Shrek the Third () - Full Cast & Crew - IMDb
The toy repairman who fixes Woody in "Toy Story 2" first appeared in the While Kronk converses with the chef at Mudka's Meat Hut, the Brave Boo also gives Sully a Jessie doll, from "Toy Story," along with the Pixar ball. Empire lists the best animated characters, from CGI, hand drawn His performance makes this more than yer average, "boy-meets-girl, .. Movie(s): Shrek, Shrek 2, Shrek 3, Shrek Forever After, a Christmas . Stroke of genius At the end of Toy Story 2, when Buzz witnesses Jessie's astonishing acrobatics. With Andrew Adamson, Julie Andrews, Kelly Asbury, Antonio Banderas.
The three wander through Far Far away and people are not staring at them weirdly, and he sends the guards to tell Fiona that her human husband wants to see him. She wakes up to looking like her old self and screams. I know that in my Shrek review I said that Fiona was not that pretty and she looks better as an ogre, and that still kind of stands, but she looks a lot better here. Though I do think it is because of the huge improvement in the animation. Fairy Godmother locks Shrek in his room as Charming impersonates the human Shrek which she does not take much into liking hence Fiona has never met Charming and does not know what he looks like.
Godmother tells Shrek to let Fiona go if he loves her, which she does when he looks at her and Charming. The trio go to a bar all sad and such, and overhear Harold who dragged Charming and Godmother to the bar talking about Fiona not warming up to Charming and how he wants out of the deal. Donkey baits them out, and the Fairy Godmother have them arrested.
They go to the muffin man to make a huge gingerbread man. Too many parodies to keep track of…. Shrek and the other make it to the castle with the sacrifice of large Mr. Gingerbread Man, and he stops the kiss from happening. He reveals himself and is sorry for giving Shrek a hard time. Apparently, the last good Shrek film ends here.
After the credits, Donkey is singing about being by himself and Puss asks him to go to some club with him, but then his wife and 6 dronkeys show up and they work their issues. He realizes she was acting weird because she was pregnant. He is not as sarcastic as he was in the first film, but he is still the same Shrek we all fell in love with. His love for Fiona is his biggest driving force in this movie, and he is willing to sacrifice for her, which is a main theme of his arc.
We all know about her being the idealized princess at first, but she starts to be torn between her father and her old world and Shrek and her new world. She becomes an unintentional and unrealized damsel in distress in the end of the film, and I like how her background is focused on in this film.
Donkey is pretty much the same, but he is less annoying and more funny in this film. He becomes jealous of Puss in Boots since him and Shrek automatically clicks to one another. Also, it is revealed that he was the donkey that Jack traded for magic beans, so we learn a bit about his background.
He is better in this film. He is an assassin, but has a heart since he feels bad about almost killing Shrek after realizing he is a good person. He gives his life to Shrek. His cuteness is funny in the way he uses it. Nothing more to say in this film. Queen Lillian is the loving, mellow wife who calms down King Harold and she knows him from the back of her hand.
She is at first disgusted with the fact that Fiona stayed as and married an ogre, but soon accepts it witnessing how much they love one another. King Harold is kind of the stereotypical king at first; controlling, power-hungry, protective, and determined to get what he wants. He is so much this that he is willing to send an assassin to kill off his son-in-law. He eventually overcomes his wrongs with guilt and saves Fiona and also sparing them for his eventual demise.
Fairy Godmother is a delicious villain. She has the charisma, determination, sneakiness, and the evilness to pull it off and it is almost impossible to hate her. She is a great villain and a great business woman. Tom McGrath DreamWorks, between Madagascar and Shrek, developed a habit of creating supporting characters who steal the leads thunder.
While you'd be hard pressed to remember the leads in this zoo adventure, the monkeys and penguins run away with the show - particularly the leader of the Dirty Dozen-style penguins, hijacking tankers like he was born in the Navy SEALs.
Skipper's equal parts unflappable and paranoid, leading his troops with unquestioned authority. They're multi-skilled in combat, tunnel digging, lock-picking - you name it. Not bad for a species without opposable thumbs. OK, so their natural limits sometimes prevent Skipper's plans from working out perfectly, but they never stop trying.
Stroke of genius "Cute 'n' cuddly boys, cute 'n' cuddly" Skipper lulls the intruding humans into a false sense of security. We knew penguins weren't trustworthy! Fun fact Madagascar director Eric Darnell had been working on a film about a Beatles-style quartet of penguins called Rockumentary.
