Information about Shrek 2

Shrek (5 walls) 2, released in the United States on May 19, 2004 (15 years ago), is the Academy Award nominated sequel to the 2001 (18 years ago) computer-animated DreamWorks pictures (wallpaper) movie Shrek (5 walls) in the Shrek (5 walls) series. In Apr. 2004 (15 years ago) the movie was selected for competition at the 2004 (15 years ago) Cannes movie Festival. The movie is notable for being the first Dreamworks movie to not have the normal logo and the first to have the Dreamworks Animation SKG logo.

Shrek (5 walls) 2 scored the fourth largest three day opening weekend in US history, as well as the largest opening for an animated movie until May 18, 2007 (12 years ago), when it was eclipsed by its sequel Shrek (5 walls) the Third. As of 2008 (11 years ago), it is the inflation-adjusted 30th highest-grossing movie of all time in the U.S.. It went on to be the highest grossing movie of 2004 (15 years ago). The associated soundtrack reached the top ten of the Billboard 200. It is also the seventh highest ticket selling animated movie of all time. It is, as well, the highest-grossing fully-animated movie of all time.

This second movie was shown on the Shrek (5 walls) 2/The Ballad of Little Joe DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) edition.

Plot

When Shrek (5 walls) (voiced by Mike Myers) and Fiona (voiced by Cameron Diaz (31 walls)) come back from their honeymoon, they find an invitation to a royal ball with Fiona's parents to celebrate their marriage, an event Shrek (5 walls) is reluctant to participate in. Fiona talks him into it, and along with Donkey (voiced by Eddie Murphy), they travel to the kingdom of Far Far Away. They meet Fiona's parents, King Harold and Queen Lillian (voiced by John Cleese and Julie Andrews), who are surprised and repulsed by Fiona's choice of husband, since they had arranged that Prince Charming rescue her from the castle but now the see that her husband is an ogre.

At a shared meal, Shrek (5 walls) and Harold get into a heated argument over how Shrek (5 walls) and Fiona will raise their family, and Fiona, disgusted at Shrek's behavior, locks herself away in her room that evening, where she meets her Fairy Godmother (voiced by Jennifer Saunders), who is also surprised at Fiona's new looks. Shrek (5 walls) worries that he has lost his true love, particularly after finding her childhood diary and reading that she was once infatuated with Prince Charming (voiced by Rupert Everett).

King Harold is accosted by the Fairy Godmother and Charming, her son. The two retell the Prince's adventures and how he overcame many obstacles and climbed a high tower in order to rescue her finding instead a crossdressing wolf. They reprimand Harold for breaking an old promise that Charming would be able to marry Fiona and demand that he find a way to get rid of Shrek. Harold arranges for Shrek (5 walls) and Donkey to join him on a fictitious hunting trip, which really is a trap to lure the two into the hands of an assassin, Puss in Boots (voiced by Antonio Banderas).

When Fiona realizes that Shrek (5 walls) left she asks her father for help but he replies that he always wanted the best for her and that she should better think about what is the best for her, too. Puss is unable to defeat Shrek (5 walls) and, revealing that he was paid by Harold, asks to come along as a way to make amends. The three sneak into the Fairy Godmother's potion factory and steal a "Happily Ever After" potion that Shrek (5 walls) believes will restore Fiona's love for him.

Shrek (5 walls) and Donkey both drink the potion and fall into a deep sleep, awakening the next morning to discover its effects: Shrek (5 walls) is now a handsome human, while Donkey has turned into a stallion. In order to make the change permanent, Shrek (5 walls) must kiss Fiona by midnight. He, Donkey, and Puss return to the castle to discover that the potion has also transformed Fiona back into her former, human self. However, the Fairy Godmother, having learned of the potion's theft, intercepts Shrek (5 walls) and sends Charming to pose as him and win her love. At the Fairy Godmother's urging, Shrek (5 walls) leaves the castle, believing that the best way to make Fiona happy is to let her go.

To ensure that Fiona falls in love with Charming, the Fairy Godmother gives Harold a love potion to put into Fiona's tea. But Harold replies that it's not possible to make his daughter fall in love in this way. This exchange is overheard by Shrek (5 walls), Donkey, and Puss, who are soon arrested by the royal guards and thrown into a dungeon. While the royal ball begins, several of Shrek's friends band together to free the trio and create a gigantic gingerbread man (whose name is Mongo), which breaks through the castle's defenses so Shrek (5 walls) can stop Charming from kissing Fiona. He is too late to stop them; instead of falling in love with Charming, though, Fiona knocks him out with a headbutt. Harold reveals that he never gave Fiona the love potion, whereupon the Fairy Godmother attacks Shrek. In the ensuing melee, a spell from her wand, presumably to kill Shrek (5 walls), rebounds off Harold's armor, when he commits self-sacrifice to save Shrek (5 walls), and disintegrates her; it also returns Harold to his true form, that of the Frog Prince. He had used the Happily Ever After potion years ago in order to marry Lillian, but she tells him that she loves him regardless of his appearance.

As the clock strikes midnight, Shrek (5 walls) and Fiona let the potion's effects wear off and they revert to their ogre selves, while Donkey changes back as well. Harold gives his blessing to the marriage and apologizes for his earlier behavior, and the party resumes as the credits begin. They are interrupted by a brief after-party scene in which the Dragon, who had romanced Donkey in the first movie, arrives and reveals that they now have several dragon-donkey hybrid, or "dronkey", babies.
