Shrek and Donkey then go on a journey to save Fiona and Shrek whom Shrek ends up marrying at the end of the film.
Shrek and Fiona return from the honeymoon to find that Fiona's father King Harold wants to meet them and give them his blessing. Shrek doesn't want to go but Donkey and Fiona finally convince him. When Shrek and Fiona finally arrive in Harold's kingdom Far Far Away the King and Queen are shocked to see Fiona (now an ogre) married to an ogre (Shrek.) Queen Lillian accepts the fact that her daughter is married to an ogre because she sees that she is happily in love. Harold however is upset (because if Fiona doesn't marry Prince Charming Fairy God Mother will turn him back into a frog) and hire an ogre hit man (Puss in Boots) to kill Shrek. Harold sends Shrek and Donkey on a scavenger hunt which is actually a trap. Puss in Boots attacks the duo but soon becomes friends with Shrek after Shrek saves him from choking. Shrek decides to go to Fairy God Mother because he wants to be handsome so Fiona's father will accept him. Fairy God Mother however doesn't believe in ogre having happily ever afters and sends them away. The trio then disguises themselves as employees at Fairy God Mother's potion factory and steal a beauty potion causing much chaos in the process. Shrek then wants to drink the potion but Puss wants to test it first in order to repay his debt to Shrek. Donkey however becomes jealous and takes the potion and drinks some of it. Nothing happens and Shrek takes a drink thinking that it probably doesn't work on Donkeys. The potion has the same effect on Shrek but with more gas. Shrek then pours the rest of it on a mushroom and the trio walks away discouraged. After they walk away the mushroom begins to glow and turns into a rose. The trio then make there way to a barn house to get out of the oncoming storm where they pass out. When they wake up they are surrounded by woman who keep saying that Shrek is handsome he looks at himself in the mirror and sees that the potion has worked. The potion has worked on Donkey too and he is now a beautiful white stallion. Shrek and Puss ride off on Donkey towards the castle where Fiona has reverted back to her human form. Shrek gets to the castle where Fairy God Mother tells him that Fiona doesn't need Shrek anymore and Shrek sees that she is with Prince Charming now (this is because Charming claimed that he was Shrek and that his differet voice and actions were effects of the potion.)
