After all of his adventures, Shrek (Mike Myers) has become a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away as he used to, Shrek agrees to autograph pitchforks. Longing for the days when he felt like a “real ogre”, Shrek is tricked into signing a pact with the smooth-talking deal maker, Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn). Shrek couldn’t resist the offer; all he wanted was a day off to relax, to be a real ogre again, and Rumpelstiltskin had a pretty good deal – all Shrek had to give him to get a day off was a day from his own life. Unfortunately, Rumpelstiltskin tricked Shrek and the day he took out of Shrek’s life was the day that he was born-meaning that (since Shrek was never born) he never existed. Shrek finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where Rumpelstiltskin has now ascended to king, ogres are hunted to near-extinction, Donkey (Eddie Murphy) is an intellectual who has never met Shrek and fears him, Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) is fat and lazy- and Fiona (Cameron Diaz) is inexplicably a hunting ogre who never met (and can’t stand) Shrek and is the leader of a band of other hunting ogres. But there’s still hope- if Shrek shares “True Love’s Kiss” with Fiona by the sunrise of the next day, the true timeline will be restored. But Rumplestiltskin has sent out an army of witches to stop him. Shrek must stop Rumplestiltskin in order to return everything to normal.
