Shrek won the first-ever Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, beating out Monsters Inc. and Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius that year. The film features the voices of Mike Meyers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, and John Lithgow as the main characters. Chris Farley was lined up to voice Shrek, and even recorded voiceover, before he died from a drug overdose in 1997.

Three sequels would follow in the main Shrek series, while the franchise overall would go on to explode with multiple TV series, video games, theme park rides, and countless other merchandising opportunities.

A fifth Shrek movie was originally expected to release in 2019 but that never happened. Universal has not announced any specific plans for further films,
