        She's cute and laid back and energetic enough for the terminally online to think she's doing verbal blackface. I haven't done a search on any such but I also haven't heard much in terms of controversy or shitty behavior on her part

        She's fine when she's not singing. She does have a certain charm, but Disney and that faggy songwriter did her super dirty with Little Mermaid.

          Oogway was above the dragon warrior, he was king of kung fu.
          Shifu and his students could never be the dragon warriors because Shifu’s pride and ruthless teachings were not what Oogway wanted for a dragon warrior. The time Shifu finally became a good teacher was with Po, and he became the dragon warrior. That’s the fucking lesson.

        The problem is the third film sorta ruins that.
        The whole point of the Third movie is that Panda's used to be this super magical race of people with inherint hidden powers in them.

        Which now gives the implication that the whole franchise was in reality set-up that Po always had hidden powers and thus the whole thing was retroactivily a "Chosen-One" story.

          Po still had to prove he was good enough himself rather than rely on his ancient powers. The third movie shows that most pandas are lazy fat losers despite their ancestry, and were only able to channel their energy thanks to Po. He had to work hard to earn the title, not just rely on being a panda.

        There's definitely an order to the series that can be watched where the characters don't feel absolutely ruined if you put the worst episodes first where Po is being a disgusting arrogant selfish asshole cowardly lying bitch (15 of them as I can recall) and or Tigress is consistently being an absolute bitch to Po and his status as Dragon Warrior BEFORE she gets whipped by the fish master, Mugan. All of that of course is then followed by Kung Fu Panda 2.

I could see Po getting a crew of Dragon Warriors over the course of the next 3 movies, one of whom will succeed Po when he get too old. Or dies. Or straight-up ascends and walks into the spirit world on a spectral golden bridge leading from the cliff the peach tree's planted on right into the spirit realm to re-unite with his dad everyone he trained with at the Jade Palace at the end of the franchise.

    The people who like KFP2 probably defend the last 10 eps of Gravity Falls episodes, which have an unnecessary amount of "bits meant to cause the viewer to crack a smile, chuckle, giggle or laugh". When it comes to stories that want to be serious and want the viewer to be invested, there is a certain limit to how many of those bits there should be, yet KFP2 and last 10 eps of GF crossed it.

      If you can't enjoy characters no matter the situation, you need to lighten up a bit

      I never watched GF. I dislike animated shows with kiddy designs. That shit looks one step above that Captain Underpants nonsense.

    Can't wait to see my boy, Shifu. What are the chances he'll have a fight in this movie that he will actually win?

      LOL He'll probably job to some easily avoidable attack fake Tai Lung hits him with because he'll be in shock that his baby boy is somehow alive again.

        Hey, I would take that but I doubt he's even going to meet the villian until maybe the end.

          I think Shifu will catch that ass-kicking somewhere before the middle of the movie, while Po and crew are running from village to village investigating reports of his old foes somehow alive again.

    >Long ago, in ancient China, the peacocks ruled over Gongmen City. They brought great peace and prosperity to the city, for they had invented fireworks. But their son, Lord Shen, saw darker power in the fireworks. What had brought color and joy could also bring darkness and destruction.

    >My father's throne. He used to let me play here beside him, promising someday that this throne would be mine.

    >Young Shen was in line to rule Gongmen City, but he wanted more.
    Every piece of information about Shen before the "goat foretells that a panda will defeat him if he continues on that dark path/Shen and his wolves cause a panda genocide/Shen and the wolves are banished from the city and they spend the next 30 years building weapons to conquer China" stuff. I'm not impressed.

      Only instances in the whole film where the word "firework" is said. It's said twice at the start, and then never again.

    Those wolves designs from Panda 2 are questionable. They look like designs straight from the internet.

    I get that the word "cannon" probably wasn't yet invented when Panda 2 takes place, but it's still annoying how everytime they talk about the cannon, they call it "the weapon". It gets repetitive and sounds a bit silly ("if those weapons leave the building"/"with the weapon by my side"/"at least we destroyed the weapon..... Ah no, he's got more")

      You're thinking of the random character that is not going to be acknowledged at all from one of those weird dreamworks netflix series.

    Po is kinda insufferable in KFP2, and Lord Shen, The Soothsayer and the wolf mooks are kinda insufferable too. Just an irritating film that i'd love to forget.

    It's unbelievable that Kung Fu Panda 2 and that Sonic game from 2006 actually exist. They should've never left those Dreamworks and Sega facilites.

    I think it's one of the worst theatrical american films of the 2010s, and it's easily my least favorite film ever made.

    Were there any villains from the Legends of Awesome show you guys liked? I feel that despite the writing issues of the show they actually gave Po a solid Rogues Gallery and some fun one shots baddies like Kim the Invincible or Fung the jobber crocodile
