"I told you, ogres don't live HAPPILY EVER AFTER!!"
-Fairy Godmother
The Fairy Godmother is one of the non-playable characters in LEGO Dimensions 2: The Rise of Enoch, from the Shrek franchise.

Background

In an alternate opening to the first Shrek film, the Fairy Godmother was a fortune teller named Dama Fortuna, based on the Fortune Teller from Shrek!, who narrated the first quarter of the opening through her tarot cards. When Fiona, having been born an ogre, approaches her, Fortuna gives her a beauty potion which has no effect, but Fortuna tells Fiona she will change between human and ogre until she finds true love. She was also originally going to give Shrek a potion which would help him defeat Dragon. She was going to be voiced by Linda Hunt. When this character was scrapped, she became the Fairy Godmother.

Beginnings

The Fairy Godmother was originally born a witch and lived in a small cottage with her family at some point she got a wand and became a fairy.

She transformed Harold into a human in order for him 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, but she insisted only True Love's Kiss would break the curse. Lillian however, unlike Harold, didn't like the Fairy Godmother, mentioning that she didn't trust her when she and Harold went to sign their kingdom away to Rumpelstiltskin.

Shrek the Musical

The Fairy Godmother appears as one of the fairy tale creatures evicted by Lord Farquaad, here called Flutterbell. She sings Freak Flag with the rest of the creatures. This shouldn't be taken as canon because if she WAS in Shrek's swamp with the creatures, she would've recognized him in Shrek 2.

Shrek Game

In this Internet game, she appears as a good person and the task she gives you is to find ingredients for a potion to turn Donkey into a horse. This was done to hide her role in the film as the main villain.

Shrek 2

In Shrek 2 she appears as the main antagonist.

The Fairy Godmother is first seen when Fiona goes to her bedroom balcony and cries, her tears supposedly calling to the Fairy Godmother. Arriving, the Fairy Godmother is surprised to learn that Fiona is married to an ogre named Shrek. To learn more, she picks up her son and goes to confront Fiona's father Harold, who reveals that Shrek had gone to the castle and freed Fiona first. The Fairy Godmother convinces Harold to find a way to get Shrek out of the picture before returning to her "cottage", which is actually a large factory where she manufactures spells and potions.

While she's there, she is brewing a love potion, which included "a drop of desire, a pinch of passion and just a hint of lust". She is then visited by Shrek, Donkey, and Puss, who come to her for help. However, she spites him by saying that ogres don't live happily ever after, citing multiple endings of other fairy tales to prove her point.

When Shrek leaves, she later learns he stole one of her potions (the Happily Ever After potion to be specific), and realizes that she could use this to her advantage. She and Charming go to the castle where Charming poses as a transformed Shrek while the Fairy Godmother arranges for the real Shrek (transformed by the potion) to witness a "moment" between Charming and Fiona, making him believe she's fallen for Charming. She uses his grief to seemingly gently convince him to stop living in a fairytale, and that if he truly loves Fiona he'll let her go. The plan works at first but is ultimately blown when she and Charming are summoned by Harold to the Poison Apple tavern.

When Charming complains that Fiona isn't warming up to him, Harold wants to call the whole thing off, declaring that you can't force someone to fall in love. Undeterred, the Fairy Godmother gives Harold the love potion from earlier. She tells him to have Fiona drink some, which will make her fall in love with the first man she kisses. She also tells him to make sure that Charming is the one to kiss her. Harold tries to defy her, but she then blackmails him by reminding him that she helped him with his happily ever after and that she can take it away just as easily, making Harold give in. Then when Charming calls her his mother, they hear someone exclaim "Mother?!" and look outside to see Shrek, Donkey, and Puss, the three of them having heard the whole thing.

Realizing the jig is up, the Fairy Godmother captures the trio and has them imprisoned while she and Charming attend a royal ball.

While they're there, the Fairy Godmother notices Fiona is put off due to Charming's behavior. She then declares to the crowd of dedicating a song to Fiona and "Prince Shrek" and sings Holding Out for A Hero, causing Fiona and Charming to dance.

The plan almost works until Shrek arrives, leading to a fight over the Fairy Godmother's wand. She orders her son to kiss Fiona since she's already taken the potion. Once he does, Fairy Godmother is shocked to see Fiona headbutting Charming as a response. It turns out that Harold didn't give Fiona the potion after all. Charming manages to recover his mother's wand and throws it to her. Enraged, she turns to Shrek and Fiona, exclaiming, "I told you ogres don't live happily ever after!"

She unleashes an energy bolt from her wand presumably to kill Shrek, but Harold jumps in at the last moment. The spell reflects off his breastplate and hits the Fairy Godmother. She is seemingly unharmed for a few seconds and attempts try to shoot Shrek again, but then her body suddenly bursts into bubbles and sparkles. There's nothing left of her but her broken glasses and her dim wand.

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 and is seen in a photo.

Shrek Forever After

The Fairy Godmother is mentioned at the beginning by Harold when he reminds Lillian that "Fairy Godmother said only true love's kiss can lift Fiona's curse." Lillian then replies "I don't trust that woman, Harold," possibly as a hint to Dama Fortuna's true role in Shrek 2. She also makes a cameo during the end credits.

Thriller Night

Fairy Godmother appears as a zombie besides other deceased villains of the series, such as son Prince CharmingLord Farquaad, and Rumpelstiltskin. Except for the growl she makes when emerging from the ground, she doesn't have any lines in the short film. Here, Fairy Godmother wears a pink dress instead of the usual blue dress. She is voiced by Pinky Turzo.
