Eddie Murphy Talks 'Shrek 5′, Reveals Donkey Spinoff


Eddie Murphy returns to the world inspired by the fairy tale „Shrek.”

In An interview with Collider Released Monday, Murphy opened up about voicing „Donkey” in the franchise’s next film. „We started doing 'Shrek’ four or five months ago,” Murphy told Collider while promoting his latest „Beverly Hills Cop” installment, „I recorded the first act, we’ll do it this year, we’ll finish. It’s done. „

„There’s another 'Shrek’ coming out, and Donkey will have his own (spin-off) movie,” Murphy said, adding that he thinks „Shrek 5” will be released sometime in 2025.

A fifth film was announced last year, although Murphy’s original co-stars Mike Myers (Shrek), Cameron Diaz (Princess Fiona) and Antonio Banderas (Puss in Boots) have yet to confirm their involvement in the film.
