    That's pretty cool! :)  I'm into Chinese folktales and legends so this will be intresting if Kung Fu Panda 3 has more Chinese roots then before.

    Too bad such a joint effort with the Chinese hadn't happened with The Last Airbender movie.

    I thought the ending of KFP2 pretty much indicated a third one was being made.

    When was the last time anyone used 'Oriental' to describe anything of an Asia-Pacific extraction?

    Must be an American thing, in the UK Oriental is used to describe Chinese/Japanese/etc whereas 'Asian' normally means Indians/Pakistanis/etc.

    On topic... uh whatever.

    I thoroughly disliked Kung Fu Panda.

    I felt it was a fortune cookie representation of China, and the most galling thing, was that Villain guy, who has spent his entire life training and aspiring to be the Ultimate Badass would have been the first one to realise the message of the Dragon Scroll.

    That would be Tai Lung.
    While he was a badass then I must agree with you on your point with the "Dragon Scroll".

    He should have read the scroll, realised that the power of the 'Ultimate Warrior' comes from within (whups, spoiler) looked at the entire Secret Seven (or whatever they were) that he SINGLEHANDEDLY decimated, had an epiphany, realised that now he had attained his goal of being the best, was it really worth it?

    He then should have walked off into the sunset putting right all the things that had once gone wrong, hoping each time that the next leap... uh.

    Well anyway they could have done this, and then Po becomes a great cook, because not everyone can become a great cook, but a great cook can come from anywhe... uh.

    While I don't care for the first one to me Kung Fu Panda 2 is to me one of my favorite Dreamworks movies since they started CGI buisness and one of the best sequels I've ever seen.

    It was fun, it was colourful, the animation was gorgeous, it had some of the best coreografed action scenes in a kids movie and while the story was a bit clishe it hit just the right amount of heart strings to make me feel attached to the characters and all in all was just a great ride.

    And come on it had Gary Oldman as a villain you can't go wrong with that!

    Freaking yes. Lord Shen was a surprisingly "deep" villain character for a kids film.
    Hopefully they'll come up with someone at least as decent for the third film.

    Really? A THIRD one? I was amazed they managed to come up with a plot for a sequel, although admittedly that was one of the better sequels in recent years.

    I think M. Night Shamalamadingdong is much more to blame than not having an entire culture be involved in THAT train wreck, since he wrote the script AFAIK and pretty much turned it into a mess similar to the play in the "Ember Island Players" episode.
