BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
Po takes his father on an ill-advised tour of the Hall of Heroes in the latest clip from DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3.” What begins with a word of caution quickly turns into a care-free romp before ending (as these things so often do) with dry heaves.
Directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and Alessandro Carloni, the animated action comedy sees Po (Jack Black) reunite with his biological father (Bryan Cranston) and travel to a secret panda paradise. But when the evil spirit Kai (J.K. Simmons) sweeps across China, defeating all the kung fu masters and stealing their powers, Po must do the impossible: learn to train a village filled with his fun-loving, clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu pandas.
Opening Jan. 29, “Kung Fu Panda 3″ also stars Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Kate Hudson, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, David Cross, James Hong and Randall Duk Kim.
