Is the Shrek 5 movie canceled? So far, there hasn’t been any official confirmation of the next Shrek movie, and fans are wondering what is happening. We have been waiting for six years and still nothing.
There have been a few notices of the production of the fifth Shrek movie, a couple of updates, but nothing major. Ever since NBC Universal bought Dreamworks, there has been zero new information regarding the animated movie. The latest rumors say that Shrek 5 has been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak. Could this be the truth?
Shrek 5 Cancellation Rumors
At the moment, NBCUniversal is working on different projects, which means the production of the Shrek series is on hold. The company is currently working on the production of a new Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and Forty Thieves movie. The upcoming Puss in Boots animated movie will arrive in cinemas next year, 2021.
As the current virus situation makes us take drastic actions, the company can only focus on the two projects. And they choose Puss in Boots. The Shrek franchise will simply have to wait for a little longer, and the important thing is that just because of he current situation, it doesn’t mean that the movie is canceled. In fact, NBCUniversal has big plans for the Shrek movie series.
