Once upon a time, in a faraway swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek whose precious solitude is suddenly shattered by an invasion of fairy tale magical creatures, banished from their kingdom by the evil Lord Farquaad. Determined to save their home, not to mention his swamp, Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad and sets out to rescue Princess Fiona to be Farquaad's bride.
