    This could make a great spinoff film. Let's say donkey remembers everything but only vaguely. And one day Pinocchio appears as a real boy and tells them all his story and what he went through on Pleasure Island. Then donkey remembers everything. And the movie will be about donkey and Puss in Boots and the dragon and Shrek shutting down Pleasure Island and rescuing all the children that are still there. "But that's just a suggestion, A Film Suggestion!!"

    Good theory BUT... wouldn't you think instead of turning into a steed, he would have turned back into a human as he desired after drinking the potion with Shrek? Shrek went from being an ogre to a human. Why would Donkey not turn into a human as well seeing as that was his initial form? And he seemed extremely ecstatic to be a horse when on the other hand Shrek got to be a human. No questions or complaints from Donkey at all. And why not use his real name instead of just "Donkey"?

    Nice Theory, I love it BUTT: the twist at the end about him not saving the kids is not really solid. Assume he did tell somebody about it: Conclusion The Park is shut down, Pinochio will never be turned into a half donkey or even leave Gipetto. He has no chance to learn from his mistakes and stays a puppet untill Gipetto is sick of him and gives him away to Farquad. Therefor Pinochios beeing a puppet does in no way relate to the question if donkey ratted on them or not...

    Well don’t forget when Donkey first showed up he was being sold. So maybe he did tell someone but they betrayed him and tried to sell him off. Also if he was a kid, kids get traumatized and will avoid what caused it so Donkey isn’t a bad character he just can’t face where he came from... after all he still doesn’t like talking about it

    Plenty of victims keep quiet and thus allow the ones who victimized them to continue victimizing others. Sad reality. There would be a lot less misery if victims were brave enough to stand up and pushed for it to stop. So I can't be too critical of Donkey for keeping his mouth shut. Prolly still afraid that he'd be caught and shipped off to the salt mines.

    Don't be too mean to Donkey. He's probably traumatized and clearly doesn't want to talk abou the island and his transformation. Plus he is probably repressing (I hope google translate gave me the right word) his memories of these events.

    It's quite possible that Donkey is so traumatized that he would prefer to avoid the topic all together and has no idea or means of how to fix it. He may not even remember where Pleasure Island is. Oh, sure, he has a dragon, but a dragon can only do so much.

    The way he could have escaped the island could have been by faking that he could no longer talk, and that's why he was sold to an old lady without the bad guys knowing he could talk, the old lady then found out he could and then tried to sell him as a fairy tale creature.

  • Chris Wright

    First: I’ve always believed Donkey was meant to be the talking donkey the Saul was riding when he was converted on the Damascus road, in the Bible. I might have been wrong but that was always my theory. Second: I agree with MatPat here about Donkey ignoring his past and not trying to help others, by the end of the second movie he is best friends with a princess and her family, where the father/king was also a cursed animal/human hybrid. If Donkey really did have any thought or concerns for all those young boys being transformed into donkeys on pleasure island, he should have said something to the King, it was his duty as someone with high connections to do something. Sure he certainly may have had PTSD, but with any form of grief counseling or PTSD counseling, the most successful people first deal with acceptance then they do their best to help others. Just look at Military Veterans like Chris Kyle. After years and years of being free from that situation and having a happy life with a happy family, he should have done something, Plainly put Donkey was being selfish by not helping others. Also this is just a theory about make believe movie about fairytale creatures, so why does it matter?

    I'm sorry, but I have to say shame on you Mat. This theory was mind blowing up until you started blaming Donkey and whilst this feels like a minor thing, you have to realize that a portion of your audience might also be a survivor of deep, dangerous trauma -- rape victims, victims of severe abuse, victims of witnessing horrific blame Donkey into being a "Bad boy" because he said nothing, if your theory is true, is kinda an ass move on your end. Especially since you're an influencer and a lot of those audience members might look to you for comfort and you're here blaming victims. Honestly, shame on you Mat. Truly. Folks that have suffered outstanding trauma have this thing called PTSD along with Flash Bulb memories. A lot of times they do stay quiet about it not because they don't want to help others, but because the memories are debilitating to recall because they'll end up literally reliving it like it's happening. It's a very serious issue. This rings even harder because we ALREADY KNOW Disney and Pixar already touch on dark adult topics in the background, such a Rape with Maleficient. You already went through this in a theory. Pleasure Island was already super dark as a child, in an Adult setting, it also lingers in themes of Child Trafficking, Child Molestation, Child Pornography even (Adult "caretakers" taking care of Young Boys on PLEASURE ISLAND, and selling them off VOICELESS and stripped naked??) like we understand wholly what themes that whole sequence was trying to put through. You victim blaming donkey, if your theory is true, is borderline equivalent to blaming a child being trafficked or blaming a child pornography victim for being a victim. It's NOT a light topic at all. This theory was truly mind blowing and spectacular, and I'm usually a chill person, people do stupid things on the internet and you can't be offended about everything. Calling a victim a bad person though is definitely shameful. ESPECIALLY when the theory revolves around SUCH dark themes-- Come on Mat, I've been a long time fan of yours now but this is a bit low for you :/
