Ohhh, Look…The New Characters of ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’

Over the years, Dreamworks Animation has been pretty hot on the heels of Pixar and dare I say even going toe to toe with their last couple of films. How to Train Your Dragon was a huge hit and they have just been putting out higher and higher quality pictures. I think it’s safe to say they have found their groove. Personally I adore 2008’s Kung Fu Panda and am eager to see what Dreamworks can do to expand the story.

So what will Kung Fu Panda 2 have in store for us? From the looks of the images below, quite a lot! From ScreenRant, here are the first images of the new faces in Dreamworks Animations’ sequel Kung Fu Panda 2.

(From L to R:  The Soothsayer, Master Thundering Rhino, Master Storming Ox, Master Croc, Lord Shen, and Wolf Boss)

All the original cast is back for the sequel but head on over to ScreenRant for detailed info on the new characters and read their back stories. Some are quite interesting and will really help flesh out the story. I may not be on board for all Jack Black’s movies but so far his work in animated films have been hits in my eyes (yes all 3 of them:P). Can’t wait for this!!

Kung Fu Panda 2 is set for release on May 27th. What do you think? You ready to see Po and The Furious Five take on the the Ka-Boom of Doom??
