‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Release Date Deferred To March; Movie Adds New Cast, To Show A Sichuan-Based Panda Village
It has been over four years since “Kung Fu Panda 2,” one of the best outcomes of the efforts of DreamWorks Animation, hit the theaters. Now we all are eagerly waiting for “Kung Fu Panda 3,” which is going to be the combined efforts of DreamWorks Animation and Oriental DreamWorks. Earlier, the release date of the third installment was Jan. 29, 2016, but unfortunately it has been postponed to March 11, 2016.
According to Female First, there have been some new additions to the cast of “Kung Fu Panda 3” like Oscar-awarded J K Simmons, Kate Hudson and Bryan Cranston. A trailer released over a month ago revealed the voice of Cranston for Li, the long lost dad of Jack Black’s character Po.
The trailer highlights the sudden reappearance of Po’s lost father, Li, which surprises the son when the dad utters “I’m your father.” The movie will show the reunion of father and son after a long period of time and both of them will travel to a secret paradise to meet several new pandas.
The climax in “Kung Fu Panda 3” is believed to be then when a new villain named Kai (voiced by Simmons) sweeps across China with an objective to defeat all the Kung Fu masters. As a villain, Kai will be represented as invincible by any single powerful panda even like Po. The rumors state that Po will train the pandas in the village and make a powerful army of Kung Fu pandas.
The buzz surrounding “Kung Fu Panda 3” reveals that Kai will be completely different from his predecessors, hence, he is called as the first supernatural villain in the franchise history. He is said to have large horns and equipped with leather armor. Kai will not only challenge Po, his presence will effect lot of furious warriors like Master Shifu, Monkey, Tigress, Crane, Mantis and Viper.
Li and Po’s main challenge is to destroy Kai and save the panda community from his conspiracy, Christian Post reports. The 2016-movie “Kung Fu Panda 3” will reportedly feature a very beautiful and attractive Panda village based in Sichuan, China. Raymon Zibach, the production designer, had visited China for accumulating the motivations for the move.
