The Magic Mirror on the Wall is a mirror with magical properties. The mirror is loosely based on the magic mirror from Snow White, alongside Disney's interpretation.

The mirror is able to answer any sort of question imaginable. The Mirror first appears in Shrek where it helps Lord Farquaad pick a princess. It appears briefly at the end of Shrek 2, as well as in Shrek Forever After.



He is under command of Lord Farquaad and helps him to pick a princess for him. Farquaad could choose between: Cinderella, Snow White and Fiona. He is later seen in Shrek's Karaoke Dance Party.

Shrek 2

The Magic Mirror now appears to be claimed as a TV screen, reporting the news of Shrek, Donkey and Puss in Boots being captured by the guards of Far Far Away and is seen during the song "Livin la Vida Loca".

Shrek Forever After

In the alternative universe he is again being used as a TV screen announcing that Rumpelstiltskin would have an announcement to the people of Far Far Away that if they catch the ogre Shrek they get a grand reward.

Shrek the Musical

The Mirror's role is no different than the first film. It still helps Farquaad pick Fiona as his princess, and is used for his amusement.

Video Games

The Magic Mirror appears in the Shrek Forever After video game, in which the main characters can use it to teleport between Shrek's normal world and the alternate reality.
