In 2001, the world was introduced to a solitary green Ogre named Shrek, who helped save Princess Fiona and gained the unlikeliest of friends, a waffle-loving donkey. The film was so successful that there are currently four Shrek films in the franchise, with a Shrek 5 currently in development.
Guests who visit Universal Studios Resort in Orlando, as well as Universal Studios Hollywood, even have the opportunity to post for a picture with the big green guy and have a conversation with Donkey. One of those Donkey interactions recently happened at Universal Hollywood, but with a twist!
TikTok user Lily (@lilyynaaa) shared that she and her family were at Universal Studios Hollywood when they approached Donkey. Her brother then decided to greet burro in Shrek’s voice. Donkey was completely shocked when the visiting Guest spoke to him just like Shrek. Check out the adorably funny 3-part video below!
At Universal Studios Hollywood, Donkey can be found right outside the DreamWorks Theatre where Guests can watch a 3D Kung Fu Panda show. Donkey always has great conversations with a ton of funny and sarcastic things to say to whoever visits him. Guests may also be able to visit Shrek, and occasionally Fiona at Donkey’s stand as well. Sometimes Puss n’ Boots may also make an appearance!
There are a number of other character encounters Guests can have when they visit Universal Hollywood. They can see stars like Marilyn Monroe, classic movie monsters like Frankenstein’s monster and Dracula, and other cartoon characters, such as Scooby-Doo, minions from Despicable Me, and Hello Kitty.
DreamWorks Theatre used to be home to the Shrek 4D show, but it changed to Kung Fu Panda in 2018. However, due to their popularity, Donkey and his fellow Shrek castmates continue to appear at the theme park.
