Guide Review - Shrek the Third DVD Review
The King of Far Far Away is croaking and it's now time for Shrek to step up and take over his duties. But being King isn't exactly something Shrek's looking forward to so instead of putting on the crown, he sets off to find the only other royal heir - high school student Artie (Justin Timberlake).
Shrek and his loyal animal buddies Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and Puss (Antonio Banderas) hound poor Artie until he gives in and accompanies them back to Far Far Away. However, while the goofy threesome's been gone chasing down the reluctant heir, Prince Charming (boo-hiss) has been extremely busy taking over the land. Meanwhile, it's up to Fiona - who also happens to be planning for impending motherhood - to get with her princess friends and try and rid the kingdom of Charming and his villainous buddies.
The Bonus Features
The Shrek the Third DVD has an above average assortment of bonus features to browse through. For those who love to hear all the inside info, the 'Meet the Cast' featurette is top notch. 'Big Green Goofs' is worth a look as it shows just how wrong CGI can go. There's also a batch of goodies just for kids, including 'Learn to Donkey Dance,' 'How to Be Green,' and 'Merlin's Magic Crystal Ball.'
