Shrek Forever After: The Final Chapter


Once upon a time, a long time ago,

a king and queen had a

beautiful daughter named Fiona.

But she was possessed

by a terrible curse.

By day, a lovely princess.

By night, a hideous ogre.

Only true love's kiss

could lift her curse.

So Fiona waited in a tower,

guarded by a dragon, until the day

when her true love would arrive.

But as the days turned into years,

the King and Queen were forced

to resort to more desperate measures.

Whoa, there.

I don't know about this, Lillian.

Fairy Godmother said only true love's

kiss could break Fiona's curse.

I don't trust that woman, Harold.

This may be our last hope.

Besides, he does come

highly recommended by King Midas.

But to put our daughter's life

in the hands of this... person?

He's devious.

He's deceitful. He's, he's...


Mrs. Highness.

How do you do?

Down, Fifi. Get down!

As you can see, everything's in order.

So you'll put an end

to our daughter's curse?

And, in return, you sign the kingdom

of Far Far Away over to me.

- Lillian, this is madness!

- What choice do we have?

Fiona has been locked away

in that tower far too long.

It's not like she's getting any younger.

But to sign over our entire kingdom?

Well, if your kingdom's worth

more to you than your daughter...

Nothing is worth more to us

than our daughter.

Jump, Fifi, jump!

Just sign it and all your problems

will disappear.

Your Highness! The Princess!

She's been saved!

Who saved her?

No one would have guessed

that an ogre named Shrek,

whose roar was feared

throughout the land,

would save the beautiful Princess Fiona.

True love's kiss led to marriage

and ogre babies!

The kingdom of Far Far Away

was finally at peace.

Goody for them!

And they lived happily ever after!

Sir? You're gonna

have to pay for that.

Maybe we could make a deal

for it, little boy?

- Oh, I'm not a real boy.

- Do you want to be?

Nobody needs your deals

anymore, Grumpel Stinkypants!

I wish that ogre was never born!

Wake up, Daddy, wake up!

- Good morning.

- Good morning to you.

Better out than in.

That's my line.

Did my little Fergus make a...

...big, grownup ogre stink?!

Oh, that's diabolical!

And on your left, the lovable lug

that showed us you don't have to

change your undies

to change the world!

I wonder what Shrek's up to in there.

Get in there. Get...

Impossible to put on!

OK, the dragon goes under the bridge,

through the loop...

...and finally, into the castle.

Play date!

Then Shrek kissed the Princess.

She turned into a beautiful ogre

and they lived...


- Ever...

- After.

Look! A shooting star!

So, what did you wish for?

That every day could be like this one.

Come here, you.

Morning, Daddy.


Better out than in.

Did my little Fergus make a...

Cute. Real cute.

This lovable lug taught us

you don't have to change

your undies to change the world!

Play date!

Shrek! The outhouse is clogged up!

She turned into a beautiful ogre

and they lived...

- Happily...

- Ever...


- Daddy, get up!

- Morning.

- Better out than in.

- This lovable lug...

- Play date!

- No!

Outhouse again!

Come on.



- Get up, get up!

- And they lived...

- Happily...

- Ever...



Nice landing, baby.

Hey! Now remember, don't eat the valet.

Happy birthday, nios!

Vamos a la fiesta!

Hey, Shrek, Shrek!

Mr. Shrek, would you

sign our pitchforks?

And our torches?

Oh, man, you used to be so fierce!

Yeah, when you were a real ogre!

A real ogre?

Shrek, it's a sing-along.

You've got to sing along!

- No, thanks.

- Please? I'll be your best friend.

Why does being your best friend entail

me doing everything I don't want to do?

Please, Felicia, not in Daddy's ear.

Excuse me, Mr. Shrek?

Could you do that

ogre roar of yours for my son?

He's a big, big fan.

Do the roar.

You know, I'd rather not.

It's my kids' birthday party.

- Do the roar.

- Honey?

Why don't you go check on the cake?

- Sure.

- And don't forget the candles.

Hold still.

Thanks for the pants, Muffin Man.

I always wanted chaps!

Yee-haw! Giddy up!

- Monsieur Shrek.

- Howdy, Shrek!

Your cake. Voil!

- What is that supposed to be?

- That's Sprinkles the Ogre!

Isn't he cute? He looks just like you.

But happy. It's a party, Shrek.

You gotta cheer up!

I'm in a great mood, actually.

- Oh, I'm gonna lick me a rainbow!

- Donkey!

As long as you're not doing anything,

how about one of those

famous Shrek roars?

- Do the roar.

- Let me set you straight, Butter Pants.

An ogre only roars when he's angry.

You don't want to see me angry, do you?

Do it.

Hold it together. Just hold it together.

Daddy, he's getting away. Do something.

Oh, good.

- What happened to the cake?

- Trust me. It's an improvement.

- You licked it!

- No.

Just because you're an ogre,

doesn't mean you have to eat like one.

Looks like you forgot the candles!

OK, just watch the cake.

I'll go get them.

Watch the cake?

- Where's the cake?!

- We ate the cake.

- Ya.

- What?

No, don't cry.

Hey! I believe you

promised my son a roar.

- Do the roar.

- Roar.

- I don't like it.

- Pigs, we need another cake.

- We ate the other cakes.

- One roar, man.

Hey, everybody!

Shrek's gonna do his famous ogre roar!

Not now, Donkey.

Pigs, are there any cupcakes?

- We ate them, too.

- They have lollipops.

No, I ate them.

- You didn't share?

- Well, you didn't share the croissants!

- Everything's gonna be OK.

- Shrek, what's going on?

- Come on, Shrek, your fans are waiting!

- Do the roar.

We need the cake!

Cake! Cake! Cake!

I love you, Daddy.

Everybody, I have found another cake!

Shrek? Are you OK?

- Unbelievable.

- Tell me about it! Those villagers...

I'm not talking about the villagers,

Shrek. I'm talking about you.

Is this really how you want

to remember the kids' first birthday?

- Oh, great. So this is all my fault?

- Yes. But you know what?

Let's talk about this

after the party, at home.

You mean that roadside

attraction we live in?

Step right up! See the dancing ogre!

Don't worry! He won't bite!

I used to be an ogre.

Now I'm just a jolly green joke!

OK, OK, maybe you're not

the ogre you used to be.

But maybe that's not such a bad thing.

I wouldn't expect you to understand.

It's not like you're a real ogre.

You spent half your life in a palace.

And the other half

locked away in a tower.

Look, all I want is for things to go

back to the way they used to be!

Back when villagers were afraid of me,

and I could take a mud bath in peace.

When I could do what I wanted,

when I wanted to do it!

Back when the world made sense!

You mean back before you

rescued me from the Dragon's Keep?


Shrek, you have

three beautiful children,

a wife who loves you,

friends who adore you.

You have everything.

Why is it the only person

who can't see that is you?

That's just great.

If she thinks I'm gonna

slink back there and apologize,

she's got another thing coming.