When Madagascar came together he moved them over and turned them into commandos. Aliens Voiced by: Conrad Vernon Other characters in this witty B-movie pastiche are wittier, chattier or have better hair no, not you B. But Insectosaurus is the one who really charms us, despite expressing himself chiefly in unintelligible roars provided by director Conrad Vernon and a fascination for bright, shiny lights.
After all, he's just a little grub who's grown up - waaaay up - before his time, and while he will defend his friends and planet to the hilt, he seems a relatively peaceable sort at heart. Then, of course, there's the fact that he turns into a beautiful Butterflysaurus. One the size of Mount Rushmore, but still a beautiful butterfly. There's some sort of message there.
Stroke of genius The face-off between Insectosaurus and the gigantic alien robot across the Golden Gate Bridge, with the pair bellowing at each other while the other, smaller monsters try to evacuate the civilians caught in the middle. Fun fact As monster fans will have guessed, Insectosaurus is partly based on Mothra, Godzilla's old sparring partner.
The difference is that Insectosaurus is not, as far as we know, psychic or possibly divine. Roger Rabbit Movie s: Charles Fleischer The concept of setting a Looney Tunes-type character in the real world is a bonkers but brilliant one, and this effort from the newly reinvigorated Disney of the late s set them on course for a renaissance. And a lot of that is down to Roger himself - loud, brash, hugely irritating to partner Eddie Valiant but always well-intentioned.
The killer is that Roger isn't stupid; he's capable of cunning and trickery in his attempt to clear himself of murder charges and regain the love of his smokin' hot wife.

And after all, a rabbit with a woman like that on his arm has got to have something serious going for him. Stroke of genius It's Roger's heartbroken reaction to the news that his wife, Jessica, is cheating on him.
Why is he so concerned with the fact that she's playing playground games? We've never been quite sure, but we feel for him nonetheless. Fun fact Charles Fleischer performed Roger's lines on set, off camera, while wearing a full costume including rabbit ears, overalls and gloves. Homer J Simpson Movie s: The Simpsons Movie First Appearance: The Tracey Ullman Show Voiced by: Dan Castellaneta With the hindsight switch very firmly flipped, we can now admit to ourselves, and each other, that The Simpsons Movie really wasn't very much cop.
But it's almost impossible to have a list like this and not include the Simpsons' loveable, doltish, lunkheaded patriarch, even if it's something of a legacy choice, dictated almost entirely by the existence of the TV show. But despite the dearth of classic Simpsons gags, still manages to present the Homer we all know and love, putting him very firmly centre stage as he tries to win back Marge and his family, and prove to Springfield that he's not a monstrous jackass. Stroke of genius OK, it was in the trailer, but it's hard to top classic Homer slapstick, namely the moment when he gets caught - literally - between a rock a giant rock and a hard place a cafe called The Hard Place, complete with giant pointy fork.
Drawn out for just the right amount of time, as Homer swings between the two, getting crushed and stabbed alternately, it's up there with the rakes gag in Cape Feare.
Fun fact The J. Corpse Bride First Appearance: Corpse Bride Voiced by: Helena Bonham Carter This could easily have been an uncomplicated horror, with a young man ensnared by a terrifying deadite obsessed with wedding bells, a Bridezilla with bits falling off. Instead, it became an unusual love story, precisely because Helena Bonham-Carter's Emily is so adorable. Rather than the lurching zombie she might have been, she's tragic, charming and strangely beautiful - yes, even with the blue flesh, skeletal extremities and loosely-attached eye.
The fact that most of the audience consider the nicely wrapped up, happy ending an unhappy one is testament to just how likeable Emily is. Stroke of genius It's the melancholy song that Emily sings when she realises that Victor only proposed by accident and is still in love with Victoria upstairs, while her friends try to reassure her that she's pretty. Fun fact There were 14 different models of Emily and Victor, all based on a stainless steel frame with faces moved by clockwork.
Kung Fu Panda First Appearance: Kung Fu Panda Voiced by: Dustin Hoffman It takes a very light touch to take a venerated martial arts master - the archetype that inspired Yoda, Mr. Miyagi and dozens more - and make him fresh, while satisfying all the demands traditionally associated with the character: Shifu, the kung fu master who teaches Jack Black's Po to be all that he can be in DreamWorks' unexpectedly entertaining adventure, is fresh as can be, thanks largely to Hoffman's playfully bemused line readings, a genuine warmth beneath the wiliness, and a refreshing sparkle to the banter between him and Po.
