When a few new Kung Fu Panda 3 images surfaced the other day, I assumed that meant a trailer was on its way. Well, one was, but it’s a Chinese one. This time around, the adventure kicks off when Po’s (voiced by Jack Black) long lost father reappears. The pair travels to a secret panda paradise and meets a bunch of new characters. When the supernatural villain Kai starts to take out the kung fu masters, Po has to turn a whole village full of clumsy pandas into Kung Fu Pandas so that they can stop him.
Again, this isn’t an English-language trailer so it’s tough to judge the quality of the material, but it’s still nice to get a look at what Kai is capable of. You can catch him in action in the Chinese Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer for yourself below. The film is due in theaters in 3D on January 29, 2016 and also features the voices of Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, David Cross, James Hong, Randall Duk Kim, Bryan Cranston and Rebel Wilson.
Here’s the official synopsis for Kung Fu Panda 3:
In 2016, one of the most successful animated franchises in the world returns with its biggest comedy adventure yet, KUNG FU PANDA 3. When Po’s long-lost panda father 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!
