Shrek characters including Puss in Boots will be rebooted by the studio named Illumination Entertainment for the next generation of viewers. Illumination was responsible for the very popular animated movie, Minions.

According to Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri, though their studio is tasked to revamp the storyline and animation of Shrek, he would prefer to use the original voice actors.

He attributes the success of Shrek movies to the outstanding voice cast.

When you look back on those vocal performances they’re awesome, and while you certainly could make a case for a complete reinvention, I find myself responding to my own nostalgic feelings of wanting to go back to those characterizations.
