As soon as DreamWorks announced kung fu panda 4Their fans on Twitter began demanding that they make a sequel to another beloved franchise. Shrek.
DreamWorks Animation recently announced kung fu panda 4 seemingly out of nowhere, despite the fact that a series, Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight was recently released on Netflix. the last movie, kung fu panda 3, was released in 2016. The film will likely see Jack Black return to the role of Dragon Warrior Po, as he recently reprized his role in the series. However, whether any of the characters in the series or kung fu panda 3 will return has yet to be announced.
as for Shrekthe last main line Shrek the movie was Shrek Forever Afterwhich was released 12 years ago in 2010. Sure, DreamWorks has released The cat with boots since, with a sequel Puss in Boots: The Last Wish It will be released this December, but it is not the same as another film in the franchise directed by Mike Myers.
One Twitter user, aptly named Shrek, simply tweeted the announcement with “okay but where’s Shrek 5?”
Another fan felt betrayed that shrek 5 was trending on Twitter without an announcement of a new movie, “When Shrek 5 is trending but not because it was announced.”
A fan on Twitter thinks that Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is probably the prototype of a new Shrek movie and if that does well at the box office, we might get a shrek 5. Twitter user Nicolas Baron said: “I wouldn’t be surprised if DreamWorks releases another surprise announcement early next year setting a release date for Shrek 5 if Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is a December box office hit.” . ”
Have all hopes of a shrek 5? No, not necessarily. shrek 5 was confirmed a few years ago with the movie seemingly moving from DreamWorks Animation to being made by Illumination, the company behind the My favorite villain franchise. We speculate that the COVID-19 pandemic may have stopped or slowed the development of shrek 5as it is a billion dollar franchise, lending credence to the idea that Puss in Boots: The Last Wish it could be a test.
Even if shrek 5 is not in active development, one thing is very clear: fans think it should be.
