Kung Fu Panda 2 returning characters 570x4151 Kung Fu Panda 2 Teaser Trailer

The cuddly but deadly black and white star of Dreamworks’ Kung Fu Panda, Po (voice of Jack Black), will be back and ready for more (cartoonish) martial arts action next summer in Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom.

An official synopsis for Kung Fu Panda 2 was unveiled this past weekend, along with a teaser trailer, which moviegoers who checked out Dreamworks’ latest animated pic, Megamind, may have gotten to watch in all its big screen, 3D glory.

Kaboom of Doom finds The Dragon Warrior himself, Po, working alongside the Furious Five – Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Monkey (Jackie Chan), Mantis (Seth Rogen), Viper (Lucy Liu), and Crane (David Cross) – and his master, Shifu (Dustin Hoffman), to defend the Valley of Peace against a villainous figure (Gary Oldman) who intends to wreck havoc via the titular weapon. Lots of slo-mo fight sequences and fat panda jokes will likely ensue thereafter.

2008′s Kung Fu Panda was a fun, fast-paced adventure for the whole family, which paid homage to classic Kung Fu cinema and demonstrated Black’s talent for voice work (something he might want to stick with doing more often – see the Gulliver’s Travels Trailer #2 for proof). We have high hopes that the sequel will be of a similar vein.

Check out the Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom teaser trailer below:

While the Kaboom of Doom teaser doesn’t contain any actual footage from the followup, the quality of animation looks to be an improvement from the 2008 film. Computer animated fare generally looks decent in the third dimension and the Kung Fu Panda sequel should be no exception – especially since it’ll feature a number of scenes in which characters leap and fly through the air (and off the screen, in 3D).

Next summer will mark the arrival of two 3D followups to successful animated pics from years past (Kaboom of Doom and Cars 2). We’ll have to wait and see which one turns out to be the more popular title at the box office. Anyone care to wager a guess?

Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom arrives in 2D and 3D theaters in the U.S. on May 27th, 2011.

  1. I see no reason not to like this. I just hope they don’t run it into the ground. 3 tops and no more. :D

  2. KUNG-FU STARING CONTEST!!………………………………………………………………You guys look great by the way. Lol.

  3. Yes my thater cracked up! I love kung fu panda!

  4. I think that Kung-Fu Panda 2 will top Cars 2 in sales… will it be a better movie? Probably not.

    • i didnt really enjoy cars…so i think kung fu panda will surpass it!

  5. Love it.

  6. I will use that now. If my stomach rumbles, I will claim it was my fist.

  7. I knew as the credits of the name rolled over it would say ………………………3-D, so shocking!

  8. Hahahahha!!! For some reason I can’t stop laughing. Staring contest FTW!!!

  9. Cars was the worst thing Pixar have ever done but my nephew was obsessed with it so meh.
    Kung Fu Panda was the first example of something awesome coming out of Dreamworks (Not a Shrek fan). Kung Fu Panda will be better but I figure Cars will likely be the bigger money maker anyway…
