irreverent Academy Award®-winning animated classic feature, audiences will be treated to DreamWorks Animation's acclaimed animated short film, To: Gerard, and the trailer to the studio's breathtaking new animated feature film, Spirit Untamed.

Tickets are available now at or at participating theater box offices. Listed theaters will be updated based on local cinema re-openings, so please check back often. (Theaters and participants are subject to change).
