Shrek was a surprise blockbuster when it came out in 2001. The animated movie intends to parody fairy tale stories and does so in a charming manner. It became a box office hit due to its well-written storyline, memorable characters, perfect voice acting, and humor. However, its strength is in its message of friendship and romance beyond the beauty. Since it first dominated theatres, it has become a must-see movie and a staple for animation lovers.
Shrek is an undeniable pop culture phenomenon. Due to its popularity, it has aged like fine wine and more people are learning to appreciate it. It is appealing to both children and adults. Many grew up watching it and they in turn are introducing it to the young ones. It also is a common topic among videos on social media sites. Due to all of this, the movie had more sequels and it also proliferated other forms of media.
Among the reiterations of Shrek is a musical, which premiered in 2008. Shrek The Musical is a direct adaptation of the beloved movie. The music was made by Jeanine Tesori, and the lyrics and book were created by David Lindsay-Abaire.
