Em-One : This is truly touching, such emotion.

Pi eke - PhotoandGrime : :( This makes me sad

Horror Gaming : There's a lot more still unreleased, they recorded 95% of the movie before his death

unclesporkums : Funny that people keep thinking that David Spade should have been the voice of Donkey in this version, since Peter Segal on the Tommy Boy commentary said that Shrek's writers based Shrek and Donkey's relationship after Farley and Spade in Tommy Boy.

unclesporkums : Another change in this version was that Princess Fiona was voiced by Janeane Garofalo instead of Cameron Diaz, and she had more of Janeane's deadpan personality.

UCMGTWOClan : Rip Chris Farley

Graphomite : This is quite cool, although I think Dreamworks made the right choice to cut out Shrek's sympathetic pursuit of parental perils and keep the focus on his relationship with the existing characters. Having him find love, find a friend, find a home, *and* get over his self-depreciating ogre heritage issues seems like one too many plot points to divide a character into. I also prefer Shrek as someone simply ignorant of what makes him content rather than a secret softy whose true motives require leading questions and an exposition scene to understand. Besides, they went back and wound up making a whole movie out of this general concept in the last Shrek film, with Shrek finding himself looking around at his domestic life and suddenly not feeling "ogre" enough. And a that point, the plot device felt like a natural progression because we experienced all of Shrek's "backstory" leading up to it.

MakaWakaPon : it's really interesting to see Shrek and Donkey to be drawn in classic, Disney-esque 2D. Wish movie was made that way. Voice actors did an outstanding job, by the way.

yoshimnm : In addition to the fact that Farley passed away during the making of this film, what also makes me sad is hearing his performance. They picked a great scene from the movie that had humor, but also showed more depth in Shrek's character, and if you listen to Farley's voice he's hitting those emotions perfectly. I think this clip shows us a glimpse of Farley being able to hit those dramatic notes in addition to be the clown. Who knows, maybe he could've gone on to do some more serious movies, or sort of dramedy roles, and he might have been great in them. It's sad we'll never be able to see that. RIP Chris Farley, we miss you.

maudina palmer : I really with they could have finished this. Chris did a really good job.

PhatGirlLuva68-ThelastOG : This Shrek would have been amazing.

JohnTheJuneBug : Damn, shrek would have been a completely different movie. Sucks we couldn't see the final product of this version.

GurahkWeavile : Farley sounded pretty good as Shrek, but it sounds so weird hearing a Shrek without the accent.

NorthernSpade : Sounds like the Farley Shrek was more of a young adult. I imagine they wrote Shrek differently after Farley passed.

M.V Knight : I prefer mike Meyers voice but Chris Farleys is pretty good. Rip. He was one of the funniest people to watch of his time

Gregsterstyle's Corner 1994 : Transcript- Donkey: Man, there's nothing like a fire and a noble, romantic mission to warm the cockles of your heart. Shrek: Yeah, I like my cockle's room temperature, thank you very much. Donkey: Hey, if you're not doing this for cockle warming, then why are you doing it? Shrek: (burps) Simple; Fartwad gets his princess, I get what I want. Donkey: Which is..... Now come on. What do you want? Shrek: I don't have time to set it to music. Donkey: Oh, this is another one of those *onion* things. Shrek: No, this one of those, "Drop it and leave me alone", things. Donkey: Well, why won't you talk about it? Shrek: Why do *you* want to talk about it? Donkey: Why are you asking a question with a question? Shrek: Why are you asking questions I don't want to answer? Donkey: Why are you blocking? Shrek: I'm not blocking? Donkey: Then, why do you have problems expressing your wants? Shrek: I don't. I want you to shut up! See? No problem. Donkey: You're just displacing your anger. Shrek: Believe me, it is properly placed. Donkey: You're really mad at whoever did this to you. Shrek: No one did anything to me! Donkey: Yes, yes, yes. Someone hurt you so bad, someone hurt you many years ago! Shrek: (enraged) LEAVE MY PARENTS OUT OF THIS!!! Donkey: Breakthrough! Let's go with that! Let's explore our family origins! Were you hugged as a child, Shrek? Shrek: Alright, alright! I want a home and....someone to share it with, ok? Donkey: Yes, Shrek. It's ok. Shrek: And Faarquad said he'd give me my own swamp in exchange for the princess. Donkey: You really think you can trust that weasling oil rag, don't you? Shrek: Hm! Yeah right! But now I'm gonna have what he wants. Donkey: (laughs) Boy, has he underestimated you! Shrek: Yeah, he can join the club. People see me and they go, 'AHH! Help! A big, stupid, stinky, smelly, ugly ogre! I'm so scared!!!', and they judge me before they even know me. My folks always tell me everyone loves ogres. Donkey: I see. Shrek: So, I guess they were a little over protective. Donkey: A little? Shrek: That's why I gotta do this. I want them to know that I can take care of myself. Donkey: And you want to make 'em proud. Shrek: Yeah. Donkey: You know what? When we met, I didn't think you were just a big, stupid, ugly ogre. Shrek: Yeah, I know. Donkey: Goodnight, Shrek. Shrek: Goodnight, Donkey.

