The sequel, Shrek Forever After, was released in 2010.


Stewart - ★★★

"It's ok, the characters and voice cast keep it watchable but the series definitely lost some of its edge by this point. Story and jokes all just a little bland and predictable. Bit of a cash-in. Still easy enough watch if you just need a bit of a brain switch-off."
