Shrek and her then live happily ever after. In the first rescue scene it is fairly conventional. For example it is set in a castle, there is a dragon living there and princess Fiona is awaiting her rescuer. Many of these features are contained in Snow White and other fairytales.

He changes Bottom, a mechanical, into a donkey and makes Tatania fall in madly in love with him. After a little while he decides to let her see what she was actually in love with and she starts to scream. It’s quite amusing that a fairy could be so evil.

The princess goes to her fairy godmother for help, who advises the princess to ask for the impossible, first a dress like the sky, then a second like the moon, a third like the sun, and then finally for the skin of the treasured Master Donkey, a donkey who excretes gold and keeps the kingdom wealthy. The king manages to grant every request made by his daughter. Finding no other option, the princess runs away, at the advice of her fairy godmother, shrouded in her donkey skin. At this point in the story the connection between this fairy tale and the fairy tale “Cinderella” are clearly seen.

Shrek, an enormous, disgusting green ogre falling in love with a beautiful princess (later turning into a nasty ogre) is a perfect example of a stereotypical fairytale, right?

Also according to Mary Kunimitsu, in fantasy films “There may be characters with magical or supernatural abilities such as witches, wizards, superheroes, mythical creatures, talking animals, and ghosts” (Kunimitsu). In Shrek, there are many of these different characters.
