Shrek The Third 2007 Production:-
Following the success of Shrek 2, a third and fourth Shrek movie, along with plans for a final, fifth film, were announced in May 2004 by Jeffrey Katzenberg: “Shrek 3 and 4 are going to reveal other unanswered questions and, finally, in the last chapter, we will understand how Shrek came to be in that swamp when we meet him in the first movie.
DreamWorks hired screenwriters Jeffrey Price and Peter S. Seaman (of both Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Doc Hollywood fame) to write the script of the film and Jon Zack, who wrote The Perfect Score, came on board as a consultant.
Unlike the first two films, the film was not directed by Andrew Adamson due to his occupation with The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Adamson was still involved as an executive producer and was giving advice approximately every four months on the state of the film.
Shrek the Third was instead directed by Chris Miller, a story artist on the first film and ahead of story on the second, and co-directed by Raman Hui, a supervising animator on the first two films. The film was developed under the working title of Shrek 3. By March 2006, the title of the film was changed to Shrek the Third.
According to Miller, the reason behind the title change Shrek The Third 2007 was because they “didn’t want to just sort of title it like it was just a sequel,” instead they wanted “something to make it stand on its own, give it its own personality and really try to treat it as a chapter in Shrek’s life.”
Hui also remarked: “It’s about Shrek becoming the new king of Far Far Away; the title sounds kind of royal as well. The film was originally going to be released in November 2006; however, in December 2004, the date was changed to May 2007; “The sheer magnitude of the Shrek franchise has led us to conclude that a May release date.
