Apparently, At Least 200 Filmmakers Think Remaking ‘Shrek’ Shot-For-Shot Is A Good Idea

In a new trailer for an online project called ‘Shrek Retold,’ an all-star group 200 of filmmakers, including animators, sketch artists and vloggers announce their intention to recreate the 2001 DreamWorks hit 'Shrek' shot-for-shot for a “new” film that is sure to bug out anyone who’ll attempt to watch it while high.

Judging by the trailer, the cobbled-together movie looks like it will be something of a trip, blending a variety of styles and mediums of varying quality.

It’s not entirely surprising to see something like this coming about, considering similar things have been attempted before with other popular films, and ‘Shrek’ in particular has become a supreme muse for meme artists all over the internet.

Was is surprising, however, is that it comes shortly after the announcement that ‘Despicable Me’ Producer Chris Meledandri will be helming an official reboot of the film next year. So, I guess we’ll have to wait until 2019 to see who did it better.


After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
