Dreamworks Animation would like to introduce to the new characters who are joining the action in Kung Fu Panda 2.
The film sees Po and The Furious Five venture to China to battle a villain and uncover the secrets of Po’s mysterious origins.
Original stars Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Lucy Lui, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen and David Cross are all back, with three big name new voices in the shape of Michelle Yeoh, Jean Claude Van Damme and Gary Oldman.
Kung Fu Panda 2 will be released, in 3D, on May 27th, 2011.
So without further ado here are the new guys! First up is Lord Shen.
Lord Shen is hyper intelligent, supremely lethal, and burns with ambition. It’s a combustible combination. He’s intent on wiping out kung fu and taking over China. That puts him on a collision course with Po and The Five.
Next we have Soothsayer.
The aged Soothsayer has been advisor to the Peacocks, rulers of Gongmen City, her entire life. She is wise and gifted with knowledge of the future.
Closely followed by the Wolf Boss.
The Wolf Boss and his pack were once guards in Gongmen City’s royal palace. Now he is Lord Shen’s most loyal servant, military strategist and trusted right paw.
And last but not least, the Gorillas.
The Gorillas are the muscle in Lord Shen’s army. If his evil schemes require any heavy lifting, they’ll be the ones doing it. Shen’s personal guard is made up entirely of these powerful (and powerfully large) brutes, who are honor bound to their master.
