A fifth Shrek movie has been confirmed.

NBCUniversal's $3.8 billion acquisition of DreamWorks Animation appears to be rolling along at a faster-than-expected clip and could close as early as late August, according to sources.

The Hollywood Reporter now reports that Shrek 5 (official title not yet known) has been given a due date of 2019.
