The film was met with highly favorable reviews like its predecessor.

A sequel, Shrek the Third, was released in May 2007. The film's character Puss in Boots has also received his own series of spin-off media—Puss in Boots (2011), The Adventures of Puss in Boots (2015–2018) and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish (2022)—following his debut.


Daniel (Age 13) - ★★★

"This was an ok film.

Not as good as the original but that’s fine because nothing is.

The plot was decent and my favourite was shrek and my second favourite was Fiona.

My favourite part was the dinner scene because it’s funny when shrek burps."
