DreamWorks Animation’s ‘Kung-Fu Panda’ was more successful than they’d ever hoped it would be, it introduced us to everyone’s favorite animated panda, Po, and his team of fellow martial artists Tigress, Mantis, Shan, Monkey, Viper, and Masters Shifu and Oogway. The first film followed Po’s transformation from an ordinary panda working at a restaurant to the Dragon Warrior, a legendary warrior in the movie’s lore.
Over the span of three movies, Po and his friends battle fierce enemies in order to save their neer and deer, and each movie has shed light on different character arcs as it progresses. With Kung-Fu Panda 3 released four years ago, fans of all ages are eager for the fourth installment of the movie to come out. Here’s everything we know about Kung-Fu Panda 4 so far:
