It's Not Ogre Yet: Dreamworks Announces 'Shrek 5'

“The studio announced today that beginning in 2019, it will continue releasing at least two films per year, with the first couple being Shrek 5 and Shadows, the latter which was announced last year.

Dreamworks already has the following films on their release slate: Trolls (November 2016), Boss Baby (2017), Captain Underpants (2017), The Croods 2 (2017), Larrikins (2018), and How to Train Your Dragon 3 (2018). The 2019 additions seem to continue the trend of mixing established franchises with adaptations of children’s books and original concepts.

While Comcast agreed to buy Dreamworks in April for $3.8 billion, final decisions on the studio’s slate are still being made by Jeffrey Katzenberg, who remains the CEO and chairman of the company until the deal closes, which is expected to be sometime in the next month or two.”
