It is safe to say that Shrek is one of the most anticipated movies to be released, and we are all looking forward to it. We have been waiting for this part for quite a while now, but what is it precisely that we know of it?
We know that the fifth part was confirmed seven years ago. We also thought the action would start where Shrek Forever After ended, but that is not true. Producers want it to be a reboot, so that’s what we’re going for.
At some point, people believed it was canceled, but that’s also not true. The movie started its pre-production worked a long time ago.
On the 15th of March, we got an announced on Twitter from the production, saying that the movie has been delayed to 2022 because of the new coronavirus outbreak. But does NBCUniversal have other plans, instead of going with Shrek 5? It has been announced that they are also working on “Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and Forty Thieves”.
The filming for Shrek 5 is expected to start at the end of the year. Right now, because of the pandemic, there is not much they can do.
You should know that Shrek 5 will not pick up where the previous movie ended, as stated above. This will be a fresh, new story. We’re getting the same characters, but with some changes. We’ll see Shrek and Donkey going on adventures again, but they will have to deal with an action set nowadays. Perhaps they will also need to learn how to use technology.
So when is the release date?
According to rumors, Shrek 5 will be released in September 2022.
