CNN’s Cat Deeley discovers how advances in technology have increased the capability to create spectacular worlds such as in “Kung Fu Panda 2”.
The summer anticipated animation previously known as “Kung Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom of Doom”, is an upcoming animated film and the sequel to the 2008 film, Kung Fu Panda. It is set to be in 3-D and will be directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson, with most of the original cast returning, along with some new characters. The rest of the first film’s cast, including Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen, David Cross and James Hong, are all set to reprise their roles. New cast members include Victor Garber, Michelle Yeoh, Gary Oldman, James Woods and Jean-Claude Van Damme.
In “KUNG FU PANDA 2”, Po 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. But Po’s new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain, who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. He must look to his past and uncover the secrets of his mysterious origins; only then will Po be able to unlock the strength he needs to succeed.
