Murphy plays Donkey in Shrek the Third with co-stars Justin Timberlake, Mike Myers, and Cameron Diaz. Shrek marrying Princess Fiona and becoming the next King and Queen of Far Far Away wasn’t part of the plan. So when his father-in-law, King Harold, falls ill it is up to Shrek to find a suitable heir or he will be forced to give up his beloved swamp for the throne. Recruiting Donkey and Puss In Boots for a new quest, Shrek sets out to bring back the rightful heir to the throne, Fiona’s rebellious cousin Artie. Antonio Banderas:
It’s a freaky experience. Especially Donkey. Eddie Murphy always said to me, You know, sometimes I look at the guy on the screen and I see myself.
