For the first two Kung Fu Panda movies, we believed that Jack Black's character Po was the last surviving Panda.
But we were wrong! The third installment of the hit animated franchise follows the clumsy bear protagonist after he has a chance run in with his estranged biological father Li, voiced by Bryan Cranston!
Li brings Po back to a secret panda village where the population has been in hiding, where meets a bunch of brand new characters — including an aspiring ribbon dancer panda Mei Mei voiced by the very funny Rebel Wilson!

Black explains that being reunited with his kind will be a bit of a shock for the character, but there is a lot of fun we can expect from the bear bunch! He said:
This is insane!
The basketball player formerly known as Ron Artest already dropped jaws when he changed his name to Metta World Peace while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers.
But now, he’s changing it again!
The 34-year-old is going overseas to play for the Sichuan Blue Whales in China, so he’s changing his name to The Pandas Friend.
Yes, you read that right.
This is so super stupid cute we can barely handle it.
The Taipei Zoo is the luckiest zoo in the world!
They have got the cutest, sweetest momma panda Yuan Yuan and she just loves her baby Yuan Zai to death.
She knows how to take care of her baby, like when it's the little fuzzball's bedtime!
She's a fussy little girl who refused to go to sleep when she was supposed to.
The little cub started running around their whole enclosure.
So mama Yuan Yuan had to chase her down and bring her right back to bed.
So super cute!
Check out the video (above) to see the cutest mama panda put her adorable baby to bed!
Who knew conserving a species could be so dang adorable???
Well the Auckland Zoo got a double whammy recently as the welcomed a pair of Nepalese red panda twins, and in addition to being the cutest thing we've seen since little Kayden first discovered rain, they're also helping to save their species!!
The population of red pandas in the wild continues to decline, so their birth was HUGE news! Oh, and did we mention they're freaking adorable?!?!?
The gender of the little cuties wont be determined until march, and that's when they'll also been named! But until then, we can just bask in their overall amazingness!
Ch-ch-check out more pics of the twinzies (below)!
We can't take the cuteness!
Bao Bao the giant panda cub greeted the media for the very first time at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington DC, and the event was just as amazing as it sounded.
The little cub will be 5 months old on the 23rd of January and is almost 17 pounds which, according to zoo officials, is right on track to where she needs to be!
In the video, you can see the little panda lady learning how to climb. She takes a tumble or two - but don't worry - pandas have a lot of fur and are made to take those tumbles!
If she were in any pain - her momma Mei Xiang would help her right away.
Mei Xiang munched on some bamboo while Bao Bao strutted her stuff before going to take a nap.
The public are invited to take a look at this black and white cutie on January 18th, but until then we'll be watching this video on repeat!
Check out the video… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Oh boy… we can already feel it bubbling up…
We're heading for a serious cuteness overload and we don't know if we can handle it.
Baby pandas are already some of the cutest things on the whole planet… so when they start doing adorable things, you gotta watch out.
For example, take this video of a baby panda riding a rocking horse - Srsly, just try watching the video without melting from all the cute.
This little baby panda lives at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in Sichuan, China, and honestly, we don't know how those researchers work at a place like that… we'd be too busy stealing pandas to get any work done! LOLz!
So, wanna see a baby panda riding a rocking horse?
How about two different baby pandas riding a rocking horse?? HAPPY 2014!
