About This Quiz

Dreamworks Animation's Shrek film series is one of the highest grossing computer-animated series of all time. With lovable characters and highly-touted voiceovers, the series continues to be a family favorite. Can you name these Shrek movies from a screenshot? It might be harder than you think.

Shrek the Third is still bright and cute but not as fun as previous movies. However, this movie features an amazing soundtrack from Fergie's cover of "Barracuda" to Wings' "Live and Let Die" that accompanied the key scene.

Originally, there were going to be five Shrek movies, but in May 2009, DreamWorks Animation Studio announced that Shrek Forever After, the fourth movie, would also be the last movie in the Shrek series. Intriguing and very funny, Shrek finale is not as forgettable as the third movie, not as coarse as the second, and almost as good as the first.

When Shrek's solitude was shattered by an invasion of fairy tale characters - including blind mice, bad wolf, Pinocchio, and three little homeless pigs we'll see in the following movies - he had no idea that it was just the beginning of his amazing journey.

Shrek the Third lacks the comic energy of the original first film and is not as entertaining as the second one. From the thrills of dragon-slaying and damsel-rescuing, Shrek's problems have been reduced to questions like: Should he be a King of the Kingdom of Far Far Away and is he ready to be a father?

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far far away, there lived a green ogre named Shrek whose precious solitude is suddenly interrupted by an invasion of fairy tale characters. To escape them, he sets on an unforgettable journey, meets an annoying donkey, and saves the princess who has her own dark secrets.

In the beginning of the last movie, we see a totally different Shrek - a domesticated family man, living happily with Princess Fiona, and the happy father of triplets. By chance, he discovered what life in Far Far Away Land would have been like if he had never existed.

It's not your average family cartoon - it's a crazy mix of fairy tales, wicked humor, unusual for kids movie characters, and some jokes only their parents will understand.

"Shrek 2" is great in its own way, but less original and more earthbound. If in the first movie Shrek slayed a dragon and saved the beautiful princess, now he has to meet his new in-laws.

Even thought Shrek the Third is not an animated masterpiece like the first two movies, it's still bright, lively, and irresistibly amusing. At the end, it's hard to remember what was this movie about, but the impressive visuals and our favorite heroes remain the same.

Shrek 2 explores how far Shrek can go in order to make his bride happy. When he finds a diary from Fiona’s childhood that expresses dreams of marrying a handsome prince, he wrongly assumes she’d be better off wed to a non-ogre and does everything he can to become attractive.

Originally, producers wanted Tom Cruise and Leonard DiCaprio for Shrek and also offered Nicolas Cage the part. Cage told in his interviews that he turned down the role just because he didn't want to look like an ogre. Later, when the films were released, Cage realized that "Maybe I should have done it, looking back."

The third movie in the Shrek franchise, Shrek the Third, is all about Shrek's fear of becoming a father and a King. To avoid the job, Shrek, along with his irreplaceable friends Donkey and Puss In Boots, tries to find a suitable King for Far Far Away.

There’s a lot to like in the Shrek series' second feature-length installment: the script is witty, the characters are original and fun, the plot is entertaining and full of family-friendly messages. Just like in the first movie, the animation is superb and the jokes are unforgettable!

Being a brilliant Halloween special, Scared Shrekless is something the whole family is going to enjoy! These funny stories and hilarious scenes, inspired by famous Halloween cliches and scary movies, have something for everyone.

After three big-screen adventures, we see a totally different, domesticated Shrek, who lives a quiet, ordinary life. For Shrek, however, there's just one tiny problem: happily ever after isn't working out like he thought. The most recognizable ogre, now a good husband and happy father, dreams about the good old days, and suddenly his dreams come true.

A modern, hilarious fairy tale with a thrilling quest and a happily-ever-after ending became a real hit in 2001. It inspired three more movies, a Halloween-themed short, a lot of specials, clips, parodies, themed rides, park, and merchandise.

In Shrek Forever After, we see Donkey being forced into cart-pulling duty, fat and lazy Puss in Boots trading his sword for a pink bow, and the mean magician Rumpelstiltskin ruling the Far Far Away Kingdom.

Shrek 2 combines the wit and charm of Shrek, wisdom of Fiona , silliness of Donkey, and adds all the fantastic fairy-tale creatures to the mix. The result? The second masterpiece about a green grumpy ogre and his friends!

Shrek gets in the Halloween spirit by challenging his friends to write the scary stories for a special contest. But before they all know the winner, they have to spend the night in Lord Farquaad's haunted castle. It's going to be a lot of fun! And scary. But just a tiny bit.

Shrek's second adventure is colorful, bright, and entertaining, but it's no "Shrek", the movie so original that you can't really duplicate it. Also, it looks like this movie is intended for a more mature audience - it was rated PG for some crude humor, brief substance reference, and some suggestive content, such as the story of a sexually confused Pinocchio.

While it's not as fresh and original as the first movie, Shrek 2 is still a winner on its own, thanks to great humor, inside jokes, and our favorite fairy tale characters.

The original Shrek movie became the first-ever recipient of the Best Animated Feature Oscar and it's not hard to understand why - a story of an ornery green ogre was so unexpected and fresh, that this modern anti-fairy fairy tale quickly became popular worldwide.

Some critics say that Shrek 2 is a rare example of a sequel being better than the original. A great sequel with Oscar-winning animated success, Shrek 2 is a must-see for all the fans of a grumpy, yet kind, green ogre.

In the third Shrek movie, producers, directors, and even designers did a lot of talking. Just to name a few, producer Aron Warner voiced the Wolf, Director Chris Miller is the voice of the Puppet Master, one of the villains hanging out at the Poison Apple Bar, and Shrek 2 director Conrad Vernon returns in this third adventure… as the voice of the Gingerbread Man.

