Fans are still recovering from the 3rd episode of the Game of Thrones season 8 and now someone just distracted them by sharing a theory about the show. A Twitter user @ohytargaryen claims that the bloody and violent HBO hit Game of Thrones is just a live-action version of Shrek, and they're not wrong. To prove it right, they even shared plenty of evidence.
Seems all our favorite characters have "twins" in the animated series ‘Shrek’. Well, that includes Arya, Cersei, Tyrion, and Jaime! Not only just the characters the HBO drama and the family-friendly animated series even share entire scenes and tragic deaths. And well, when you look at the evidence, it’s hard to deny the theory that the Twitter user shared!
Someone on Twitter just pointed out that ‘Game of Thrones’ is a live action version of ‘Shrek’ and the internet is losing its mind
The similarities are endless from the costume design inspirations
To the cinematography (maybe not as climactic in animation)
Of course, we can’t forget the intelligent and empathetic dragon characters in both
Are the Dothraki really that savage or are they just misunderstood?
Other fans joined the thread with even more plot similarities
Come on the adorable Podrick sure does look a lot like human Shrek
Arya and Puss in Boots definitely could go head to head in a duel
This fan theory sparked the twitter account @Shrekgot, dedicated solely to these side by side comparisons and even a GoT + Shrek trailer, which combines scenes from Game of Thrones dubbed with the voices from Shrek.
Hmm there certainly are a lot of character doppelgangers between the two. Fiesty, smirking, with plenty of tricks up her sleeve, Olenna Tyrell was the closest thing to a ‘Fairy Godmother’ on GOT
Two short men with large personalities and styles, however, Tyrion Lannister would make no doubt a better ruler than Lord Farquaad
Much like Jon Snow, King Harold’s true (frog) identity was not revealed until later – and it still made no difference
