The well-appreciated animated series is almost confirmed as hitting theaters soon. There has been nearly a decade since we last saw our beloved character’s adventures, friends, and of course, dear Fiona. Dreamworks has begun the work for the fifth installment of the series, and we got high chances to see the project in two years. We still don’t have an officially announced release date, but there are a few details that might surprise you.
Shrek 5 Movie Under Development
Shrek 5 is currently under development, with producers still trying to figure it out the best way to put characters in the spotlight, and writers in a full process of developing the most fabulous plot ever. Also, NBC Universal prepares some big stuff this time around for the fifth installment. There have been many speculations about the scheduling and pre-production for the upcoming Shrek movies, and now we have some trustworthy information about it. It seems Michael McCullers has been introduced as the new writer of the team recently, and he brought the best news so far.
Here is his full statement: “I finished that script which I really, really, really love and it’s really personal to me. It’s got a pretty big reinvention behind it that I guess I can’t really reveal. Still, since DreamWorks was sold to Universal in that time for over $3billion, I imagine they’re particularly interested in it stepping up and actually figuring out the future of the franchise in that way on the corporate level.”
We also got confirmation from NBCUniversal and Dreamworks studios that Shrek 5 didn’t get released back in 2016 due to the animation studio takeover.
