DreamWorks & Netflix’s Ready for More Kung Fu Panda Action July 2022!

19 Mar


The best news from this month for DreamWorks Kung Fu Panda fans is that Po’s adventures aren’t over. After three successful films, five standalone pieces and two series–one on network television and the other on Amazon–Netflix has its eye to continue the adventures with the lead in The Dragon Knight!

There isn’t too much information to reveal as some aspects are still being developed or are under wraps. All we know so far is that weasels are the primary antagonists in this upcoming series. Confirmed is Jack Black returning to the role instead of Mick Wingert who voiced the title character in Paws of Destiny. This actor also confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that it’s coming July 2022!

Story Synopsis:

When a mysterious pair of weasels set their sights on a collection of four powerful weapons, Po must leave his home to embark on a globe-trotting quest for redemption and justice that finds him partnered up with a no-nonsense English knight named Wandering Blade. Together, these two mismatched warriors set out on an epic adventure to find the magical weapons first and save the world from destruction – and they may even learn a thing or two from each other along the way.

Plese check the schedule for online event listing.

While part of the fandom in the Pacific Northwest will be be at Fan Expo Vancouver, other folks ’round the world can enjoy IGN Fan Fest. This online only event is set to highlight the best of what’s to come soon in the world of movies, television and gaming.

There’s a lot of material to announce and new information to update fandom. No single event, be it real or virtual, can cover it all, and those able to follow along to both get the best of both worlds. But while I’ll be at Fan Expo Vancouver, this tease also includes what’s next for the Hedgehog Speedster (pictured) with this latest version. I fondly remember seeing the first film while in the big city, enjoying thie antics of this animal (movie review here) on the big screen on an evening after the convention. Time flies, or has sped up since the pandemic, and instant fans of this rodent are glad this release is on track for its April 8th release.
