The Shrek films are leaving Netflix in April and moving over to Disney+ in a move that has upset a lot of fans.

In the midst of the coronavirus madness we bring you yet more terrible news (for those of you in self-isolation anyway) because Shrek is leaving Netflix.

The streaming service announced that all four of the iconic animations would be taken down on 11th April, as the series migrates over to new platform, Disney+.

In a Facebook post (trying to make a joke out of what we can only describe as the worst case scenario ever), Netflix wrote:

'Somebody once told me that the Shrek film series is leaving on April 11th. So for all you sharp tools in the shed, it's time to return to the swamp for once last adventure.'

Heartbroken.

Fans are clearly also shaken by the loss of our big, green friend as the post has since received over 61,000 comments of dismay - and have taken to social media to share their opinions...

Do the right thing, Netflix, don't make this situation even harder.

Yours sincerely, everyone.
