When it was launched, the film was the first Academy Award winner for the Best Animated Feature, was the number one highest grossing animated film and the number three highest grossing film. Still today, three of the Shrek films are in the Top 20 Highest Grossing Animated Films of all time.

According to a press release: "Shrek The Musical brings the hilarious story of the green ogre to life on the stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre - not a handsome prince - shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a short temper, a cookie with attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand … and his name is Shrek."
