It looks like “Kung Fu Panda 3” will not only see Po reunite with his entire Panda Family, but he may also meet the love of his life in the upcoming sequel. “Pitch Perfect 2” star Rebel Wilson will do voice work for Mei Mei, which some rumors claim will serve as Po’s love interest. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“Kung Fu Panda 3” will see the return of our well-loved Panda, Po (voiced by Jack Black), Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman) and the rest of the Furious Five – Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Viper (Lucy Liu), Mantis (Seth Rogen), Monkey (Jackie Chan) and Crane (David Cross).
“Kung Fu Panda 3” will also see the reunion between Po and his long lost panda family, including his own father, Li (voiced by Bryan Cranston). Fans may expect to see a heartfelt reunion take place, as Po previously thought that he was the last panda left in China.
Aside from the sweet family reunion taking place in the sequel to “Kung Fu Panda 2,” fans may also expect to see Po finally venturing out on the mystery of the female species. According to Rotoscopers, “Pitch Perfect 2” star Rebel Wilson will be voicing over for a female panda named, Mei Mei.
“Po’s a little freaked out, since he’s never been around a female of his own species. I don’t think he has game in that realm yet,” Jack Black said.
The outlet cited that “Kung Fu Panda 3” will NOT be a love story, but Mei Mei will be in an arranged marriage with Po, USA Today reported.
DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3” opens in theaters on Jan. 19, 2016.
