Shrek the Third reunites us with the much-loved characters from the blockbusters Shrek (over $260 million domestic box office) and Shrek 2 (over $430 million domestic box office!).
Being king isn't for everyone - especially if you're a prickly ogre who smells like the shallow end of a swamp. When Shrek married Fiona, the last thing he wanted was to rule Far Far Away, but when his frogger-in-law, King Harold, suddenly croaks, Shrek is quickly fitted for the crown. Now, unless the reluctant would-be king can find a suitable replacement, he'll be royally screwed for the rest of his days. As if Shrek didn't have enough on his plate, Princess Fiona has another little surprise on the way. With his head spinning and his belly in knots, Shrek sets off on a quest to find the only other possible heir to the throne, Fiona's long-lost cousin Artie, an underachieving medieval high schooler. While the ogre is away, his old nemesis Prince Charming rears his handsome head and returns to the kingdom of Far Far Away with redemption on his shallow little mind. Even with Donkey and the ever-so-suave Puss in Boots by their side, it's going to take an ogre-sized effort - and a whole lot of help from Fiona and her band of princesses - for Shrek and Artie to save the day and find their own "Happily Ever After."
Shrek the Third brings back the inimitable voices of Mike Myers as Shrek, Eddie Murphy as Donkey, Cameron Diaz as Princess Fiona, Antonio Banderas as Puss In Boots, Julie Andrews and John Cleese as Queen Lillian and King Harold, and Rupert Everett as Prince Charming.
Joining the stellar voice cast are: Grammy Award-winning singer and actor Justin Timberlake as Artie, the king-in-waiting; Eric Idle of Monty Python fame as Merlin the magician; the "Saturday Night Live" trio Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph and alumna Cheri Oteri as Snow White, Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty respectively; and talk show hosts Larry King as the ugly stepsister Doris, and Regis Philbin as Mabel, the other ugly stepsister.
Returning for this third chapter is composer Harry Gregson-Williams, who contributes an enchanting score of wonder, magic, excitement and fun.
