When Po’s long-lost panda father suddenly reappears, the reunited duo travels to a secret panda paradise.
I am a big fan of the first Kung Fu Panda, which surprised the heck out of me by being as fun as it was (plus it introduced the word “squidoosh” into my already potent vocabulary). I thought KFP2 was ok, but forgettable. I’m hoping the series returns to form, but honestly the thing that worries me the most about it is that Dreamworks has it set for a January 29, 2016, release date. That’s not a place you release something you have confidence in; it’s a time you dump something hoping to make back a fraction of the production costs. We shall see.
