Kung Fu Panda 3 Trailer: Justice will be Served

Kate Hudson, J.K. Simmons and Bryan Cranston join Jack Black’s Po in the Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer.

It’s seems like only yesterday that a rotund Panda voiced by Jack Black stole our hearts in Kung Fu Panda. That was actually nearly 8 years ago! The sequel was nearly 5 years ago! Since then, it’s become one of the cornerstones of the Pixar canon. Needless to say, we’ve been waiting a while for the latest instalment. That wait has now come to an end (nearly) with the release of the Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer. But can the third chapter live up to the cherished memories  we all have of the Pixar franchise? There’s only one way to find out. Check out the Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer, courtesy of Slashfilm.

“Kung Fu Panda 3” Moves Up to January ’16

Who likes Kung Fu Panda? I will assume everyone said yes, and why wouldn’t they? It’s got Kung Fu, it’s got pandas, Dustin Hoffman and a badass Hans Zimmer score. So it was understandable when people got a little antsy when the release date for Kung Fu Panda 3 was moved from the end of this year to March of next year. It was an understandable move for Dreamworks Animation following the news that Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be opening on Christmas. Trust me, that media skirmish would not be adorable as you would expect, hence the move. But now there’s been another move in a better direction!

The Wrap is reporting that Kung Fu Panda 3‘s release has been shuffled from March 18th to January 29th 2016. So well only have to wait a month or so more than the original release date. Not bad right? It’s a testament to the bubbling confidence that’s coming out of Dreamworks as a result of the super positive response to their new extra terrestrial caper Home starring Jim Parsons, which has seen a worldwide take of 243 million so far.

This is good news considering that Dreamworks was struggling a little recently. But now they’re pushing the boat out and only giving Star Wars a month’s head start before Kung Fu Panda 3 comes a-kickin’.

The film will star Jack Black reprising his role as Po the panda, as well as new names Rebel Wilson and Bryan Cranston.

Are you ready for Kung Fu Panda 3 to bring the awesome in 2016?
