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:

More excellent news out of Comic-Con!!
DreamWorks confirmed they're making a THIRD Kung Fu Panda!!
Hell yeah!! Hai-Yah!!
We wonder what kind of Kung Fu Panda ride they can put in the new DreamWorks theme park?? LOLz!!
There's no word on whether or not they've invited Jack Black back to the party but, after the first two HIGHlarious films pulled in $1.2 billion, we seriously doubt they'd consider going in another direction!
R U stoked for Kung Fu Panda 3 or would you rather them try fresher material?

Yeesh! Close call, DreamWorks Animation!
The studio has just won a lawsuit from Terence Dunn, a self-described "writer-producer-teacher-philosopher" and the CEO of a company named Zen-Bear Ince., who pressed charges against them in June of 2010 for breach of implied contract on the Kung Fu Panda series when he asserted that the idea of a “spiritual kung-fu fighting panda bear” had been brought to them by him in November 2001 with the expectation that he'd be included in the project. Furthermore, he came up with the idea that bear was "adopted by five animal friends in the forest (a tiger, a leopard, a dragon, a snake and a crane), whose destiny is foretold by an old and wise sage, Turquoise Tortoise, and who comes of age and fulfills his destiny as a martial arts hero and spiritual avatar."
Despite all of this,

Jack Black looked more like a kung fu zebra than a kung fu panda as he left his West Hollywood gym in El Lay on Wednesday. Ha!
Despite arriving in much plainer black shorts, he left the gym in a goofy pair of black and white shorts while holding his gym bag and a sipping a drink.
We'll assume patterned shorts help the actor focus while getting his fitness on in the gym!
