|Chris's reflection on Shrek Retold|
|Released||29 November 2018|
Shrek Retold is a crowdfunded shot-for-shot remake of the 2001 film Shrek, released on 29 November 2018. It was organized by 3GI Productions for their annual Shrekfest convention. 200 people contributed their own versions of scenes from the movie. Chris was assigned scene #23 out of 200, in which Shrek is convinced by Lord Farquaad to go on a quest to rescue Princess Fiona so he can have his swamp back.
Chris's scene features voice acting and crudely colored stills that were surprisingly animated - though very likely by someone else - probably doing the most work he's done in around a year and a half. His scene is still only a little over a minute long. The audio on his scene also continually skips numerous times, as if it were filmed with his abused PSEye.
Shrek Retold was a rare instance where Chris asked to be part of something, Chris did it and completed the task on time, and no drama was started as a result of harassment by weens or Chris himself. As of July 2022, Shrek Retold has amassed almost 9 million views, making it the most-viewed video in Christory by default.

Why did you interrupt my video, Barbara?
[Chris's segment starts at 00:25:04 and ends at 00:26:19]
Chris: This is Christine Chandler, I'll be depicting scene 23.
As Shrek enters the ring, the crowd cheers.
Shrek: "Yeaaaauuuuuh! Uuuuuuuuuuuuuugh! Daaaaaaaaaaugh!" [Chris groans]
Chris: The bad guy— I forget his name— communicates to the armed forces and Shrek becomes a bit offended and Donkey is scared...?
Knight: "Shall I give the orders, sir?"
Farquaad: "No, I have a better idea. People of Duloc, I give you our champion!"
Chris: The crowd cheers.
Farquaad: "Congratulations, ogre, you have won the honor of going on a... great... and noble....... quest..."
Chris: ...says that guy, I forget his name still.
Shrek: "I'm already on a quest! A quest to get my swamp back!"
Farquaad: "Your swamp?"
Shrek: "Yeah! My swamp! Where you dumped those fairytale creatures."
Farquaad: "Okay. All right, ogre, I'll make you a deal. Go on this quest for me and I'll give you your swamp back."
Shrek: "Exactly the way it was?"
Farquaad: "Right down to the last slime-covered toadstool."
Shrek: "And the squa-terrs?"
Farquaad: "As good as gone."
Shrek: "What kind of... quest?"
Chris: And I guess that's it for scene 23 of Shrek.
[Chris inhales sharply through his nose, then the next segment of the film plays.]
