Fresh from the SDCC
(that’s San Diego Comic-Con
to you and me) we’ve got word that DreamWorks Animation
is pressing forward with a second sequel for the Kung Fu Panda
Released in 2008, the first Kung Fu Panda
was a bit of animated fun, taking Jack Black’s corpulent bear like thing and throwing him into some daring action scenes on his way to becoming the famed Dragon Warrior. The second film, which arrived in 2011, was a terrific follow up – with a better story, peerless animation and great action. We even decided it was our favourite film of the year

then watch the trailer!
Yesterday at Comic-Con
confirmed that they are moving ahead with Kung Fu Panda 3
, which is hardly surprising given the $1.2 billion haul of the first two instalments. Chief Creative Office for the company Bill Damaschke
was keen to point out that they have “10 movies in production and eight or nine in pre-production” so we won’t see KFP3
for a little while yet. They’ve got Rise of the Guardians
and caveman pic Croods
on the way before then.
We, jointly and severally, cannot wait!
