Kung Fu Panda 3 – Official Trailer #1 – Jack Black

kung-fu-panda-3 Kung Fu Panda 3. Yes, it wasn’t just enough of a threat to force the first two on us, it’s time for the return of lazy, irreverent slacker panda, Po (voiced by Jack Black). And now there’s the official trailer.

When Po’s long-lost panda father Li (voiced by Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston) suddenly reappears, the reunited duo travels to a secret panda paradise to meet scores of hilarious new panda characters. But when the supernatural villain Kai begins to sweep across China defeating all the kung fu masters, Po must do the impossible-learn to train a village full of his fun-loving, clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas.

Curiously, where the first two films were summer blockbusters, something’s definitely up about this third outing, since in the US it’s being released on January 29th, and the weird thing about release dates is that, unless you’re aiming for the Oscar season, Jan/Feb is the time of year to dump the movies you just want to forget about.

The film also features the voices of Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, David Cross, James Hong, Rebel Wilson and Dustin Hoffman.

In the UK, Kung Fu Panda 3 is out a little later, on March 11th, but at least that’s a week earlier than it was originally, and it’s also two weeks before Good Friday (yes, it’s earlier than usual next year).
