The web is abuzz with what might be the most ogre-sized leak of the year: a possible ‘Shrek 5’ release date! The rumor mill went into overdrive thanks to a LinkedIn resume screenshot from an intern claiming to have insider info on the much-anticipated sequel.
This young professional boasted about her stint at NBCUniversal, DreamWorks’ parent company, and casually dropped what fans have been clamoring for: ‘Shrek 5’ hitting screens in 2025. She detailed her involvement in the franchise, specifically in consumer product strategy—industry-speak for sneaking brands into the film’s universe.
The resume revelation spread like wildfire, and suddenly, the intern’s profile got a quick edit, erasing any trace of the ‘Shrek’ sequel. While NBCUniversal has stayed mum about ‘Shrek 5,’ hints have been dropped in recent projects related to the beloved ogre.
‘Shrek’ enthusiasts are on pins and needles, having weathered less-than-stellar reviews for the franchise’s recent entries. The accidental leak might just corner NBCUniversal into making a premature official statement.
Whenever ‘Shrek 5’ decides to swamp our theaters, one thing’s for sure—keep your eyes peeled for product placements that seem to be a priority for the studio’s fledgling marketers.
