Kung Fu Panda is a 2008 American computer-animated wuxia comedy film produced by Dreamworks Animation and distributed by Paramount Pictures. John Stevenson and Mark Osborne directed it. The film shows a set or a situation of China populated with anthropomorphic animals. The protagonist of the show is shown as a bumbling Panda named Po, who is a Kung Fu enthusiast. Later on, it shows an evil Kung Fu warrior named Tai Lung( who escapes from prison) and Po, who then becomes the “dragon warrior” and is destined to defeat evil. The film in its initial stage was supposed to be a parody of Martial arts films, but later on, director Stevenson improvised his ideas and turned it into action and comedy based wuxia films. The computer animation involved in this film has been one of the complicated things that Dreamworks had to go through.
Kung Fu panda received not only positive reviews but became Dreamwork’s biggest opening for a non-sequel film and also became the highest-grossing animated film of the year worldwide.
Kung Fu Panda 2 – was released on May 26, 2011 (which was the first sequel to the movie).
Kung Fu Panda 3 – a second sequel was released on January 26, 2016.
Now, Po and his companions are all set to receive expansion, and the executive head of the Dreamwork’s production says that there will be a fourth film to the series. There were rumors that the 4th part would be releasing around 2018, which has now been delayed, and the date is moved to 2020. Since the film is confirmed in parts the central characters are assumed to return in the fourth part. The voices will be given by – Jack Black ( as Po Ping), Angelina Jolie (as tigress), Dustin Hoffman ( as Master Shifu) & Jackie Chan( as a monkey).
As officially, the dates aren’t confirmed, so it is quite difficult to discuss the plot and guess the release of the trailer date. But as per the concept, the film will follow the story from which it left and will show what Po does further.
