"Shrek 4" and "Hoodwinked 2" On The Way!

by | April 2, 2007 | Comments

You can look forward to more CGI goodness from the jolly green ogre in the coming years, including "Shrek 4" (yes, you’re right, "Shrek 3" isn’t even out yet) and the mark of every Very Important Pop Culture icon — the televised holiday special.

The folks over at Pacific Design Images spilled the "Shrek" sequel news to Coming Soon, divulging that there is a "Shrek 4" in the works, but no details on story or when we might expect it in theaters. When asked, production designer Guillaume Aretos slyly pled the fifth: "I am going to use the Scooter Libby thing. I do not recall."

No matter, since the PDI crew shared more on another "Shrek" production — one that we’ll for sure see shortly. A very special half-hour "Shrek" show is in the works ("Shrek the Halls") to be broadcast on ABC this December; expect familiar "Shrek" regulars (and a few new ones) to celebrate holiday traditions in their own quirky, fairy tale ways.

More excitingly, "Shrek the Halls" promises to continue storylines that will arise in "Shrek the Third," which is due out this May.

Art Director Peter Zaslav also told CS that we’ll have ample opportunity to watch "Shrek the Halls" for many seasons to come: "It’s actually going to be on for fifteen years every Christmas. That’s the plan."

Meanwhile, in other CGI sequel news, Variety reports a second "Hoodwinked" is on its way. The follow-up, already titled "Hoodwinked 2: Hood Vs. Evil," will be helmed by longtime animator, first-time director Michael Disa (whose animation credits range from 1992’s "Cool World" to 2005’s "Pooh’s Heffalump Movie"). Pic is scheduled for a 2008 release.
