It’s a big challenge to keep a franchise fresh three installments in, but Kung Fu Panda 3 has one big surprise up its sleeve. It turns out Po (voiced by Jack Black) isn’t the last of his kind, as he previously believed. His dad Li (voiced by Bryan Cranston) is still very much alive, and residing among an entire community of big, fat, happy pandas.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. First, Po and Li have to find each other, and in the first Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer they do just that. It goes about as well as you’d think. Watch the Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer after the jump. Read More »

It wasn’t so very long ago that CG animation felt cutting-edge and new, but these days it’s become so ubiquitous we hardly even notice it anymore. Instead, what feels fresh again are more traditional animation methods. DreamWorks Animation’s Me and My Shadow combines CG and hand-drawn animation to tell the story of “the world’s most boring human” Daniel (voiced by Book of Mormon‘s Josh Gad) and his bored shadow (voiced by Bill Hader), who longs for a more exciting life.
The shadow finally gets his chance, albeit not necessarily in the way he’d hoped. When events in the shadow world put Daniel’s life in danger, Shadow Dan breaks the rules and takes control of his person. The two then set off on an adventure to stop the shadow villain and his nefarious plans to take over the human world. Check out the adorable first poster after the jump.
