About Scared Shrekless:
All your favourite characters are back in this hilarious family comedy, which is set after the events of Shrek Forever After and takes place on Halloween. Shrek and his fairy-tale friends end up in Lord Farquaad’s haunted castle, trading increasingly spooky stories to try to scare each other, with hilarious results. Scared Shrekless is the latest in a series of rib-tickling animated shorts from the creators of Shrek. The Shrek movie series is one of the most popular film series of all time; it follows the story of Shrek, an ogre who used to live a solitary life in a swamp in a fairy-tale kingdom, who finds out through love and friendship that life is better with friends. With his better half and fellow ogre Fiona, best-friend Donkey and a host of other fairy-tale buddies, Shrek gets himself involved in all sorts of comedy capers as he clashes with a number of colourful villains. Featuring the voices of Mike Myers, and Antonio Banderas, Scared Shrekless is a fun family-friendly escapade that will have both kids and parents alike doubled over with laughter.