Saido Kuraku TM : This seems to be more so serious and dramatic. I guess they changed it not just because Farley died, but this might've been a heart breaker story.

The Indigenous Atheist : Davis Spade as Donkey

Magicman205 : I really feel like if Chris Farley voiced Shrek, Shrek wouldn't have become this massive internet joke like it is with Mike Meyers. Farley just sounds so suited for this role.

The JurassicMan : blameitonjorge anyone?

OfficialEVANLUTION : I think the worse thing about Chris Farley's death is that we never got to see him in a dramatic role; it's nice that we get to hear a sliver of what it might've been like.

Toothless : Mike Meyers suited the part much better, Shrek is really lovable with his current voice

GoldeMan : Thank you for mirroring this! The original video was put on private.

Ricky Gillette : Chris Farley as shrek kinda sounds like John dimaggio to me.

Andrew Elkin : It sucks that Chris Farley died too early he would have been perfect for this and we could have gotten a Matt Foley Movie

Justin Y. : This video is like an onion. Because it is making me cry

CROSSOVER ANIMATION STUDIOS : Chris farley as Shrek before Mike Myers.

Abelhawk : Oh my gosh, this is _so much better._

Cody Gearheart : This would've been a totally better movie. It's actually kinda deep tbh... :'c

Bromander-in-Chief : Wow, I'm torn between Mike and Chris here. Both are/were great SNL veterans and comedy geniuses. May Chris rest in peace.

Damian Rice : Chris Farley would make a great shrek, rest in peace my fat prince ;'(

cmlmonstar 007 : As for Shrek V, they need it where Shrek finds his brother Farley

dmace81 : I would of probably watched this version. Don't like the cgi one or mike myers.

Riley Zack : Only if David spade was donkey and this version was finished...

MrDrawingboard1 : Man, Shrek would have been a completely different movie, but actually I would have like to see this.

Sharrel Wright : Tragic,this role would have brought Farley to a wider,mass audience, he's really showing more emotion than Myres did, I think Myres put too much cartoon into the role, even though he's a cartoon doesn't mean he's meant to be 2d in character

Alex Hartsell : You know Chris Farley is really good in this moment. It is so sad he died and could not complete the rest of this movie and do more dramatic movies. While I like Mike Myers as Shrek, I think Farley nails it good with this scene and Eddie Murphy. Also if Chris Farley completed his dialogue for this version, I would watch this back to back with The Emperor's New Grove (AKA Kingdom of the Sun) that stars his buddy/partner David Spade. Also while I love Emperor's New Grove, it did have production problems that are the same of this movie and yeah production for animation films always goes to changes (just look at the stories of the productions of Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur). But sometimes we get a good or bad animated film after those tough production changes.

Javelin : David Spade would've been a horrible choice for Donkey. Eddie Murphy did a terrific job playing. Too bad they couldn't work with whatever recordings they had of Chris and made the rest of the movie out of it.

vocalpunk97 : RIP Chris Farley

TERROR-ible vision : This is brilliant. A much better version.

Andrew B : This just makes me want to watch an alternate universe version of the Shrek film if it were to be finished this way.

Dennis Bogan : The end where he says "I know..." quietly. Hits me hard. Would have been interesting to have gone this way with the role. R.I.P. fat guy in a little coat.

Paul Scopin : somehow, it kind of sounds like the french dub of shrek

Martin Craw : Man. It would’ve been awesome if Chris Farley got the part of Shrek. Too bad he had to die before the film was finished though. :( Also if he was still alive today he would’ve made a great voice for a hilarious Disney character or in a show on Nickelodeon.

Evan Kolar : RIP Chris Farley.

Kyle Carr : If anyone can find anymore audio of Chris Farley recording for Shrek I will frickin pay you for it.

Erin Loughery : That is Tom Waits' Innocent When You Dream at the end.

MrJohnffrey87 : Donkey looks Disney esque in this reel, I wonder if they were done by one of the former Disney employees.

Kay Robbie : On wow I never knew that Chris Farley was the original voice of Shrek. And Mike Myers only got the part after Chris died.

Kyle Dominy : Chris Farley would’ve made Shrek wayyy more emotional. I love Mikey Myers and all but his voice acting has no emotion.
