–Magic Mirror introducing Lord Farquaad to Snow White
Snow White (voiced by Amy Poehler, singing voice provided by Megan Hilty) is one of Princess Fiona's princess friends. She has a talent for singing, which she uses to charm animals and make them follow her orders. She is shown to be very proud and vain, even boasting how she won Fairest In The Land from the Evil Queen.
Snow White appears along with the fairy tale creatures banished to Shrek's Swamp by Lord Farquaad. She is sleeping in her glass coffin, handled by The 7 Dwarfs. Later the Magic Mirror also gave her as an option to be the wife of Lord Farquaad. She is also one of the princesses who attempts to catch the bouquet, but Dragon catches it first.
In Shrek 2, Snow White is briefly mentioned when the Fairy Godmother is explaining to Shrek that ogres do not live happily ever after.
She made a physical appearance in the Shrek 2 video game, where the player has to rescue her from the Fairy Godmother during Shrek and Donkey's Hero Time. Her coffin can also be found in the mine section in the original PC version.
Snow White appears more prominently in Shrek the Third, dressed in red. She becomes friends with Princess Fiona, Queen Lillian, Doris, Cinderella and the Sleeping Beauty before the events of the film. Prince Charming interrupts Fiona's baby shower after she gives her a dwarf as a gift to babysit the triplets, saying that she has six more at home. She escapes with Fiona, Queen Lillian, Doris and the other princesses. She’s later betrayed by Rapunzel and imprisoned in a dungeon. She complains that they could have just stayed put and carried on with their normal routines (having tea parties and similarly stereotypical "girly" behavior), claiming to not care who’s in charge. Later she’s content just to wait to be rescued, as normal for fairytale princesses.
Fiona encourages her and the others to show some initiative, and they manage to escape and head towards the castle. She tricks the guards (talking trees) by singing a high tone (using the same voice as in the Disney film) to charm the animals, and screaming (the same scream as in "The Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin) to command them to attack the trees. Her plan works and they enter the castle grounds, avoiding the knights guarding it. Snow White, along with the other princesses, Doris and Queen Lillian, arrives just in time to stop Prince Charming from killing Shrek. After Charming is defeated, she’s seen in the background, talking to the other princesses, Doris and Queen Lillian.
Although it’s unclear whether Snow White is married, at one point she’s seen with a tattoo on her upper arm with the name Dopey surrounded by a heart.
Snow White was a major subject in the episode "Team Cinderella or Team Snow White?". It was revealed that she had been seeing Prince Charming after his break-up with Cinderella. She even went as far to have woodland critters make her a wedding dress for Charming (even though he never proposed to her). Shrek endorses #teamsnow saying that Snow at least "keeps her shoes on".
Snow White can summon animals and communicate with them through song.
Snow White, unlike her traditional characterization is portrayed as being arrogant, acerbic, sarcastic, opinionated, stubborn, stuck up and lazy. She gives Fiona one of her dwarves as a baby shower gift, and states that all of the Princesses (with an exception to Doris) were all fair maidens. She seemingly resents Rapunzel, stating "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down thy golden extensions" as they walked in the sewers to escape.
Despite this, she is genuinely loyal and plays a major role in the fight against Prince Charming (see above).
Snow White sports short black hair (blonde in the Shrek 2 video game) with a yellow ribbon, white skin, red lips and cheeks and light blue eyes, and is seen wearing the same dress throughout her movie appearances. An exception is that in the first Shrek movie, her dress has white sleeves, while in the third movie, her dress sports purple sleeves to match her skirt. She has a heart tattoo on her arm with Dopey's name inside it, which can be seen when it shows the princesses preparing for battle and ripping their sleeves and skirts off.
- In a faux interview with Fiona in 2001, she was said to have been working with Fiona on a remake of Thelma & Louise.
- In promotional images for Shrek The Third, Snow White has long hair and a different dress.
- In several spin-off media, she is seen with blonde hair. This is especially noticeable in Shrek: Hassle at the Castle, the Shrek 2 video games and her McFarlane Toys figure.
- In the queue for Shrek 4-D, Snow White has a personal ad saying "Single Princess seeks prince or better. Seven little men can't be wrong! You've had the rest, now try the fairest of them all.".
