Shrek 5 Confirmed For July 2026 Release, OG Cast To Return

We have the ability to contain our excitement for Shrek news — what we lack is the capacity! It’s been 14 long years since Shrek Forever After closed the book on DreamWorks' beloved green-eared franchise, but now coming off the back of the astonishingly great Puss In Boots: The Last Wish, the animation studio’s long-awaited fifth sequel has set a release date.
DreamWorks Animation has announced that Shrek 5 is officially in development and is set to release on July 1, 2026. Original Shrek stars Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, and Cameron Diaz are confirmed to return.

Antonio Banderas' return as Puss in Boots is not yet confirmed.
Shrek 5 will be directed by Walt Dohrn, who has previously worked on Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, and Shrek Forever After, which bowed in 2010 and earned $752.6 million globally. The film will be produced by Gina Shay and Illumination founder Chris Meledandri, with Brad Ableson serving as co-director.
The Shrek film franchise began under Jeffrey Katzenberg's direction with the 2001 picture, which was praised for its animation style and for playing with fairy-tale cliches. It centered around an ogre named Shrek (Myers), who falls for Fiona (Diaz), the princess of Far Far Away who has been cursed and imprisoned in the body of an ogre. Donkey (Murphy) gave comedic relief, sadness, and camaraderie to Shrek. The film grossed $492.2 million worldwide, not adjusted for inflation, and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
The announcement of Shrek 5 comes as the family box office makes a long-awaited comeback following the pandemic. Universal and Illumination's Despicable Me 4 is off to a strong start at the summer box office, while Disney and Pixar's summer tentpole Inside Out 2 is already one of the highest-grossing animated movies ever.
