Shrek 5 will completely reinvent the series

McCullers said that going into the film, which will be the first Shrek movie under Universal’s banner, they wanted to change things up. DreamWorks, the studio Shrek films are created in, was sold to Universal last April for close to $4 billion. The team behind the Shrek movies saw that change in ownership as a sign that it was time to reinvent what people knew about Shrek.

“I imagine they’re particularly interested in it stepping up and actually figuring out the future of the franchise in that way on the corporate level,” McCullers said. “Reinvention was sort of called for. There’s been four movies and a lot of material, so the characters are pretty beloved and they’re great characters, but you also have to think of a pretty new take at that point.”

Shrek 5 was confirmed by DreamWorks last July. The last Shrek movie, Shrek Forever After, was released in 2010. It’s unclear if Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy will return for the new film, but they were all a part of the fourth film.

Shrek 5 is slated to be released in 2019.

I feel like they've exhausted all sensible points of continuity already.....

Nowadays, every movie is a "franchise" or "universe" so that the idea can never be exhausted. The dead horse can always use a bit more beating.

The whole reason we liked Shrek is because it was a parody movie that made fun of everything. Now, its making a 5th movie, ignoring the reason it was made in the first place.

We watched the 2 newest Shrek's last month. I bet most of you didn't even know there was a 4th one in 2010, I certainly didn't. Good thing it was taglined "The Final Chapter" since they are doing a 5th one.

I can already hear you all, 'They made a Shrek 4'?
Yes they did and it's delightful.

This is the same guy who trolled Emoji Movie so hard that Sony invited him to the premiere.
