Fairy Godmother

The Fairy Godmother is Prince Charming's mother and the main antagonist of Shrek 2. She is voiced by Jennifer Saunders.



The Fairy Godmother transformed Harold into a human in order to marry Lillian, in return for the hand of their future daughter. When they saw Fiona become an ogress (possibly due to the Fairy Godmother), they sought her help. Lillian however, unlike Harold, didn't like the Fiary Godmother, mentionning that she didn't trust her when she and Harold went to sign their kingdom away.

In Shrek 2

When Shrek consults the Fairy Godmother to try to mend his relationship with Fiona, she dismisses them, saying that ogres don't live happily ever after. After briefly insulting Shrek (until somebody arrives), Shrek says he's leaving, but steals a "Happily Ever After" potion that he believes will restore Fiona's love for him.

At the ball, while Fairy Godmother sings, "I need a hero," as Charming is about to kiss Fiona, Shrek interrupts him.

Then, Fiona knocks him out with a headbutt. The Fairy Godmother then blasts a spell at him, presumably to kill him (because she finally realizes that he IS Shrek who took the potion all along), but Harold sends it back on her, reducing her to bubbles.

In Shrek the Third

The Fairy Godmother doesn't appear in Shrek the third as she is dead but she is mentioned several times by her son.

In Shrek Forever After

in end credits only.


She appears to be a sweet and stereotypical fairy godmother but in reality she is a manipulator who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

  • Another Fairy Godmother appeared in the ending of Shehrirstek, tr movieansforming four mices into stallions.
  • It is quite possible that she is actually the one that had cursed Fiona as part of her plan. However, (if this was the case) it would have gone horribly wrong, since Shrek saved Fiona and not Charming.
  • The Fairy Godmother is the first DreamWorks to use the term "bloody".
  • She is the spoof of the real Fairy Godmother from the fairy tales.
  • In the Shrek 2 video game, her dress is pink/purple/magenta instead of blue. Why they changed it's color is unknown.


Coming soon!
