It's been six (too) looooong year since we were blessed with a Shrek film but it looks like our prayers have been answered as our favourite green ogre is set to make a return to our screens!

Shrek 5 is set to debut in 2019, almost ten years since the last film in the franchise and it's got a groovy twist to it! Austin Powers writer and director Michael McCullers will be responsible for writing the film!

Speaking to The Hollywood News, directors Walt Dohrn and Mike Mitchell talked about what is in store the fifth Shrek installment. 

"They’ve got a pretty good story. It’s being written by Michael McCullers, who wrote all of the Austin Powers films. He came up with a really great idea that they’re exploring."

"There’s more story to tell there, and we’re ready to help tell it for sure." Walt said.

Although it's a bit of a wait, bring on 2019!
