Since 2005, the Madagascar series has become an entertaining movie series for children and adults alike with its humor, adventure, and unique story. The Madagascar series had its last release with the Spinoff movie Penguins of Madagascar in 2014. The next installment Madagascar 4 can be a great offering for anyone!

It has been more than a decade since we last saw our beloved Central Park Zoo animals on their adventurous journey. So fans also started campaigning for Madagascar 4 on social media and Twitter!

But, will they begin their new journey to a new destination anytime soon? Is there any news on the release of Madagascar 4? Well, read on to know more!

A little flashback

The Madagascar series started when four animals of the Central Park Zoo, namely Alex the Lion, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo, and Marty the Zebra, got stranded on an unknown island. All of the four have led a fulfilled and luxurious life inside the captivity of the Zoo. However, they become ship-wrecked on an unnamed island of Madagascar during their transportation to a new location. The animals initially bored due to their monotonous and captive lives, embark on a journey to return to the civilized society from that unknown island. They meet many other animals (lemurs) in their journey and visit different continents like Africa and Europe.

The last installment named “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” grossed nearly $750 million in the global box office after its release in 2012. It also gave birth to multiple TV shows and spinoffs like the Madagascar Penguins.

Will Madagascar 4 ever happen?

During the press release after the massive success of Madagascar 3, DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg had hinted about the initial green signal for Madagascar 4. In his 2010 interview with Empire, DreamWorks had plans for total Madagascar movies.

 In 2012, Anne Globe, worldwide marketing head of DreamWorks Animations, said, “It’s too early to tell. There hasn’t been a lot of discussion about that….”

The Co-director, Eric Darnell, also offered a positive future for Madagascar 4. As per his opinion, “Two things have to happen. The world has to want Madagascar 4 because if they don’t want it, it doesn’t matter what we do. And the other thing is even if the world wants Madagascar 4, we have to make sure that we have an idea that is incredible, great, and unexpected. Then, if the audience wants it and we have a great idea, we will see – maybe.”

Director Tom McGrath also wanted to return for the fourth installment of the movie in 2017.

Initially, the movie had a tentative release date of 2018. But, later, DreamWorks pushed the deadline back as their animation policy was changed for two movies only a year.

Since 2018, there is no news from DreamWorks or the directors. Madagascar is a valuable series for DreamWorks with more than $2 billion box office record for its installments. In 2017, Tom McGrath also hinted that he wanted the characters to return to the silver screen for one last time. But, he refused to comment on the status of the project.

At present, there can be two possibilities; either DreamWorks is keeping everything under wraps, or the movie is just its initial phase.

MisterHB reportedly claimed that the last installment of Madagascar 4 was scheduled for 2023! But there is no confirmation on this matter!

But, there is no more official confirmation for fans of the Madagascar series. Hence, we have to wait for some time to know what is really on the cards for our beloved character!

Possible story of Madagascar 4

DreamWorks CERO Jeffry Katzenberg had offered an initial storyline for the last movie Madagascar 4. As per his opinion, the lovable animals may return to New York Central Park Zoo and come to terms with their captive life. He had stated, “Ultimately they will come back to New York and they will come to terms with that, which they will do in this next chapter. Because of the way that movie concludes there’s probably one more for them.”

But, that was only some initial idea. As the movie series progressed, the four animals became a part of the circus crew and realized that they did not want to lead a captive life anymore. Hence, they may escape again in the wilds to lead an adventurous life!

Possible Cast for Madagascar 4

There is still no news on this matter. But, it can be said that the four main characters will return to the screen with Madagascar 4. Hence, Ben Stiller (Alex), Chris Rock (Marty), David Schwimmer(Melman), and Jada Pinket Smith(Gloria) will return to their usual roles. In addition, some other actors may also lend their voice to some new characters. But nothing is official now!
