Fans are clamoring for more Shrek, even though it was billed as the last entry in 2010. Despite producing four successful sequels, the Shrek animated franchise has been noticeably absent among many of Hollywood’s recent reboots. “Shrek 5” has been in development since 2016, which means we can now wait for it to be released.

After the first Shrek in 2001, there were 3 sequels that came out a few years apart. Now it’s been years and no new films have come out. When will we see our favorite ogre back on screen again? Here’s everything you need to know:

Shrek 5 Release Date Details:

Shrek 5 hasn’t been confirmed with a release date just yet, but in 2012 when they made the fourth film, Dreamworks hinted it was possible. Development for Shrek 5 had started in 2016, where Michael McCullers came on board to work as the screenwriter.

Shrek 5’s release date has been delayed to an unknown date. There has been no information released on when the movie is scheduled to be released, or who will portray its voice cast. Fandom estimates that Shrek 5 will be released on September 30, 2022. Home media release set for November 2022. It is still unclear whether this deadline will be met with the global pandemic slowing things down.

Shrek 5 Cast Details:

The upcoming Shrek 5 will mark a comeback for the original voice cast of Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, and Antonio Banderas. Plus, Princess Fiona is played by Cameron Diaz. Many readers are wondering the same thing since she retired from acting back in 2014.

Shrek 5 Plot Details:

Growing up, Shrek would say to his father that he wanted to “go above the world” – meaning he wanted more than anything else that which is greater than any other thing.

It had been announced that Shrek 5 would be a prequel and released in 2013. However, the production of Shrek Forever After confirmed that the fourth film would serve as a finale for everyone’s favorite green ogre.

Rumors of a fifth film followed a brief break in the years that followed, however, it becomes clear production on Shrek 5 really kicked off after NBC Universal acquired DreamWorks Animation for $3.8 billion back in 2016. Steve Burke, the chairman of NBC Universal, spoke at the time about plans to revive the Shrek franchise, and later that year it was reported that a new film with be released in 2019.

But things changed for both the actor and character this year when Murphy confirmed to Hollywood Reporter that talks of a fifth feature film had fallen through. Then in 2018 Variety reported that Shrek 5 and Puss in Boots 2 would be rebooted with Chris Meledandri, who brought to life Despicable Me, as the director.

Originally slated for release in 2019, Shrek 5 has remained a mystery ever since its production was announced. Given that the franchise was lagging a bit by the time we got to Shrek Forever After and the 10-year gap, it seems likely that Shrek 5 will be either a reboot or prequel.

With Shrek 5 about to hit theaters in 2022, little is known about how the reboot will differ from previous installments. Since the Shrek franchise has been around for so long, it would be necessary to come up with a new take for a new story.
