The first teaser of the much awaited animation movie Kung fu Panda 3 has arrived introducing the dreaded villain ‘Kai’. The trailer opens with Master Shifu warning the Furious Five that there will be a war. The mysterious new villain, Kai the Collector, then smirks.
Although the trailer is in Chinese, fans have much to enjoy as it introduces some new characters as well as bringing back the long awaited Furious Five. Among the various dynamics that have raised viewer expectations, on one end, the trailer features The Furious Five engage in fierce battle on rooftops and, on the other end, Mei Mei: a female panda who is rumoured to be Po’s love interest. In the last scene of the trailer, Kai hauls a statue to destroy a Chinese monument.
According to the official synopsis, “When Po’s long—lost panda father suddenly reappears, the reunited duo travels to a secret panda paradise to meet scores of hilarious new panda characters. “But when the supernatural villain Kai begins to sweep across China defeating all the kung fu masters, Po must do the impossible—learn to train a village full of his fun—loving, clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas!”
Jennifer Yuh Nelson, who directed Kung Fu Panda 2, returns as director while Melissa Cobb is tapped as producer.
