Synopsis

Big, green and bad-tempered, Shrek is the perfect ogre but one of the most frightening creatures in the kingdom. When his solitude and cabin in the woods is banished by the evil Lord Fargaad, he does everything he can to put the situation right. Joining forces with a silly and talkative donkey, he is ordered by Fargaad to rescue a beautiful princess named Fiona in exchange for his home. On their epic journey across a fairytale universe there are countless moments of comedy and familiar characters along the way. Since it’s release, Shrek has been considered a modern classic that humorously explores and subverts some of the traditional traits of the fairytale genre.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
