Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011) - Oscar® Nominee!
Kung Fu Panda 2 (DVD)
From DreamWorks Animation—the studio that brought you “How to Train Your Dragon,” “Shrek,” and the Academy Award®- and Golden Globe-nominated “Kung Fu Panda”—comes the latest adventures of one of the most unlikely heroes ever to transition from noodle shop employee to kung fu master.
In “Kung Fu Panda 2” Po (JACK BLACK) is now living his dream as The Dragon Warrior, protecting the Valley of Peace alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, The Furious Five: Tigress (ANGELINA JOLIE); Monkey (JACKIE CHAN); Mantis (SETH ROGEN); Viper (LUCY LIU); and Crane (DAVID CROSS). Also returning is DUSTIN HOFFMAN as the kung fu guru and Po’s mentor, Master Shifu, and JAMES HONG as Mr. Ping, Po’s father and owner of the most popular noodle shop in the village.
Po’s new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain, Lord Shen (GARY OLDMAN), who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. Po must look to his past and uncover the secrets of his mysterious origins—only then will he be able to unlock the strength he needs to succeed.
Editor's NotePo, Tigress, and all the other fiercely feral fighters of KUNG FU PANDA return for this sequel to the Annie-award winning action/comedy. KUNG FU PANDA: THE KABOOM OF DOOM features the voices of Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, and a number of other talents from the original film.
