Po is everyone’s favorite ass-kicking panda. By the time Dreamworks animation released the third Kung-Fu Panda movie, there was hardly a kid under 18 who didn’t know about the infamous Dragon Warrior and his team of Kung-Fu masters.
Po, along with Tigress, Mantis, Monkey, Viper, Crane, and Master Shifu has been on quite a few adventures to date. This includes 3 mainstream movies and even two spin-off TV shows, but now fans are in anticipation for the long-awaited Kung-Fu Panda 4, which honestly feels long overdue.
It has been 12 years now since Po and friends took down Tai Lung, and 4 years since they took down Bull Kai in the third movie, and now with the pandemic forcing everyone to stay indoors, a fourth movie would definitely be a treat for sore eyes.
Here’s what we know about it so far.
When is Kung-Fu Panda 4 Coming Out?
Although DreamWorks Animation had stated back in 2010 that it had plans for six movies in total under the franchise, the studio hasn’t yet given us any official updates or launch date regarding season 4, and the current pandemic isn’t helping anyone’s case either. The best we can do right now is to sit in our homes and pray that Kung-Fu Panda 3 wasn’t the last movie from the franchise.
