Remember Po? The funny Panda who somehow becomes the “destined” Kung-Fu master? Well, guess what? He is returning with his more humourous adventures, for the fourth time.
Kung Fu Panda was premiered in 2008. The movie is produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Paramount Pictures.
The movie turned out to be a huge success. The movie grossed over $20.3 million on its first day. It gained the number one position in the box office. It took over animation giants like The Shrek, leaving The Shrek saga behind.
The sequel, Kung Fu Panda 2, was released in May 2011. The second sequel, Kung Fu Panda 3 was released in January 2016.
Story Set up
Originally the story is about a Panda, “Po”. Po works with his adopted dad in a restaurant. Po is nothing like a kung fu professional would look like. He is very lively and loves to eat.
Apart from eating, he idolizes the Furious Five and plans to be like them one day. Po determines to learn Kung Fu from Master Shifu.
Po learns that there has been a prophecy about a panda who would become the hero and the savior of the village. Po somehow connects the dots of the prophecy to himself and determines to be the greatest kung fu master of all times!
Kung Fu Panda, for the 4th time?
Every single sequel of Kung Fu Panda has been a hit. The expectation for the fourth part is based on the announcement made by Dreamworks back in 2010. Dreamworks revealed that they are looking to release 6 parts of Kung Fu Panda.
Till now three parts have released. Due to the COVID pandemic, we don’t think about any development of the fourth part, but we can very well expect the movie to be released sometime in 2021.
