    With the Shrek franchise’s potential revival courtesy of "Puss in Boots: The Last Wish", buzz and speculation are rife in Tinseltown. It's been a decade since the dulcet roars of our beloved green ogre and the hilarious chatter of Donkey echoed across our screens. Yet, the ending of "The Last Wish" teases fans with promises of rekindled magic.

    Murphy's Enthusiastic Nod: "I'm All Ears!"

    Eddie Murphy, the powerhouse behind the lovable character, Donkey, in an exclusive with etalkctv, didn’t hold back his enthusiasm. "Oh, I would be absolutely open. If they came to me with another Shrek, I would do it in two seconds. I love Donkey." Murphy, unabashedly favoring his character, stated, "The donkey is more fun than puss in boots. I mean, I love Puss in Boots but he's no funnier than Donkey.”
