Jennifer Yuh Nelson, who was head of story on the first Kung Fu Panda, is taking over the direction of the movie sequel Kung Fu Panda 2, which is officially titled Kung Fu Panda The Kaboom of Doom. Dreamworks will release Kung Fu Panda 2 next year on June 3, 2011. Jack Black and the other members of the voice cast will of course reprise their roles. Dreamworks announced that Kung Fu Panda 2 The Kaboom of Doom will be in 3D and will be released in digital and Imax theaters.
“The plot will involve a new villain with a weapon so powerful it threatens the very existence of kung fu. It is up to Po, Shifu, and the Furious Five to defend it; and along the way, Po must confront his past.”
The first Kung Fu Panda movie was a great movie: a funny plot, awesome characters and gorgeous animation. If Dreamworks can keep the same combination while going 3D, then the movie Kung Fu Panda 2 will be a hit for sure! And I’m quite impatient to see Jack Black let the panda inside him go wild again!
What about you? Impatient to watch the movie Kung Fu Panda 2 or do you think this sequel is not necessary?
