Shrek

Shrek is one of the great classics of animation, an essential film for all audiences and that breaks with all the clichés of stories. It’s the first of a trilogy (although a must-have probably only the first) and one of the big hits if you’re looking for Dreamworks movies. Shrek is rude, lonely, rude and surly. But he must go look for Princess Fiona so that the prince can make him live in peace again and away from the fairytale characters who now bother him. Humor, love and pranks in a movie that we can see on almost all streaming platforms today.

In addition, we can see the different continuations of the saga: Shrek 2 and Shrek the Third.

On Amazon Prime Video, on Netflix and on Movistar we can see “Madagascar” to follow the lion Alex and the rest of his friends at the Central Park Zoo in New York.
