DreamWorks Animation has announced that Jean Claude Van Damme (JCVD), Michelle Yeoh (The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor), and Victor Garber (Alias) are joining the voice cast of Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom. Last week we reported that Gary Oldman has also joined the cast. Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, David Cross, James Hong, and Dustin Hoffman are set to reprise their roles from the original film. Oldman is playing Lord Shen, a villainous peacock (that should be a band name but remove the “pea”) while Yeoh is playing a mystical goat named The Soothsayer. Van Damme will play Master Croc and Garber will play Master Thundering Rhino.
Oldman voices the character of Lord Shen (a peacock), the film’s formidable new villain while Yeoh brings to life the mystical character of The Soothsayer (a goat). Van Damme and Garber round out the cast as Master Croc and Master Thundering Rhino, respectively. The story will center on Po (Black) trying to find other pandas and his adventures along the way.
Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom is slated to hit theaters on May 27, 2011 and will be in 3D (per DreamWorks Animation’s mandate).
