Shrek was first released as a parody of a fairy tale and now fans are asking for Shrek 5’s release date. As you might know, Shrek completely owned the box office during the 2000s, making it a classic film for Gen Z.
Unfortunately, Shrek Forever After was labeled as the final movie back in 2010, but when did official announcements stop the fans from wanting more? However, we have a solid reason for asking for Shrek 5 because it looks like it is on the planned list of the movie makers.
All Shrek movies were a blockbuster during the time of their own releases. The successful animation franchise has never stopped gaining more and more fans and hit the screens with many reboots, sequels, and spin-offs in theaters.
Today’s question is, is there a Shrek 5 movie on the horizon for the fans? Let’s check out the release date and characters of Shrek 5 below.

Shrek 5 Release Date
The last time we saw a Shrek movie was with Shrek 4, which was released in 2010, and there seems like no release date has been established for Shrek 5.
There are rumors that work on Shrek 5 has begun in 2016, but it has been 6 years since then. The first release date that was found suitable for Shrek 5 was 2019, but it has been pushed back for various reasons. Now we are expecting it to be published in late 2022, between September and November, but there is not a clear date.
You might know Michael McCullers from some of the classic animation movies because he is the writer behind ‘The Boss Baby’ and ‘Austin Powers’. He also worked on the script for Shrek 5 and assured its completion in 2020, but as you see, there is no new Shrek movie to watch.
Shrek has some very interesting characters that are ready for us to explore and look deep into, and some of them managed to steal the hearts of many viewers. We will talk about some specific characters from Shrek below, and we are expecting to see them in Shrek 5, namely Shrek, Donkey, and the Dragon.
If you are up to date with the movies, it is very possible that you know the characters we will talk about below, but still, they are worth talking about at every chance.
Some may believe that “The French Angel” who rose to prominence as a wrestler in the 1930s and 1940s influenced Shrek’s animation and the human form of the ogre.
Shrek is a green ogre with bald skin and has brown eyes. When he consumed a potion which was referenced from Harry Potter called “Happily Ever After Potion”, he turned into a human, having short dark brown hair and an attractive appearance compared to his ogre form.
Dragon from Shrek
The dragon from Shrek was tasked with protecting Princess Fiona in her remote palace where her family and friends locked her up. The dragon soon falls in love with Donkey with an unexpected twist and tries to keep him at her side all the time. The dragon from Shrek is imposing and flirty, but she’s sick of being a babysitter for Fiona.
Donkey from Shrek
Probably the most beloved character From Shrek was the donkey. You might know him as a talking donkey who assists Shrek throughout the adventures he has in the movies and they have a very solid friendship. He’s a total chatterbox and does not stop talking, which makes him a very sincere character. The talking donkey isn’t put off by Shrek’s appearance and always supports him.
