Shrek Retold is finally here. The scene-by-scene remake of the first Shrek film dropped last night and is exactly as bizarre as one would imagine.
3GI, who host Shrekfest each year, brought together over 200 storytellers to bring this retelling to life. Every scene was created by a different fan. There’s animation, live action, and every other form in between. Some creators were amateur and others were professional, so the result is a chaotic thing of beauty where no scene is alike.
Grant Dufferin, whose title on the project was the project coordinator, was responsible for stitching the film together.
“I did a little extra credit and made sure it is the exact timing as the actual movie,” he told Wired. “You could watch both at the same time. It was a very enjoyable and challenging puzzle.”
So far, people are loving the movie.
“This is art of the highest form,” one person on Twitter said.

“Just watched the premiere of ‘Shrek Retold’. It was so amazing. Truly astonishing. Loved it! Bravo,” said another person.
“This video is a gift that just keeps on giving. Oh my god,” YouTuber Jacks Films wrote.
The film truly takes the internet’s obsession with Shrek to a new level.
“Shrek Retold is a weird thing. You can hear music that sounds like 80s arcade games, voice-overs that remind me of YouTube videos trying to be strange from 10 years ago, out-of-date computer graphics and weird animation styles,” Scott Wark, a researcher at Warwick University who specializes in memes told Wired. “It layers these different styles together. When people do it more and more, they create new forms of expression.”
I know exactly what I will be doing this weekend.