This short and sweet holiday short features a lot of what made the other films popular in the first place. From the amazing graphics, to unforgettable humor and everything in between, Scared Shrekless is a small masterpiece on its own.

If you loved Duloc, Shrek's swamp, and all the magical creatures that live in Shrek's world, you are definitely going to enjoy this equally fun and entertaining sequel!

Did you ever payed attention to the names of Shrek and Fiona's babies? Shrek and various other characters mention the babies' names throughout the film. These three green babies make their first appearance in the last movie. Fergus is a Scottish name meaning 'Man of strength' - this can be related to the fact that Shrek speaks with a Scottish accent. Felicia is a French name meaning 'Great happiness' and from the movie we know that Fiona always wanted a daughter named Felicia. Farkle is an unusual name, but it could be a reference to a French dice game.

Shrek and his friends get together to tell each other scary Halloween stories. The Gingerbread Man tells how he and a crazy baker made what seemed like the perfect partner. Puss then tells a story that is definitely inspired by "Psycho." But Donkey keeps interrupting the story - forcing Puss to tell what really happened. Finally, Shrek tells a story that is clearly a cute, mild version of "The Exorcist."

Donkey, with his endless asides, humor, and phenomenally thick skin, is as much of a pleasure as he was in the first film, but he has a rival now: Puss in Boots, a charismatic and smart cat voiced by Antonio Banderas.

At the birthday party of his kids, an annoying child keeps pushing Shrek to "do the roar" and when Shrek finally does it, people laugh and applaud him rather than being scared, as in the first movie.

The amount of clothing created for Shrek the Third characters is approximately 10 times the amount created for the first Shrek movie. The physics, the dynamics, and the overall quality of the animation were also greatly improved compared to the original film.

Shrek movies were loosely based on William Steig’s 1990 picture book, Shrek! that he wrote when he was 83 years old. A prolific cartoonist for The New Yorker and a children’s writer known as “king of cartoons,” Steig passed away at the age of 95 in 2003, two years after the release of the first Shrek movie.

If you thought Scared Shrekless is a cheap, run of the mill Halloween episode that exploit the popular franchise, you you couldn't be more wrong. It's a high-quality Halloween TV special where all the hilarious stories are enjoyable, entertaining, and worth seeing.

In the last movie, Shrek is starting to feel overly domestic, missing the old good days. His home is on a coach tour where the tour guide tells about how people used to be afraid of him long ago. People ask him to autograph their pitchforks, which they once used to protect themselves and chase him away.

In addition to the other clues of King Harold being a frog throughout the entire movie, above his and Queen Lillian's bed you can see a giant tapestry of a pond filled with lily pads.

In order to avoid becoming the next King, Shrek finds the most promising and suitable candidate for this position - Fiona's cousin Artie. However, an underachieving Medieval high school slacker, who is also bullied at school, proves to be more of a challenge than they hoped for.

Because computer animation techniques are constantly improving, in Shrek the Third animators were able to add more details in the characters’ expressions (such as subtle wrinkles on their noses) that were not even possible when the first two Shrek movies were made.

Scared Shrekless is a 21-minute Halloween television special, set right after the events of the last movie, Shrek Forever After. For the first time, Eddie Murphy does not reprise his role as Donkey, and is replaced by Dean Edwards.

A brief and lively Halloween "scary tale" is a real treat for the whole family. Inspired by some scary movies for adults, this kids version is actually much better and funnier than anything you watched on Halloween before.

In Shrek Forever After, Rumpel is plotting to get rid of Shrek and become a King by making him sign one of his tricky contacts. He gets Shrek's attention by pretending to be stuck under his carriage. When Shrek saves him, Rumpel offers a ride and an eyeball martini, and of course Shrek just can't refuse...

Before Shrek 2 was released, Dreamworks released a special show called "Shrek 4D." A 3D Shrek movie, it showed Farquad's soul coming back to haunt Shrek and Fiona. In fact, it was originally a plot for Shrek 2, but the book's writer didn't approve it.

In the last Shrek movie, we see that our favorite ogre is now over-domesticated and has lost his roar. In order to feel like a real ogre again, he signs a deal with Rumpelstiltskin.

A few crew members volunteered their pets to serve as reference for some of the Shrek cats in the third movie. The animators also has a special mirrored room at DreamWorks where the animators could “act out” their scenes, while studying their movements, emotions, and facial expressions for reference.

In Scared Shrekless, our favorite characters head to Lord Farquad's haunted castle to see who can stay the night while telling scary Halloween stories. The short is made of three hilarious stories told by Puss, Dinkey, and Shrek himself.

A sweet movie for kids that surprisingly has a PG rating. A perfectly grumpy ogre and his best friend - an annoying and talkative donkey - are back for the new adventures and transformations.

At the end of the series, Shrek finds himself in a rut, missing the days of pure scare-full ogre fun. When shady magician Rumpelstiltskin offers him the chance to return the good old days, Shrek agrees without thinking about the consequences.

In total, there are 82 settings in Shrek the Third. Only 15 of those were re-used from earlier films, which means that 67 are brand new environments created just for the movie.

In Shrek Forever After, Rumpel and Shrek signed a tricky contract that gave Shrek one day as a regular, scary, old style ogre. In return, he casually asked for a day from Shrek's childhood and took the day when Shrek was born.

Featuring the stories that are both creepy and hilarious, along with out favorite characters from the original Shrek movies, Scared Shrekless is a nice short you can watch every Halloween without getting tired of it.
