Eddie Murphy is ready to return as Donkey from Shrek

The actor believes that the studio should have created a spin-off about his character, and not about Puss in Boots.

Eddie Murphy is ready to return to the role of Donkey in the continuation of the animated franchise “Shrek” or its spin-offs. The actor stated this in a recent interview with Etalk:

“I would happily agree to voice it again. If the producers came to me with an offer to make a new “Shrek”, I would not hesitate over the answer for two seconds. I love the donkey.”

Murphy also noted that his character is no less worthy of his own spin-off than Puss in Boots, voiced by Antonio Banderas:

“You know, they made two films about Puss in Boots. But I think they should have released a Donkey movie instead. The donkey is funnier than Puss in Boots. I love the Cat, but he’s not as funny as the Donkey.”

When an interviewer suggested that Murphy use his connections to launch a Donkey spin-off, the actor responded:

“This is a Dreamworks Animation franchise. They must want to do it. Dreamworks, if you’re watching this interview and want to do a donkey spin-off, just give me a call. I’m ready, I can go and voice it again right now.”

At the moment, the latest picture in the Shrek universe is the recent cartoon Puss in Boots 2: The Last Wish . The tape was warmly received by critics and viewers, receiving 95% and 94% approval from them on the Rotten Tomatoes aggregator, respectively. According to the latest data, the project has already grossed over $334 million at the global box office, becoming the third most successful cartoon since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

The latest cartoon about the greenest ogre is Shrek Forever After , released in 2010. Last December, in an interview with Deadline, Banderas hinted that Dreamworks is currently working on a fifth Shrek movie.
