Somebody Once Told Me 'Shrek' Is Being Inducted Into The National Film Registry

What does Shrek have in common with Gone With The Wind? Where you might find Shrek held in equal standing with Citizen Kane? If your answer is anything other than "on the National Film Registry in the Library Of Congress," you're wrong!

Everyone's favorite cantankerous ogre is joining a pretty elite list, as it was just announced the 2002 film will be inducted onto the National Film Registry this year.

You might be asking what the National Film Registry even is.

According to the Library of Congress website, "It is a list of films deemed 'culturally, historically or aesthetically significant' that are recommended for preservation," to ensure that a record or a copy of these films survive for future generations to come.

"They reflect who we are as a people and as a nation."

"These films are not selected as the 'best' American films of all time, but rather as works of enduring importance to American culture," the website reads.

Bear that in mind now when I tell you once again that Shrek has now been inducted into the National Film Registry.

It's very well deserved!

"We couldn't be happier for Shrek to join the ranks of some of the most moving, transformative, and important films which have made lasting cultural impacts around the world," DreamWorks shared when they announced the news.

Fans are obviously pretty happy!

It's definitely worth celebrating!

Other inductees this year include The Dark Knight, A Clockwork Orange, Grease, The Blues Brothers, and The Hurt Locker, among others.
