Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, and all the friends we’re accustomed to finding down in the swamp gather round the ogre’s hearth for a heartwarming Christmas celebration.
Okay, not quite. First off, Shrek is no fan of Christmas. Generally speaking, ogres aren’t, apparently. So this first Christmas with Fiona and the triplets is also Shrek’s first Christmas period. It has caught him unawares. But Shrek is nothing if not a good dad and devoted husband, so he sets about creating the perfect holiday for his little family. Look closely and you may notice his decor consists of eyeballs and his roast goose is not, in fact, a goose, or fowl of any kind. He’s an ogre and he’s doing his best.
Of course, Shrek gets more than he bargained for when his whole extended family shows up uninvited – Donkey, Puss In Boots, the blind mice, the three little pigs, the whole gang’s assembled, and in true Shrek fashion, the first they do is throw a dance party, because no Shrek movie is complete without a montage or two set to high-energy, kid-friendly music.
Shrek The Halls is a short, 30 minute holiday special that you can find on Netflix. It’s got nothing new to add to the Shrek cannon, it’s just a happy holiday happening, and it can be happening right now, in your bedroom, in your living room, anywhere you need some holiday cheer that’s fun for the whole family.
