Everyone’s favourite television panda is finally returning with Kung Fu Panda 4 movie. Although the film was all set for a 2020 release, it has now been pushed forward to 2021. This is due to setbacks caused by the ongoing pandemic.
Kung Fu Panda first came out in 2008. Mark Osborne and John Stevenson are the directors of this wonderful sequel. However, the producers, DreamWorks animation seems to have a lot on their plate currently that’s also holding them back from focusing solely on Kung Fu Panda 4. On the bright side, they never leave a movie open-ended so whenever the next movie comes out, it’s sure to be one complete storyline in itself.
The movie follows our beloved hero Po in his quests and adventures. It combines comedy and action to bring us the perfect blend for the plot and for some real entertainment. Po is a panda who was trained by Master Shifu to become a hero. Although that was the case at first, Po has his unique style of fighting, which seems to be effective in its way.
He saves his village and his friends from the wrongdoings of the evil characters throughout the series. The best part about Po is that even during the tensest fight scenes, Po manages to bring a smile on our faces with his out of the blue comedy and unintentional jokes. Po also happens to be too clumsy in general, which makes for a good laugh at times as well. There has been no confirmed plot for the next movie so it’ll be interesting to see what they come out with.

- Jack Black as Po
