In the late 1990s, DreamWorks Pictures planned on making a Shrek film with Chris Farley voicing the titular character.


The plot was similar to that of the 2001 film, but with notable differences.

Why It Was Cancelled

  1. The only main reason right now is that Chris Farley died before production was complete.
  2. Mike Myers didn't want to do someone else's version, so he asked for the script to be rewritten and that's where the final version of Shrek was formed.


  • The Chris Farley version was permanently cancelled.
  • After Chris Farley died, Mike Myers finished the rest of the unused dialogue in the Chris Farley version and Cameron Diaz later replaced Janeane Garofalo as the voice of Princess Fiona out of respect of Farley's death and her relationship with Farley.
  • DreamWorks released Shrek in 2001 with Mike Myers as the voice of the title character.
  • In the 2010s, Chris Farley's voice recordings surfaced.
  • Amblimation closed in 1997 and production moved to DreamWorks in 1998.
