Kung Fu Panda 3 is the third installment in a planned six-part computer animated film series franchise created by Dreamworks Animation. Now on production status, Kung Fu Panda 3 will be seen in theaters worldwide beginning December 23, 2015.
Directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson from a screenplay written by Jonathan Aibel and Glen Berger, the upcoming Kung Fu Panda movie stars Jack Black as "Po," Angelina Jolie as "Tigress," Seth Rogen as "Mantis," Lucy Liu as "Viper," David Cross as "Crane," Dustin Hoffman as "Master Shifu," Bryan Cranston as "Panda Dad," James Hong as "Mr. Ping," along with Rebel Wilson and Mads Mikkelsen in still undisclosed roles.
Kung Fu Panda 3 is a joint production venture between DreamWorks Animation and Shanghai-based Oriental DreamWorks. A third of the film will be shot in China while the rest will be done in the US. Filming will begin in August. Hans Zimmer will be providing the musical scoring. The film will be distributed by 20th Century Fox.
According to the studio's plot summary, Po as he continue on his legendary adventures of awesomeness will find himself having to face two hugely epic threats: one supernatural, the other a little closer to home. Guillermo del Toro, Kung Fu Panda 3 executive producer told Collider, "All I can say is the bad guy in the third is possibly the most formidable villain in the series..."
DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg in a talk with the press revealed more. He said, "Kung Fu Panda 3,the next story, is actually broadly more comedic. It's actually close to the first movie than the second movie. The second movie was dealing with Po's past and had dark elements to it."
