"Shrek": From the Swamp to the Screen by John Hopkins
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Based on a children's book by William Steig (who died this past October), Shrek (and its upcoming sequel, Shrek II), are offbeat fairy-tale adventures about a big green ogre, his chattering sidekick Donkey, a feisty princess named Fiona, and a power-hungry ruler named Lord Farquaad. In this book, the four main characters have a chance to tell all - about the trials and tribulations of making the movies, the clash of egos, the scenes that didn't work - in their own words. But the human participants (writers, directors, animators, production designers) have their say too, describing the painstaking process of inventing and animating an imaginary world from scratch. The book will have both an entertaining narrative and a trove of facts and trivia, presented with a wealth of illustrations documenting the films from conception to the screen.
