Above is an accurate reenactment of my reaction upon hearing this news. More Shrek is probably on the way, according to Variety, who cite Dreamworks Animation boss Jeffrey Katzenberg.
Sure, the franchise consisting of four feature films, a bunch of specials, a Broadway musical and tons of merchandising, has made billions of dollars, but the ludicrous premise of Shrek Forever After certainly made it clear they were running out of ideas, at least on the big screen, right?
Apparently not. Here's what Katzenberg has to say:
We like to let them have a little bit of time to rest. But I think you can be confident that we'll have another chapter in the Shrek series. We're not finished, and more importantly, neither is he.
