On Friday, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish opens in theatres, bringing back the iconic feline hero for his second spin-off film following first being introduced in Shrek 2. While the movie has been received incredibly well by critics and fans in markets where it has already debuted, Eddie Murphy was recently asked about the film and whether he'd ever return to the role of Donkey.

Speaking with Etalk, Murphy shared that he would do another Shrek and that he'd jump at the opportunity in "two seconds".

"I'd absolutely be open if they ever came with another Shrek, I'd do it in two seconds. I love Donkey. They did Puss in Boots movies, I was like, 'They should have [done] a Donkey movie. Donkey is funnier than Puss in Boots.' [Laughs] I love Puss in Boots, but he ain't as funny as Donkey. [Laughs] I would do a Donkey movie, I would do another Shrek, in two seconds."

Murphy most recently appeared in Netflix's You People, but would you like to see him back as Donkey in either a standalone spin-off film or an entire new Shrek?
