Kung Fu Panda… 2!

Kung Fu Panda

Dreamworks’ Kung Fu Panda has raked in a much-better-than-expected $160 million domestically (and counting), and it’s sure to do even better on DVD. (It will certainly get my $20; I loved it.) So it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that the Animation Guild’s blog brings us word that “a story crew has started early work in Kung Fu Panda, the Sequel, even while animators are hand-drawing new material for the DVD of Kung Fu Panda, the original.”

On the Triple Feature (episode #75), I mentioned that this is one of the few movies I really hoped would get a sequel — hopefully one where the Furious Five features more prominently and we get more of the originals’ absolutely fantastic action sequences — so this is very, very welcome news to me. Skadoosh!

    Of COURSE there will be a sequel. It’s just a shame that Tigress will be the love interest, and not Viper.

    I just hated when the action movie became a comedy in every single scene the panda appears xD pretty funny though.

    Saw it and loved it, but this is a news site, and we don’t cover box office returns and discussion threads.

    If you want to talk about WALL•E, you can head over to the Multiplex Forums.
