Once upon a time in the year 2008, an animated film titled ‘KUNG FU PANADA’ was released, and took the world by storm. Oddly enough, prior to the film’s release, I will be honest and say I had ZERO interest. I’m a fan of Jack Black, as well as the rest of the cast, but there was something I felt was too superficial about it which made me believe it was simply JUST ANOTHER kiddie’s flick! Time went on, it was taken down from the theaters, and all I kept hearing was how awesome the film was. Months went on, and once its DVD was released, I bit the bullet, and decided to give this film my time. Not expecting much—as I usually approach most films—I watched it with an open mind, and I was blown away. It was one of the best animated films I had ever seen! Dipped with all sorts of comedic pacing, writing and cultural respect, what made me enjoy the film was the core of the story. What we, as a general audience learned, was that heroes come in all shapes and sizes, as Po (Jack Black) fulfills his destiny and became the ever-so-famous Dragon Warrior. I had some guilt seeing as I was pre-judging it, and when I allowed it to engrave itself within my system, I joined the millions who fell in love with the franchise!
With mention of a sequel in the works, I followed all sorts of news and articles pertaining to ‘KUNG FU PANDA 2’ wondering where they’d wind up taking the story. It has arrived and I had the privilege to have been invited to a press screening which quite frankly was one of the ones I was eagerly awaiting.
Stomping grounds once again, from DreamWorks Animation—the studio that brought you ‘HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON,’ ‘SHREK,’ and the Academy Award—and Golden Globe-nominated ‘KUNG FU PANDA’—comes the latest adventures of one of the most unlikely heroes ever to transition from noodle shop employee, to Kung fu master.
