Shrek is an animated family movie that has turned the classic fairytale formula upside down. Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow), an evil tyrant who reigns over the kingdom of Duloc, is paying a cash reward for people to turn in all the fairytale characters. As a result the fairytale characters have invaded the swamp that is home to Shrek - a reclusive, smelly green ogre. Watch the movie and compare the narrative, characters, events and settings with other more traditional texts from the fairy tale genre.
