Kung Fu Panda 2 Opens Tomorrow

Jack Black was all over the morning shows yesterday promoting his new movie “Kung Fu Panda 2,” so I thought I’d help him out with a little blog post. The movie opens in theatres nationwide tomorrow, May 26th, in both 3D and 2D.

Jack Black returns as Po, the lovable Dragon Warrior Panda along with an all star cast as the Furious Five: Tigress (Angelina Jolie); Monkey (Jackie Chan); Mantis (Seth Rogan); Viper (Lucy Liu); and Crane (David Cross).  Also returning is Dustin Hoffman as the kung fu guru and Po’s mentor, Master Shifu, and James Hong as Mr. Ping, Po’s father and owner of the most popular noodle shop in the village.

The sequel to the animated comedy and 2008 Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated blockbuster “Kung Fu Panda,” is bigger and funnier than ever with an all new action-packed adventure for Po as he leads the Furious Five to fight a formidable villain (Gary Oldman as Lord Shen the white peacock) bent on taking over China and destroying Kung Fu with a powerful weapon unlike anything ever seen before.

The film is directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson, produced by Melissa Cobb and written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger. The music is by the great Hans Zimmer and John Powell.

A Huffington Post review called the movie “a terrific stand-alone film and a taking-off point for what could be a wonderful animated fable.” It should make lots of money this Memorial Day Weekend. So, if you want to catch a family-friendly film this weekend check out Kung Fu Panda 2.
