Prepend to the content

For more than ten years, moviegoers who have been ardent followers of the American fantasy comedy Shrek have anticipated the release of Shrek 5. The voice actor for Donkey, Eddie Murphy, stated in September 2016 that Shrek 5’s screenplay was finished, and the film was scheduled for release in 2019 or 2020. But the movie wasn’t released at that time. The film and its development have been in constant news, and according to some reports, the project is indeed a work in progress. It is slowly but steadily overcoming its development obstacles and inching nearer to the release or so we are being told.

For the fifth movie, rumors initially indicated that Cameron Diaz would not be the voice of the female lead protagonist, Princess Fiona. However, there has yet to be a confirmation of whether or not Cameron Diaz will be a part of the project. Despite the roadblocks, Shrek 5 might be the most thrilling instalment in the franchise following the triumph of the 2022 spin-off Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. Keep reading to learn more details.

Shrek 5: Is it still in the works?

There has yet to be an official release date for Shrek 5 because the production house, Dreamworks Animation, has been met with many issues. In an interview with Fox Business in February 2014, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Dreamworks Animation CEO, hinted that a fifth film could be in the pipeline. He said about the characters, “We like to let them have a little bit of time to rest.” Further confirming the existence of the fifth film, he added, “But I think you can be confident that we’ll have another chapter in the Shrek series. We’re not finished, and more importantly, neither is he.”

A few sources claim that Shrek 5 might be released sometime in 2024 or 2025, although there has yet to be an official confirmation. Given that the previous four Shrek movies are available on Amazon Prime Video on a rental basis and Apple TV on a subscription basis, Shrek 5 may be available on the same streamers after its theatrical release.
