Shrek Plot

Shrek is a solitary, antisocial green ogre who enjoys the isolation of his swamp. After the dwarfish Lord Farquaad of Duloc unwittingly exiles a large number of fairy-tale creatures to Shrek’s swamp, his existence is disrupted. Angry by the intrusion, he decides to pay a visit to Farquaad and demand that they be relocated. He unwillingly permits the chatty Donkey, who was also exiled, to accompany him and lead him to Duloc.

Meanwhile, Farquaad is given Snow White’s Magic Mirror, which advises him that he must marry a princess in order to become a genuine king. Princess Fiona, who is imprisoned in a castle tower guarded by a dragon, is chosen by Farquaad. He organizes a game in which the winner will have the “honor” of rescuing Fiona, as he is unwilling to execute the work himself. During the tournament, Shrek and Donkey arrive and vanquish Farquaad’s knights. Farquaad crowns them champions and orders them to save Fiona. If Shrek succeeds, the fairytale creatures will be transferred, and Farquaad agrees.

When Shrek and Donkey arrive at the castle, Dragon attacks them. After freeing Donkey, Shrek locates Fiona, who is disgusted by his lack of romanticism, and the two depart the castle. Fiona refuses to go to Duloc when Shrek removes his helmet, showing he is an ogre, insisting on seeing Farquaad in person, but Shrek drags her there against her will. Shrek confides in Donkey about his displeasure with being frightened and rejected by others because of his appearance that night, after setting up camp and with Fiona alone in a cave. Fiona overhears and decides to treat Shrek with kindness. When they are attacked the next day by Robin Hood and his Merry Men, Fiona easily dispatches them with martial arts. Fiona impresses Shrek, and the two begin to fall in love.

Fiona seeks refuge in a windmill for the evening while the trio approaches Duloc. Later, Donkey comes on his own and learns Fiona has changed into an ogress. She reveals that she has been cursed since she was a child, and that she has been forced to turn every night after sunset and then change back at morning. Only “real love’s kiss” can break the spell and transform her into “love’s true form,” she says Donkey. Meanwhile, Shrek is about to express his emotions to Fiona when he overhears her calling herself a “ugly beast” and overhears the conversation. Shrek flees in rage, believing Fiona is referring to him, and returns the next morning with Lord Farquaad. Fiona accepts Farquaad’s marriage proposal and requests that they be married before sunset, confused and upset by Shrek’s sudden hostility toward her.

Shrek abandons Donkey and goes to his now-empty swamp, but despite his seclusion, he is unhappy and misses Fiona. Shrek is confronted by Donkey when he arrives to the swamp. During their argument, Donkey reveals that the “ugly beast” Fiona was talking to was someone else, and encourages him to declare his emotions for her before she marries, and the two immediately travel to Duloc thanks to Dragon, whom Donkey had previously met. Just as the wedding is about to end, Shrek appears and tells Fiona that Farquaad is marrying her to become king. As the sun sets and Fiona transforms into an ogress in front of everyone, Shrek realizes what he has overheard.

Farquaad is furious and orders Shrek’s execution and the arrest of Fiona. Farquaad is savagely devoured by Dragon and Donkey. Shrek and Fiona kiss and confess their love for one other. Fiona’s curse is broken, but it turns her into an ogress for the rest of her life, a form she didn’t expect, but Shrek still thinks she’s lovely. They married in the swamp, surrounded by fairy-tale creatures, and then head off on their honeymoon.
