Eddie Murphy has confirmed that recording sessions for Shrek 5 have begun, and there’s a Donkey spin-off happening too.

Shrek is one of the most successful animated film franchises in history. With four films and the Puss In Boots spin-offs collectively grossing $4 billion, it is perhaps no surprise that Shrek 5 is on the way.

What is a surprise is how long it is taking to make. The last instalment, Shrek Forever After, was released in 2010 (although the last two Shrek films – while successful – were received nowhere near as well as the first two).

Now, 14 years later, production on Shrek 5 appears to be underway. Not only that, but once it is finished, work will begin on a Donkey spin-off film.

Eddie Murphy confirmed as much during an interview to promote Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F, the incoming fourth instalment of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, which streams on Netflix from the 4th July.
