Will resonate with youngsters
Universal has also added that the film will have an updated storyline that will resonate with the youngsters of today. Reportedly, they will be able to relate to many things happening in the film.
Regarding the voice actors, Chris Meledandri, the creator of “Shrek 5” further added,
“When you look back on those vocal performances they’re awesome, and while you certainly could make a case for a complete reinvention, I find myself responding to my own nostalgic feelings of wanting to go back to those characterizations.”
So far, an official release date has not been announced as the film is still under production. Fans are hoping that the Shrek 5 will arrive in cinemas later this year.
