“Kung Fu Panda 2”: A Fun Sequel

The Dragon Warrior, Furious Five, and Master Shifu return!

Summer seems to be sequel time at the movies. First, we saw “Pirates of the Caribbean 4.” Over the weekend we continued that quest for more of the same with “Kung Fu Panda 2.” Like with “Pirates,” all four of us enjoyed this animated adventure.

Po is out of control!

All of the talented voice actors return for the sequel, as Po the panda (voiced by Jack Black), who was raised by a goose, wonders about what happened to his real parents.

Po’s nemesis is an evil peacock.

In typical Po style, he didn’t realize that the goose wasn’t his biological father (really, Po?) until he had visions of his panda parents as he tries to take down an evil peacock named Lord Shen (voiced by Gary Oldman, aka Sirius Black). When it looks like Lord Shen might win the battle to conquer China, Po discovers he needs to believe in himself and be more mature if he wants to save his country.

This really is a fun sequel that parents can enjoy watching with their kids. See it and believe in the power of the panda!
