This was Eddie Murphy's first animated film to be released by Paramount Pictures, the studio with which he had an exclusive contract early in his career. But in 2014, Paramount sold its distribution rights to the pre-2013 DreamWorks Animation theatrical library back to that company, who then licensed these rights to the company's current partner, 20th Century Fox, whose best-known association with Murphy is the Dr. Dolittle franchise.

my daughter really liked it; I was pleasantly surprised
I took my daughter, who is eight years old, to see this movie with a friend and she liked it a lot. she thought it was funny. Even though she saw the first two, she doesn't remember them, so she wasn't comparing it with the first two. The vote is my daughter's - a nine out of ten. I loved the first Shrek movie, but disliked the second. Since I had heard that this one wasn't going very good, I went with pretty low expectations, and was pleasantly surprised. I actually laughed out loud at a few parts and found that the story flowed. I never once thought to glance down at my watch; I was pretty well entertained throughout. Not that the plot was ingenious, on the contrary, it was the same old story, but it had some smartly humorous lines, which I appreciated. I would give it a five out of ten.
