Which of these Shrek quotes is your favorite?
There are currently four Shrek movies in the franchise, with the 5th one scheduled for late 2019 or early 2020.
I did a little research, and it doesn’t appear to be canceled but is clearly taking longer than expected.
It has been so long since I have seen the first four, and since I am basically quarantined in the house with the kids for a while, now might be the perfect time for a refresher.

Do you have a favorite character?
My least favorite character is, of course, Farquaad, but for a reason, you might have missed!
Remember the scene where the three little bears are caged?
Shortly after that, there is a scene where Papa Bear and Baby Bear are crying, and Mama Bear is missing.
Later in the movie, we get to see the inside of Farquaad’s room…complete with a purple bow-wearing bear rug!
