Moving on to the cast. There has been no news about the cast of the movie. The trio of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy have been the first names for the cast. However, this might change in the upcoming movie because NBC Universal is planning to revive the franchise. So, they might want to change things completely.
A spin-off movie which was focused on Puss In Boots was released in 2011. A sequel titled, Puss In Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves, has been in the works since 2012. But, there has been no release date yet.

When the announcement news came in, the pre-production was already going on for the upcoming Shrek movie, and the script was finished in later months of 2016.

We still have little to no information on Shrek 5 so far but we do we have an update on the trailer release. Fans are very confused as to what kind of a movie it is going to be. What we know is that it is going to be a complete remake. The characters are likely going to be the same, while some are even expected to be seen in a completely different light, according to several reports.
We Are told that a trailer for the movie should drop by Summer 2019. The movie is expected to come out ‘at some point in 2019’ too, so it only makes sense if we get the trailer in the upcoming few months as well.
