DreamWorks Animation boss hints at Shrek 5
DreamWorks Animation is planning a new Shrek outing, it seems...
Rarely has a franchise fallen from creative, inspired genius to production line fodder in the manner of Shrek. Across three decreasingly impressive sequels, and a Puss In Boots spin-off, DreamWorks Animation didn't quite kill the golden goose, but it certainly plucked a few too many feathers than were healthy for it. The films weren't terrible by the end, but they were a far way from special.
Last we heard, there were still plans for a sequel to Puss In Boots, although things have been quiet there for a while. But now, DreamWorks Animation boss Jeffrey Katzenberg has suggested that another big screen outing for Shrek is in the locker.
Talking to the Fox Business Network, he said that "we like to let them have a little bit of time to rest, but I think you can be confident that we’ll have another chapter in the Shrek series. We're not finished, and more importantly, neither is he".
Whether that's an outright Shrek 5 remains to be seen. But with DreamWorks partnering on a new Far Far Away Adventure attraction in the UK that's set to star Shrek and open next year, it looks like the firm's biggest franchise to date is set to return.
