Po is back in black or more appropriately white and black. In this third installment from DreamWorks animation we see that Po (Jack Black) is reunited with his long-lost father Li (Bryan Cranston) but only after the villagers sit through a long game of mind tennis. Po and Li fail to earn points or gain ground much to the chagrin of the locals. I guess both pandas are of the same blood. Like father like son so they say.
DreamWorks has made a good decision by setting Kung Fu Panda 3 for a January 29, 2016 release. By doing so they will circumnavigate the gaping hole that Star Wars VII – The Force Awakens will leave over Christmas and at the same time assure Panda 3 will see at least some box office revenue.
