Dreamworks has released the first official trailer for their hugely anticipated animated comedy Kung Fu Panda 3.Without delving too deep into the details, the trailer acts as a brief announcement signaling the return of the beloved characters. And as anticipated, the central plot will indeed focus on Po (Jack Black) reuniting with his father and discovering a hidden panda paradise.
So can Kung Fu Panda 3 give us another memorable animated father-son duo like The Lion King and Dreamwork’s own Madagascar franchise? It remains to be seen. But for now, this brief teaser has accomplished what it set out to do: Tease us.
Kung Fu Panda 3 also stars Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, David Cross, Jackie Chan and Dustin Hoffman with newcomers Bryan Cranston, Rebel Wilson and in a fit of timely casting brilliance, JK Simmons as the main villain Kai. It is directed by Kung Fu Panda 2 director Jennifer Yuh Nelson and Alessandro Carloni. It will be released, oddly, on 29 January 2016 (the previous films were both summer releases)