Their delightful final exchange leaves the movie on a high note, and is the chief reason why we're looking forward to the incoming sequel. Stroke of genius It's got to be the hilarious attempts of the kung-fu master to tutor the enthusiastic but hopelessly inept panda Po in the basics of the martial art. His increasing exasperation and the faltering of that firmly-held calm is a joy to behold.
Fun fact Dustin Hoffman had a clause in his contract allowing him to record additional voice sessions if he was unhappy with his original performance. Monster House First Appearance: Monster House Voiced by: Mitchel Musso A lot of animated heroes are children; a lot more are teenagers young enough for kids to identify with but old enough to have some sort of romance. Monster House, however, puts its three young leads right in the middle, veering wildly from childish enthusiasms one minute to adolescent awkwardness the next.
DJ is the quietest and least assuming of the bunch, between Chowder's loudmouth and Jenny's know-it-all, but he's quietly compelling. Stroke of genius It's a toss-up between DJ's reaction to having a girl in his room, and his later, wiser talk with the previously scary Mr Nebbercracker, counselling him as an equal rather than a child. Still you shouldn't hold that against him. Pinto Colvig When it comes to choosing one of the seven dwarves to go on this list, it really is throw a dart time.
Snow herself is a bit too bland to warrant serious consideration. Dopey aside, Grumpy - long white beard, red nose, perpetually pissed off expression - has the best arc of the dwarves, initially reacting with hostility to the gorgeous princess dumped in their midst, before coming over all conciliatory and rushing to her aid. He's a nice chap, after all. Stroke of genius When Snow White has slipped into a coma - what the dwarves think is death - Grumpy's pissed-off facade crumbles as he pays tribute to her perfectly preserved 'corpse', insisting on leaving his garland of flowers in her sleeping arms.
Maybe she finally pierced his cold exterior. Maybe he thought he had a shot. Either way, there's not a dry eye in the house. Fun fact A fight between Grumpy and Doc was animated, but cut out from the movie. It can be found as an extra on DVD. Carl Fredricksen Movie s: Up Voiced by: Edward Asner Cranky, grumpy, irascible, cantankerous. Carl Fredericksen is all of these things and more, but the genius of Up's lead the first of two characters from their arguable masterpiece to make this list is that we know right from the off why he ended up that way.
And it's not just because he's old. Watching Carl slowly shake off the shackles off loss and hurt over the course of odd gloriously rejuvenating moments is a rare joy, the sort of thing that Pixar seems to specialise in.
Carl impeccably voiced by Asner remains one of the most well rounded and plain human characters in animation history. Stroke of genius Even though it's not as cathartic as the moment when Carl stumbles upon Ellie's scrapbook and decides to move on with his life, and instead merely illustrates why Carl becomes the man he is when we meet him, we have to go for the Married Life montage near the film's beginning.
The most moving, boldly brilliant four-and-a-half minutes of moviemaking we've seen in a long time, it retains the power to provoke tears even now. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Voiced by: Neil Patrick Harris Possibly the most random character on this list, Steve is and there's no easy way of describing this a monkey.
Nothing random about that, admittedly. And those thoughts mostly revolve around eating Gummi Bears, and doing what monkeys do, which is act like children hopped up on sugar and fizzy drinks. The master of the hilarious non sequitur, Steve's every appearance in this underrated gem is gold, and further proof that NPH can do no wrong. Stroke of genius The look of unrestrained, demented triumph on Steve's face near the end as he rips the still-beating heart out of the chest of his nemesis, a giant Gummi Bear, and pops it into his mouth.
Fun fact Steve was the star of his own game on the Cloudy promo website, where he attempted to read your mind. Generally, it worked, as long as you were thinking of potatoes. Spirited Away First Appearance: Spirited Away Voiced by: Rumi Hiragi, Daveigh Chase Miyazaki has a wealth of great characters, from bizarre gods to eccentric spirits and terrifying witches. But it's his heroines who are usually the best, and Spirited Away boasts the best of the lot. Over the course of her adventures Chihiro matures from a spoiled little brat into a mature and courageous young woman, helping others who are worse off than herself and eventually earning her own freedom and that of her enchanted parents.
She also gets bonus points for getting a job - most animated characters are a bunch of benefit-scrounging layabouts. Stroke of genius It's probably the scene where Chihiro has to help clean a terrifying and rather repellent "stink spirit", which is revealed under her ministrations to be a polluted river spirit, poor thing. Fun fact Pixar's John Lasseter is well known to be a Miyazaki fan, but it's mutual: Jay Baruchel Yes, we've gone for Hiccup rather than his adorable dragon Toothless?
