Kung Fu Panda Preview

The fine folks at Dreamworks and Paramount have just sent us over a cornucopia of featurettes for their film Kung Fu Panda, which hit theaters on standard screens and IMAX all over the country today. In the clips, which can all be seen below, they introduce us one-by-one to the lovable characters of the film and the actors who lent their voices to bring the characters to life.
