Shrek 5 will be coming sooner than you think!  Eddie Murphy gave details and announced something else

The iconic ogre returns! Eddie Murphy, who has been voicing his beloved Donkey for years, confirmed the production of a new film in the “Shrek” series. The actor shared information about the progress of work on dubbing. But that’s not all – Eddie Murphy has one more great news for his fans!

The last Shrek movie was released almost 15 years ago. So, rumors about the creation of a new part have been heard for a long time. In an interview with “Collider”, Eddie Murphy, promoting his upcoming film “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F”, shared exciting news for fans of this beloved animation. He confirmed that a new Shrek movie is in production, and that Donkey will also have his own movie!

The success of animated hits is reviving interest in Shrek.

Collider’s Steve Weintraub spoke with Eddie Murphy about the recent successes of DreamWorks animated films, such as “Kung Fu Panda 4” and the newest “Cat in Boots”. Both films attracted huge audiences and reignited interest in the Shrek franchise. Kung Fu Panda 4 grossed $545.3 million worldwide, with the entire series achieving global revenues of over $2.3 billion. In turn, the latest “Puss in Boots” brought in $485.2 million, which is more than five times more than its production budget. Both films also received critical acclaim.

Eddie Murphy on “Shrek 5” and the solo movie about Donkey

Eddie Murphy revealed in an interview for Collider:

We started working on Shrek 4 or 5 months ago. I have already recorded the first part and we will finish the work this year. Shrek will return and Donkey will get his own movie. We will be doing both Shrek and Donkey

Murphy, who has voiced Donkey since 2001, explained plans for a solo film for his character. When asked if he was recording both productions at the same time, he replied: “No, not at the same time. We have started recording Shrek, I think the premiere will be in 2025, and then we will work on Donkey.”

Shrek – pop culture icon

The “Shrek” series, known for its brilliant humor, unforgettable characters and touching stories, has become an indispensable element of modern animation. Four feature-length films have given Shrek an important place in pop culture, and for many it is one of the best films they have ever watched. Murphy’s role has always been one of the brightest points of the series, so it’s no surprise that his hero will get his own movie.

The return of Shrek to the screens is great news for fans of this cult series. We are eagerly awaiting further information and can now start the countdown to the 2025 launch.
