Shrek, everyone’s favourite ogre and star of one of the most successful film franchises of all time, comes to the small screen this Christmas in his first festive special which gets its UK premiere on BBC One.
‘Shrek The Halls’ finds Shrek planning to finally sit back, relax and enjoy his happily ever after with his new family when the most joyous of all holidays arrives.
It’s Christmas Eve, and everyone is filled with holiday cheer, except for Shrek. He isn’t exactly the picture of yuletide joy, but for the sake of Fiona and the kids, he tries to get into the spirit of things as only an ogre can.
Unfortunately, everyone seems to have their own ideas about what Christmas is all about, so when Donkey, Puss In Boots, the Gingerbread Man and the whole gang try to join in on the fun, Shrek’s plans for a cosy family celebration end up spiralling into one truly unforgettable Christmas.
Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas, all return to voice the characters they created and continue to bring to life in the worldwide hit trilogy of Shrek films.
Monday 24 December on BBC One.
