In 2001, soon after the original Shrek proved to be a hit, Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, and Cameron Diaz negotiated an upfront payment of $10 million each for voicing a sequel to the film. This pay increase represented a significant rise from the $350,000 salary that each of the three were paid for the first film. According to Jeffrey Katzenberg, the executive producer of Shrek 2 and a co-founder of DreamWorks, who led the negotiations, the payments were probably the highest in the actors' entire careers. Each of the actors were expected to work between 15 and 18 hours in total. The film was produced with a $70 million budget.

It turns out that ogres’ family life resembles the simplest life of an average family, with its own problems. Shrek goes to meet his mother-in-law and father-in-law. Translated to English
A logical continuation that perfectly complemented the first part, which means it had to be! More spectacular, colorful, parody and the duo is joined by Puss in Boots, which means three amigos are in action! And it is in this part that N. Baskov puts on a cardboard crown from McDonald’s Translated to English
The second cartoon has been a favorite for a very long time. The story continues where the original left off. Donkey is great. Although the cat is in the background, you can feel the charisma in this ball of fur. Happy endings are rare in life, but if you are ready to do your best, then everything is in your hands. Like Translated to English
In my opinion, this part is slightly better than the first. Everything is at the same level as in the first one, but brighter and more spectacular. Translated to English
In my opinion, the second part is even more interesting than the first, but I can’t say which is better. The first set the right tone, the second became more adventurous. In general, I love both equally. But I would delay the transformation of Shrek into a man for a threequel or quadriquel, because it’s too exciting. Translated to English
