Katzenberg Says Only Two More Shreks

DreamWorks Animation plans to produce two more Shrek movies before shutting down the franchise, CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg told The Age this week.

“It’s a finite story, has been from the beginning and I think that’s part of its integrity, part of its strength, that we’re not thinking this up as we go” he says.

So what’s the point of the prequel approach? “Ultimately we will come back to understand how Shrek arrived in that swamp. We will reveal his story.”
