Shrek 5 filming is expected to go on floor soon as the production will start to get completed before the scheduled release date. It has been more than 6 years when Shrek 5 was confirmed for the first time and yet there are no new updates on the animated movie. Everything changed when NBCUniversal brought Dreamworks for $3.8 billion and it changed the entire production timeline.
NBC has big plans for the Shrek franchise and it will take some time as they are taking an entirely different approach for the fifth Shrek movie. There are rumors that Shrek 5 filming will start very soon as the movie is set to have a 2020 release date and the production schedule is on the track as planned.
Shrek 5 Script, Filming and Production Schedule
Shrek 5 is rumored to have an exact premiere date of September 23, 2022, and the production will move as per their timeline. Fans were worried that the next Shrek sequel has been canceled but it is not true at all. In fact, Shrek 5 script is ready by writer Michael McCullers, who was hired to give a fresh new take on the Shrek franchise.

The pre-production work for the fifth Shrek movie can easily start now as the script is finished. Dreamworks will start filming for the animations once everything is loaded and the last thing will be voice actors recording their lines. Shrek 5 is also confirmed to be a reboot instead of a sequel but it will stay true to the original source and stories.
Shrek 5 Release Date and Plot Predictions
Shrek 5 Reboot was decided to connect with the present generation audience and there are several theories saying that the storyline will be set in modern times with all the gadgets and more. It could be a fresh take and there are so many possibilities of Shrek using technology, although nothing is confirmed at this point.
The team of animators at Dreamworks have revealed that they are currently working on ‘Puss in Boots’ sequel and will start the animation model of Shrek 5 once they are done and it will go through a redesign. Shrek 5 is all set to release in September 2022 as per the slots booked for a Dreamworks animated movie by the production house.
