Once upon a time in the kingdom of DreamWorks, a magical realm was created called Shrek. Then there was Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, Shrek Forever After, and a slew of spin-off movies, shorts, and television shows. With this vast catalog to pull from, it's no wonder there are Shrek fan theories that are as vast as its own mythology. There are theories that explain how the Happily Ever After potion may be the entire reason Donkey and Dragon were able to conceive the dronkeys. Another concept places the entire Shrek universe in a post-1970s fairy tale land due to the apparent knowledge of Tic-Tacs. And if you've ever wondered how Fiona survived her entire childhood locked in a tower without food, there's a theory that suggests she was given a steady diet of knights concocted from recipes in Dragon's cookbook.
Whether you've seen every Shrek movie or just consider yourself a casual "Shrekkie," this list of fan theories is a must read. Vote up your favorite fan theories and check on back again to see which one made it to the top!
