Kate Hudson Joins Kung Fu Panda

Normally voice casting for animated movies is done far in advance, mostly because sometimes the performance from each actor voicing the characters informs how the animators will bring the character to life. And because voice recording is done in advance, it’s a rarity to hear of someone being replaced with just under five months before the film’s release.

But that’s exactly what’s happening with Kung Fu Panda 3. Previously, Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson was slated to voice a character named Mei Mei, a ribbon-dancing panda who is romantically obsessed with Po. However, Almost Famous star Kate Hudson has now been hired to replace her on the film. Read More »

Kung Fu Panda 3

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 »

Kung Fu Panda 3 (1)

Kung Fu Panda 3 will triple down on the panda action. Although Po (voiced by Jack Black) has spent the past two films believing he was the last of his kind, the upcoming threequel will reveal that’s not the case. In fact, there’s a whole secret panda village full of other big, fat, happy bears.

Among them are Po’s biological father Li, voiced by Bryan Cranston, and a female panda named Mei Mei, voiced by Rebel Wilson. Not to mention a bunch of adorable baby pandas that seem to take to Po immediately. Get your Kung Fu Panda 3 first look after the jump. Read More »

Kung Fu Panda

At this point you’d have to be a fool to bet against Marvel, and outright crazy to bet against Star Wars. So, not very surprisingly, two major projects have just backed down from competitions against Ant-Man and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
