We’re getting brand new Shrek!

DreamWorks Animation have confirmed that a fifth Shrek film is on its way and we even have a release date - 1st of July 2026.

And not only that - the main original cast members are returning! A short teaser confirmed that Cameron Diaz, Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy are all going to be involved in the 5th installment of the franchise.

By the time Shrek 5 hits cinemas, it will be 16 years since the last Shrek film - Shrek Forever After - was released.

That’s not counting the two very successful spin offs the franchise had, the two Puss In Boots films released in 2011 and 2023.

And according to Eddie Murphy, his character Donkey is also going to get his own movie.

"I recorded the first act, and we'll be doing it this year, we'll finish it up. Shrek is coming out, and Donkey's gonna have his own movie. We're gonna do Donkey as well," he told Collider.

"So we're gonna do a Shrek, and we're doing a Donkey."

Now the question is: Will the follow up films also the get same amazing soundtracks as the originals?

Shrek 5 will be released on cinemas on the 1st of July 2026.
