DreamWorks Animation has released a few new posters for their upcoming Kung Fu Panda 2 which reveal a couple new characters. This time around, Po, now a Dragon Warrior, must team up with the Furious Five against a formidable opponent who wields a secret weapon that’s impervious to kung fu. A couple days ago, a new trailer and poster for the flick hit the web and now these new posters reveal the lead villain Lord Shen (voiced by Gary Oldman), The Soothsayer (voiced by Michelle Yeoh), Shen’s right hand man Wolf Boss, and Shen’s army of gorillas.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. Kung Fu Panda 2 features the voices of Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, David Cross, James Hong, Gary Oldman, Michelle Yeoh, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Victor Garber. It opens in 3D on May 26th.
Here are the images via Kung Fu Panda 2’s Facebook page:
Lord Shen is hyper intelligent, supremely lethal, and burns with ambition. It’s a combustible combination. He’s intent on wiping out kung fu and taking over China. That puts him on a collision course with Po and The Five.
The aged Soothsayer has been advisor to the Peacocks, rulers of Gongmen City, her entire life. She is wise and gifted with knowledge of the future.
The Wolf Boss and his pack were once guards in Gongmen City’s royal palace. Now he is Lord Shen’s most loyal servant, military strategist and trusted right paw.
The Gorillas are the muscle in Lord Shen’s army. If his evil schemes require any heavy lifting, they’ll be the ones doing it. Shen’s personal guard is made up entirely of these powerful (and powerfully large) brutes, who are honor bound to their master.
