Paramount has released a full trailer for Kung Fu Panda 2 today. Opening May 27th, the film stars Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, Gary Oldman, Dustin Hoffman and David Cross. Being a fan of the first film, I’m looking forward to this one. The cast is great and Dreamworks is usually pretty dependable when it comes to animated films.
The first film received fairly positive reviews and it looks like Dreamworks is cooking up a similar movie with Kung Fu Panda 2. I’m excited to see how it turns out and how it will compete with the superb animated films we’ve been seeing recently, such as Toy Story 3, Despicable Me etc.
Check out the plot summary and trailer below.
Po is now living his dream as The Dragon Warrior, protecting the Valley of Peace alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, The Furious Five – Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey. But Po’s new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain, who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. It is up to Po and The Furious Five to journey across China to face this threat and vanquish it. But how can Po stop a weapon that can stop kung fu? He must look to his past and uncover the secrets of his mysterious origins; only then will he be able to unlock the strength he needs to succeed.
