Madagascar 4: It has been a long time since we last saw the Madagascar team on screen. Ever since then, fans have been wondering if we will get Madagascar 4. The first movie in the franchise was released back in 2005, hooking everyone up. The movie followed four pampered animals from Central Park Zoo animals. These animals find themselves shipwrecked on Madagascar. This team then has to work on their inner thoughts in order to survive. The movies had appealing visuals and lovely characters, making it a big hit—the movies after it became just as big hits. Now the elephant in the room is, What is happening to Madagascar 4? Here are all the details about it-
Madagascar 4: Is It Happening?
The third movie of the Madagascar series released in 2012 and was one of the biggest successes for the production company. After that, Dreamworks kept the series alive after they released a spin-off- Penguins of Madagascar in 2014. Later the same year, the production company confirmed that Madagascar 4 is happening. The movie was supposed to release in May 2018. Later on, the plans changes when Dreamworks Animations altered its policy for two movies a year. It has been some time, and there has been no official word from the creators about what is happening to the show. We can assume that the movie is still under development. We can be hopeful that the creators will announce a release date for the movie soon.
What Could Be Coming Next?
There isn’t a lot of information on what could be happening in Madagascar 4. However, we do have some information on the fact that this will be the last movie in the franchise. The latest and the third movie of the series- Madagascar 3, ended with the whole gang joining the circus. They do it because of the realization that they didn’t want to be in captivity anymore. The fourth movie might see the gang moving back to Africa. Since we do not have a solid update, it is all still not sure. We must get updates about the movie soon.
Will It Ever Happen?
Right now, we don’t have enough evidence that proves that Madagascar 4 is happening. However, we do know that the franchise is a huge business and is very valuable. The movies so far have been able to bring about 2 million dollars for the company. This is excluding all the Tv and video games, spin-offs, and merchandise. So, there still a lot of hope that Madagascar 4 will be coming. Yes, it has been some time since the third movie released, but fans had to wait for Toy Story 3 for 12 long years, so this is possible too.
In an interview in 2017, the director of the series- Tom McGrath, said that they didn’t have anything to announce yet, but he hopes that the movie will happen. We hope the same. It will be fun to watch the whole team come back one last time. We will keep passing on all the updates about it as we get it. So, you keep checking this space.
