A lot has changed in the last 15 years, especially
for Shrek and his crew. In support of this week's Blu-ray and
DVD release of Shrek, the 15th Anniversary Edition, we wanted to pass
along an official guide to what the beloved characters have been doing
to pass the time. We hope you can share with your readers - they will
be ogre-joyed to learn where these fan favorites are now! :)
15 years after their
first appearance of SHREK and his crew of lovable misfits,
audiences and fans are dying to know,
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
SHREK With three young Ogres
running around the swamp, and his talky pal Donkey constantly popping
up out of nowhere, Shrek was left no choice but to try to find inner
harmony through yoga and meditation. He’s even tried to get
friends to call him by the nickname the Green Swami of the
Swamp, but let’s be honest, every now and then he still rages like
the big old grumpy ogre that we all know and love.
FIONA Fiona spends her free
time as an ambassador for healthy living in Far Far Away. Not
only does the Fierce Ogre Princess bring her martial arts
training classes to local schools, she also has a community garden on
the castle grounds that proudly features Ogre-ganic fruits and
vegetables. These are produce grown using swamp juice to keep
the bugs away instead of pesticides.
Donkey has managed to visit his pal Shrek literally
every single day since they became friends some 15 years ago. This
is quite an accomplishment when you take into consideration that he
also puts on a weekly variety show at The Royal Opera Hall, teaches
tap dancing classes to all the King’s horses, and has been Far Far
Away’s reigning Waffle Eating Champion for 7 years straight!
PINNOCHIO The little wooden puppet
is still pursuing his dream of becoming a “real” boy. He was
recently seen getting treatments from Dr. Knowall, Far Far Away’s
resident plastic surgeon. With his freshly carved nose and maple
syrup lip injections, Pinocchio is really turning heads…even though
his still turns all the way around.
GINGY This sweet little man has
been busy as can be with his new line of cruelty free cookies.
No faces, bodies, or personalities on these sweets, just inanimate
confections with chewy gooey centers. With new stores popping
up on what seems like every other corner of Far Far Away,
successful entrepreneur Gingy is rollin’ in the dough.
