DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda 3 is heading home for the holidays in this new international trailer, which features more pandas than you can shake a bamboo stick at. Look, if you’re a fan of DreamWorks Animation’s usual fare, you know what you’re in for with this third installment of anthropomorphic animal martial artists. The Kung Fu Panda series is, in my opinion, nestled somewhere between the How to Train Your Dragon and Shrek films, thanks in part to its epic mythology and funny frontman, but held back by DWA’s penchant for toilet humor and immature jokes. It’s a kids film after all, and the little ones are sure to eat it up.
Kung Fu Panda 3 opens January 29th and features the voices of Jack Black as Po, Bryan Cranston as his father Li, Angelina Jolie as Tigress, Jackie Chan as Monkey, Seth Rogen as Mantis,David Cross as Crane and Lucy Liu as Viper, with Dustin Hoffman reprising his role as Warrior trainer Master Shifu, and J.K. Simmons as the villainous Kai. Kate Hudson, James Hong and Randall Duk Kim also star.
