For the past few days I have been all gung-ho for the upcoming animated flick Kung Fu Panda. Why? Because I have seen it and I was thoroughly entertained by it, that’s why. That is why I didn’t start this little “Kung Fu Preview” until the middle of the week — it wasn’t something that was even planned until I fell in love with the film.
Either way, we are now well into the week and the release of Kung Fu Panda on Friday is getting closer and closer. And in order to get you ready, I have prepared a little gallery of photos that shows off some of the beautiful animation work from the team at Dreamworks Animation. Check those out below.
Kung Fu Panda stars Jack Black as Po, a lazy panda who gets to live out his dream of becoming a kung fu master, only to find out that he must defend his village from the evil leopard Tai Lung, voiced by Ian McShane. But with the help of Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman) and the furious five (voiced by Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu and David Cross), Po will have to stand and fight… then sit and eat. The film hits theaters everywhere in standard and IMAX formats this Friday, June 6th.