Because he's a character we don't see enough of in animation: While the wise-cracking, geeky outsider is familiar in live-action teen movies, he's given a fresh breath of life here amid a town full of Vikings and plagued by dragons, and Hiccup's developing bond with Toothless is one of the most finely drawn friendships ever established in the genre.
Also, his awkward relationship with his father is much better than the average orphan story, with bonus points for the joke about his mother's breastplate.
It's at the end of the film, where Hiccup wakes up in his bed to discover that he's lost his foot in the battle with the enormous dragon.
He stares wordlessly for a moment, but after a single sigh refuses to dwell and - with Toothless' help - gets out of bed to try out his prosthetic. Fun fact The novel's version of the story is almost entirely different: Toothless is very small and brown, there's no giant dragon to fight in the last act and Hiccup remains whole.
To be honest, however, it's not as good. Fantastic Mr Fox First Appearance: Fantastic Mr Fox Voiced by: Eric Chase Anderson One of the few non-star voice actors to appear in Wes Anderson's stop-motion adaptation of Roald Dahl's book, Eric Chase Anderson nevertheless got perhaps the most amusing character in a cast of eccentrics.
He's a nephew of Mr Fox's, but his presence causes no end of grief for Fox's son Ash, who is thoroughly outshone by the polite, meditation-practicing, entirely self-sufficient cousin. While Ash gets the more obviously interesting character arc, Kristofferson's just so amusingly perfect that he keeps stealing the show - and of course he turns out not to be such an obnoxious little nerd after all.
Stroke of genius Beating up the mole who tries to pick on his cousin Ash, first taking off his shoes so that his Kristofferson's mad martial arts skills don't kill him. Fun fact Kristofferson is, as you'd expected, named after legendary singer and Blade star Kris Kristofferson, since Wes Anderson and writer Noah Baumbach are both fans of his work.
Captain Hook Movie s: Peter Pan First Appearance: Hans Conried Maybe it's because Captain Hook started out on stage that he's so darn good at getting us all cheering and yelling at the screen - for the other guy. A villain more adept at sneering you'd look hard to find, and as cold-blooded killers go it's hard to top him.
But he's also a man of culture and some pretentions to finesse, making his all the scarier when he decides to just go for the throat. And it's a testament to this film that, while the character's been played a thousand times, this one feels like the original. Maybe it's that dashing red coat - we do love a man in uniform.
Stroke of genius The gibbering panic that overtakes the otherwise snarling bad guy whenever the sound of ticking comes near.
Fun fact This was the last Disney film that all nine of the legendary animators the Nine Old Men worked on as directing animators. After this, they were spread across different concurrent projects at any given time. Mike Wasowski Movie s: Monsters Inc First Appearance: Monsters Inc Voiced by: Billy Crystal When it comes to Monsters, Inc.
You could go for Boo, arguably the cutest kid in movie history. Or Sulley, John Goodman's lovable walking rug of a monster. Or even Roz, the first evidence that Bob Petersen could do more than work behind the microphone. But it's the refreshing, unforced jollity and decency of Billy Crystal's Mike Wazowski that just about wins out. Endearingly hapless, with a cavalier attitude towards paperwork, the manic wackiness of Wazowski provides the perfect counterbalance to Sulley's more lugubrious nature.
And when he's funny, boy, is he funny. No wonder the dude goes into stand-up by the film's end. Oh, and we should also point out that Wazowski is effectively a walking eyeball just another excuse for the boys at Pixar to show that they can take any object or shape and invest it with emotion and life.
The 50 Best Animated Movie Characters
Stroke of genius The sweetness that's exposed when Wazowski or Googlie Bear, as he might also be known goes on a date with his beloved Celia. It all goes wrong, naturally, but it's nice to see another side to the big goof-eyeball. Fun fact Mike has his own Facebook page. We suspect he gets an assistant to post for him.

Jack Skellington Movie s: The Nightmare Before Christmas Voiced by: Chris Sarandon, Henry Sellick singing Culture clashes have always been dramatic meat for filmmakers, but this is a more imaginative take on it than most.
And Jack Skellington is at the heart of it, good-hearted but profoundly ignorant of what he's messing with. The television show Knights, shown in the third act of the film, is a reference to the crime-centered reality show Copswith Puss's catnip substituting for marijuana and pepper mills substituting for pepper spray.
