If Smash Mouth’s “All Star” or “I’m a Believer” immediately conjures up images of a green ogre and his lovable sidekick Donkey, this is the episode for you!

Join Ashley and Candy as they revisit the 2001 summer blockbuster “Shrek,” which broke ground not only with its animation techniques but also with its multi-platinum soundtrack and cheeky, irreverent take on our most beloved fairy tales.

What actors were originally chosen to voice Shrek and Fiona, and what circumstances led to their replacement? In what ways did Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy influence the appearance, personality, and gestures of the characters they portrayed? What challenges did the filmmakers face in trying to achieve a more 3-dimensional form of animation– and to set themselves apart from Disney? And why use pop music for a story set in medieval times?

Be sure to catch this fun episode about the original ‘Shrek’– the movie that made us all believers in happily-ever-after.
