Shrek 3 & 4 in the Works
DreamWorks principle Jeffrey Katzenberg announced at the Cannes Film Festival that work has already begun on SHREK 3 and SHREK 4. Katzenberg said that after the first film the studio worked out the story of Shrek and the unanswered question left open in the original. SHREK 2, which hits theaters on May 19, 2004, answers the issues surrounding how Princess Fiona was left in the tower and how her parents would react to Shrek as her husband. The third film will address issues not yet announced, but the fourth installment Katzenberg says will deal with why Shrek came to live in the swamp in the first place.
