Kung Fu Panda 3 Direction: Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Alessandro Carloni
Voices: Jack Black, Bryan Cranston
Po, the portly panda protagonist, is back for another bout of kung-fu related antics in this third instalment (after the 2008 and 2011 editions) of the action-oriented franchise.
This time around, the furry critter (voiced once again by funnyman Black) must hone his martial arts skills to vanquish an enemy from the spirit world.
The jeopardy now comes from a megalomaniacal yak (dubbed in fearsome tones by the Whiplash Oscar-winner JK Simmons) who steals the chi (life force, for those not familiar with the Chinese lexicon) of legendary warriors in order to wreak vengeance on panda-kind.
Meanwhile our unlikely hero is reunited with his long-lost biological father (Cranston). Embarking on a quest of self-discovery, Po trains an army of fellow dumpling-obsessed fighter bears. —Hindustan Times
