Shrek and Donkey are back for more shenanigans in Shrek 5, which hits theaters on May 5. It’s Shrek the icon. We said it there. The large green monster that won over everyone’s heart was the personification of early 2000s culture, fairytale-core, and loving oneself if ever a character was so universally recognizable. Putting something date for Shrek 5 is now imminent.
It’s surprising how difficult it has become to see the Shrek films in order because the series has grown since 2001 and has given rise to other spin-offs and shorts! Thank goodness, the sequel to one of the greatest comedic films ever produced may not be as far off as we may believe. Let’s look forward and check yourself before you Shrek yourself.
Shrek 5 Release Date
An insider has revealed that the release date of Shrek 5 is set for sometime around 2025. All of this started when an employee of NBCUniversal put the movie on her LinkedIn page with the release date stated as “2025.” After that, it was swiftly taken down, but not before a horde of fans seized onto the announcement.
On April 4, 2023, it was revealed that Dreamworks was working on Shrek 5. Technically, it has been in development since 2017, but when the epidemic struck the industry as well as the rest of the world work rapidly came to an abrupt stop.
Shrek 5 Cast
Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, and Cameron Diaz, the original cast members, are reportedly in talks to reprise their roles in Shrek 5. The most significant query around this upcoming Shrek film is if DreamWorks and Illumination will be reuniting the original cast from the best films in the franchise in addition to adding new actors to the cast. The official Shrek season five cast is listed below.
• Mike Myers as Shrek
• Antonio Banderas as Puss in Boots
• Eddie Murphy as Donkey
• Cameron Diaz as Princess Fiona
• Julie Andrews as The Queen
• Conrad Vernon as Gingerbread Man
• Cody Cameron as Pinocchio and Three Little Pigs
• Christopher Knights as Three Blind Mice
• Aron Warner as Big Bad Wolf
Shrek 5 Plot
Though the Ugly Duckling would be a surprising pick as well, we believe that the villain of Shrek 5 might be either the Wicked Stepmother or the Evil Queen. Given the other well-known fairytale antagonists from history, we would most likely bet on an Evil Queen, a witch, or a sinister stepmother to lead the antagonistic charge in this one.
The fact that they haven’t done this already seems ridiculous. But Shrek 5 might possibly go in a different direction. The Ugly Duckling story, in our opinion, would make a compelling antagonist tale and provide the DreamWorks character design team a chance to show off their talent for the macabre. Should everyone find you ugly and make fun of you for it, you may also end up as one of the greatest villains in films.
Where To Watch Shrek 5
When Shrek 5 comes out, it probably will have a big theatrical release. There are multiple Shrek films available on some of the top streaming providers. While Shrek the Third and Shrek Forever After don’t have a streaming home, they may be rented or purchased digitally on Amazon Prime along with other movies. In the USA, Shrek and Shrek 2 are accessible on Hulu and Peacock.
Shrek 5 Trailer
If all goes according to plan, we predict that a Shrek 5 teaser will emerge in early 2025. In other words, until the animation and vocal are finished, nothing will be visible.
