Duloc

Duloc

The Lordship of Duloc was a town around an enormous palace in the Shrek Universe. In the first film, its citizens live under a strict dictatorship commanded by Lord Farquaad, who spends his short existence trying to make the place artificially perfect, with symmetrical planning and rigid rules for the villagers to follow. He further plans to transform it into a kingdom by marrying Princess Fiona. After Farquaad is defeated, it becomes an abandoned ghost town as seen in Scared Shrekless.

History and overview

Shrek-easter-egg

Duloc main street

Duloc used to be situated on the edge of a giant cornfield. Surrounded by high walls, it was enterable via turnstiles at a entrance parking lot. Beyond the gates, there were many white houses with blue accents, and many shops with pink flowers and green trees. One gift shop sold nothing but Lord Farquaad souvenirs.

Towering over the town is the Duloc Castle, where the Lord lived, but other notable buildings include the Cathedral and Courtyard/Area. Prior to Lord Farquaad's plan to become a king, over a thousand magical creatures used to live in Duloc together with the villagers. They were then banished and sent to Shrek's Swamp.

The Duloc arena hosted the competition in which Lord Farquaad chose who would rescue Princess Fiona from the castle in which she was held captive by the Dragon.

The Lordship have been abandoned after Lord Farquaad was defeated by Shrek and eaten by the Dragon. It then became an dark, creepy ghost town. The cornfield, vegetation, and sunflowers surrounding the town has also died. And it is unknown where Duloc's immigrants go after it was abandoned.

Duloc Information Booth

At the Duloc information booth, tiny wooden Duloc Dolls sing "Welcome to Duloc", after which a picture is taken of the puller and whoever stands next to the puller.

In Scared Shrekless, a Halloween version of the booth appears, with creepy wooden dolls singing a frightening parody of the song.

Trivia

  • Duloc carries many parodical references to theme parks such as Disneyland, and to totalitarian dystopias where citizens follow strict rules to maintain a "perfect" order.
  • In a development plot for the first film, Fiona would be born ogre to the King and Queen of Duloc. They would lock her in the tower during her childhood, but would eventually die, leaving the throne to the ambitious Farquaad.
  • In another, possibly connected plotline, Farquaad planned to transform Duloc into a giant shopping mall, and that's because he would banish all magic creatures from there.
