Overview and Review of Kung Fu Panda Directed by Mark Osborne and John Stevenson.
Po is the name, a sweet and clumsy Panda one of the biggest fan of Kung Fu dreams of being a Kung Fu Master and adores the Furious Five - Tigress(Angelina Jolie), Crane(David Cross), Mantis(Seth Rogen), Viper(Lucy Liu) and Monkey(Jackie Chan). But with all his wildest dreams of being a Kung Fu Master, he is stuck with his father in a Noodle shop and expected to follow after him.
To Shi Fu(Dusin Hoffman) it was an accident to Oogway(Randall Duk Kim), there are no accidents. To fulfill an ancient prophecy, Po's dreams become a reality when he joins the world of Kung Fu and studies alongside his idols, the legendary Furious Five -- Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey -- under the leadership of their guru, Master Shifu.
There's also the vengeful and double-crossing snow leopard Tai Lung(Ian Mclane) who is headed their way from escaping at a prison, and it's up to Po to defend everyone from the oncoming threat.
It's actually a great animation. Aside from all the funny antics and Po's big butt it has a moral lesson. And a deep one at that. It's a lesson about a Master-Student Relationship. You would learn about the "Secret Ingredient" which proves to be the most significant lesson in the whole movie. Also, it is "soo real life" or "sooo true" with people.
ooh and I like Panda's by the way! =)
