** After Shrek won't the tournament in the first film, there was to be a scene where Farquaad explains the quest to Shrek and they're standing side-by-side to show their size comparison ([[AdaptationInducedPlotHole explaining Shrek and Donkey's size jokes to Fiona later in the film]]). One was storyboard which Farquaad wish to turn Duloc into a more modern city with convenient stores and mini-malls.

** It's difficult to imagine just how influential and popular ''Shrek'' was when it first came out, as just about every western animated feature has been influenced by its humor and style, not to mention "proving" that computer animation was the only way to go in the 21st century.

* WriterRevolt: Well, ''producer'' revolt. While never confirmed, there are many who theorize that former Disney CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg made this film as a great big "Screw you!" to his previous company after years of his ideas being forced out in favor of lighter family fare. It worked, seeing as how this film put [=DreamWorks=] on the map and helped end his former boss Michael Eisner's career at Disney, albeit indirectly.
