New poster of “Kung Fu Panda 3” has been released, showing Po eating dumplings and stretching his legs between two pillars, according to Coming Soon.
In the new poster, Po appears to be finding a balance, and can be seen holding a dumpling between the chopsticks. A group of pandas can be seen looking at him in a shock.
The new film will see Po reuniting with his long lost father Li voiced by Bryan Cranston. He will be shown going to a secret Panda village and meeting the other pandas. Things will take a turn when a supernatural villain Kai will sweep across China and pose a threat to Kung Fu masters. Po will train his new panda friends to fight Kai.
"There is great joy. Lo and behold, there’s a secret panda village," Jack Black, who will return to voice Po, told USA Today. "There’s intense rejoicing as I am reunited with my people. There are even cute baby pandas. Those guys are going to be the life of the party, for sure."
Po will also meet a female panda, and he will reportedly feel awkward around her. According to Black. Po will be “freaked out” to see a female panda.
The film will also feature some promising locales as revealed in the previously released concept art. The panda village has been reportedly created keeping Sichuan, China in mind.
“We used [Sichuan] as a jumping off point for what you saw at the very end of the second film, and then we kept drawing from that experience. We try to experience this through Po’s eyes, so we want to make it really special for him,” production designer Raymond Zibach told Entertainment Weekly.
“Kung Fu Panda 3," directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and Alessandro Carloni, will release on Jan. 29, 2016. Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu, David Cross, Bryan Cranston, Rebel Wilson, and J. K. Simmons will also return to lend their voices.
