How old is Shrek from Shrek?

Assuming poetic synchronicity is at work and they were both 7 at the time, Shrek is also 23 or 30 when he saves Fiona. This would make him around 30 years old.

Shrek's age was never mentioned in the movie or any of the cartoons, but based on his appearance and what we know about life expectancy for a donkey, here are some possibilities:

He could be anywhere from 23 to 46 years old. The average age is 36 like Fiona.

He could be anywhere from 0 to 47 years old. The average age is 16 like Princess Fiona.

He could be anywhere from 8 to 59 years old. The average age is 27 like Donkey Kong.

He could be anywhere from 9 to 52 years old. The average age is 19 like Puss in Boots.

He could be anywhere from 10 to 50 years old. The average age is 24 like Spike.

He could be anywhere from 11 to 49 years old. The average age is 22 like Gyro.

He could be anywhere from 12 to 48 years old. The average age is 25 like Daffy.

Is Shrek Scottish?

Shrek may be most known for his instantly recognizable Scottish accent, but the character was initially intended to sound completely different. The Dreamworks animated picture, which celebrates its 20th anniversary today (18 May), stars Mike Myers as an ogre compelled to embark on a journey to save Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz).

Myers has described Shrek as a "lovely guy" who just happens to be an ogre. The actor also admits that he's not very intelligent and doesn't know how the character managed to win people over through personality alone. He says, "I think maybe because he's so ugly everyone assumes he's stupid too. But he's not! He's a loving guy who wants to help everyone."

Shrek first appeared in January 1995 in Derek & Danni Lee Russell's comedy film As Good As It Gets, which itself was based on the story by Paul Rudnick. The movie went on to become one of the highest-grossing films of all time with revenues of $467 million (GBP$633m) worldwide (as of August 2016). A sequel was planned immediately after the first film's release but it took years for another installment to materialize.

Of course, the success of Shrek has inspired several other movies about talking animals from different worlds who come together to fight evil.

What was Shrek’s original accent?

Scottish lilt Shrek may be most known for his instantly recognizable Scottish accent, but the character was initially intended to sound completely different.

Myers has said in interviews that he based Shrek's accent on those of British actors Robert Newton and John Mills. He also admits to having watched old English movies like Kind Hearts and Coronets and drawn inspiration from it.

Newton and Mills are both famous for playing Victorian-era gentlemen who end up becoming villains. They often played bad guys who were actually good at heart but had been corrupted by society. This is something that fits perfectly with Shrek's character as he is originally kind-hearted but becomes corrupt after spending all his money on clothes and gadgets.

Shrek first appeared in January 1995 in Scott Miller's cartoon series The New Adventures of Shrek. The first film came out two years later in 1997. It was so successful that there have been three more sequels so far. A fourth movie is set to be released in 2015 starring Andy Serkis in the title role.

Myers has also starred in several other popular comedies including Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone, and The Love Bug.
