Angelina Jolie loves the Kung Fu Panda movies more than any other film she has done because her whole family can sit down and watch them together.
The second Kung Fu Panda movie’s message of overcoming childhood difficulties has obvious echoes with Jolie who has adopted three children with Brad Pitt.
“It’s the film my kids love,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as saying.
“The nice thing about this story is we are really growing up with Po and finding out about human nature and the belief you can be anyone you want no matter what you look like or where you come from,” she said.
The actress was eager to share the movie and its message with her children.
“They absolutely loved it,” Jolie said.
“They laughed through the whole thing. I wondered if they’d ask me questions about it, but because ‘adoption’ and ‘birth mother’ and ‘orphanage’ are happy words in our home, they are used to discussions about it.
“They felt quite proud they were a little more like Po,” she added.
