However, the wait has been long. There has been no release until date. There is speculation that at the time when Shrek 5 ought to have been released, another movie under Shrek’s umbrella got released instead. Hence, there was the shelving of Shrek 5 production to facilitate the making of the other film. Reportedly, the script for Shrek 5 is available and has been spoken about multiple times in interviews giving fans a glimpse of what to expect. There has been so much question about how the script’s final edit will look like all matters considered. The rumors appeared once again in 2019 about the making of the Shrek 5.

Shrek 5 Plot: What will happen?

Shrek 5 Renewed or Cancelled?
There has been stalling of the last part of the five-movie series production due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This stalling is in tandem with the production of other films as well in the entertainment industry.
