Billed as the "next great holiday classic" (yeah, we'll see about that), the new DreamWorks animated special Shrek the Halls premieres on ABC TV tomorrow night.
Featuring the returning vocal talents of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas, the 30-minute program tells the tale of Shrek wanting to spend a nice, quiet Christmas with the Mrs. and the kids. Why a big green ogre wants to celebrate a Christian holiday is beyond me, but his plans are waylaid by some unexpected visitors, namely Donkey and Puss in Boots.
Naturally, Shrek gets all Scrooge-y, but something tells me that he (like every other protagonist in a TV X-mas special) eventually comes around to learn (all together now) "the true meaning of Christmas".
