Shrek will have Walt Disney turning in his cryogenic freeze tank. This truly subversive animated film takes pot shots at fairytale mythology, while singling out Uncle Walt's beloved Snow White, Cinderella, Pinocchio, et al. Under the guise of a quest to rescue a princess from a dragon undertaken by the eponymous green ogre (which kids will love), Shrek also ruthlessly pillages corporate Disney, satirising its theme parks and executives. And who's behind all this? Producer Jeffrey Katzenberg of Disney rival studio DreamWorks, also formerly head of, yep, Disney.
