It started with a loveable ogre...who befriended a talking donkey...and rescued a beautiful princess in the unforgettable story that broke the mold for all animated films to follow. Now comes Shrek Forever After, the hilarious and fitting finale to the record-breaking, Oscar-winning movie phenomenon. Longing for the days when he was a "real ogre," Shrek signs a deal with Rumpelstiltskin to get his roar back - but turns his world upside down in the process. Donkey suddenly can't remember his best friend; Fiona is now a tough warrior princess; and Puss in Boots is one fat cat! Together, they have just 24 hours to reverse the contract and restore happily FOREVER after to close the final chapter.
