It’s been 20 years since the release of “Shrek,” but it’s not over yet. This is wonderful news for fans since they can expect to see more of the titular green monster and his friends in the future. As a result of the extended wait for a new “Shrek” film, “Shrek 5” will likely be received with excitement from all corners of the fandom.
Over a decade after “Shrek Forever After,” which made us believe that DreamWorks’ hit franchise had come to an end, the desire to make additional “Shrek” movies has never faded. The fifth film in the series was announced in 2016, but it hasn’t had the easiest time making it to the big screen.
Although there are a few high-profile names involved. Chris Meledandri, the “Despicable Me” producer, was hired by DreamWorks and NBCUniversal to handle the project. Michael McCullers, whose prior credits include two Austin Powers films and “Boss Baby,” was given the assignment of writing the script. Considering that McCullers finished his work on “Shrek 5” back in 2017, what’s next for the film in 2022?
Shrek 5 Release Date
The Shrekian front has been quiet in recent years after originally being scheduled for a 2019 release. As reported by Cinema Blend, Eddie Murphy hinted at a 2020 release date for the long-delayed follow-up, but that was only an estimate. “Shrek 5” may be released on September 30, 2022, with a home media release apparently set for November of that year, according to Fandom. As a result of the global pandemic, it’s not clear how far into development “Shrek 5” has actually gone. Be prepared for the date to change.
There has been a shift in the releasing schedule of “Shrek” films since “Shrek Ever After,” which was released in 2007. New “Shrek” films were released every three years at the height of the franchise’s popularity, having been released in 2001, 2004, 2007, and 2010. There is some good news: the project hasn’t been canceled and is still in the works.

Shrek 5 Plot
Shrek 5 is a reboot, not a sequel, despite the title’s suggestion that it will be a continuation of the previous films. As far as the filmmakers are concerned, they’re not interested in returning to familiar territory. However, it’s unclear exactly how they want to restructure things.
According to Chris Meledandri, “the issue for us has been to find something that really does feel like it’s not just another film in a series of sequels.” As a counterpoint, the great producer notes that he’s still “nostalgic” for the previous characters and the vocal talents that brought them to life, but he also wants to move on. Mike McCullers mirrored these sentiments, describing the rebranding as “quite huge.” The plot, according to the scriptwriter, is also very “personal” to him, but he wouldn’t say what to expect from it.
For the time being, it appears that the story’s details are being kept under wraps. Fans of “Shrek” may expect something radically new, yet with a semblance of the original film’s spirit still present. Additionally, according to Variety, there are plans for a “Puss In Boots 2,” indicating that NBCUniversal has high hopes for this particular fairytale realm.
