Washington [US], August 13 (ANI): 'Kung Fu Panda 4' will be released on March 8, 2024, according to Universal Pictures.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the untitled DreamWorks Animation movie will be replaced by the most recent chop-socky film from the Furious Five and Po movie franchise.
The 'Kung Fu Panda' film series, which is based on traditional martial arts and is set in ancient China, tells the epic story of wide-eyed Po, whose love of kung fu is rivalled only by his insatiable appetite.
The 2008 opening chapter of the Academy Award-nominated film, which stars Jack Black as the endearing bear Po, the Chinese panda, became DreamWorks' highest-grossing original animated film.
The first 'Kung Fu Panda' film served as the catalyst for a trilogy that has amassed over USD1.8 billion in worldwide box office revenue. Thanks to its devoted following, the franchise has grown to include a variety of consumer product programmes, video games, an Emmy Award-winning television series, and international theme parks.
That includes 'Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight', the third TV series in the 'Kung Fu Panda' franchise that grew out of the 2011 and 2016 big-screen sequels to the animated feature film Kung Fu Panda, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
On Po's most recent martial arts combat adventure, the Netflix animated series was supported by voice actors Black, Rita Ora, and James Hong, as well as art director Ellen Jin and executive producers Peter Hastings and Shaunt Nigoghossian. (ANI)
