“Oh, as if these things happened!”. You probably won’t believe it, but this is exciting and good news if you are fan of the most “truly” enchanting ogre, excuse me, of the nicest ogre that fairy tales have not given us. Of course, we refer to Shrek, since the return of the story has recently been confirmed and our favorite characters will come with the original cast.
via the magazine VarietyChris Meledandri, creative partner of DreamWorks Animation, confirmed the fifth installment of the saga and said that he was very excited to have the original cast with which they began the project.
You look at what are the core elements that audiences have loved and you do everything you can to honor those core elements and you work hard to build story elements and new characters that take you to whole new places. The original cast is a big part of that.
In this way we will be able to hear in English the voices of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy as Shrek, Fiona and Donkey, respectively. In addition, Meledandri revealed that his initiative to bring a new installment to the cinema arose from the comments Murphy made when he said that he loved the character of Donkey and that he did not understand why he did not have his own movie.
On the other hand, there are those who say that a fifth film is not necessary, since they say that the third and fourth, although they “withstood merciless winds and infernal deserts”, did not meet the same expectations as the first two. Because of that, they fear that the new sequel will not come close to the phenomenon that we saw and experienced in 2001.
After 13 years of the premiere of the last installment, the producers have been in search of not letting the franchise die and the truth is that even when there is a possibility that it will not be a success like the first tapes, we are excited to think that we will return to see many of our favorite animated characters again.
It should be noted that Meledandri did not confirm details or dates, so we will have to be patient. In the meantime, you can enjoy the other four, or, well, the first two in case you didn’t like the last two so much.
