It really is going to be a year of awesomeness! (If you can't tell, I'm being hyperbolic for most of this post.) I was browsing IMPAwards today and noticed this awesome new banner for DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda 2. Now that Shrek Forever After and Megamind are out of the way, this is their focus for 2011, hence the TV spots airing five months early proclaiming it to be the "Year of Awesomeness!" I just love how beautiful wide this banner is and how totally freakin' cool it looks having all six of the uh, Furious Five, flying down from above ready to kick some ass. It just looks awesome!
Po & the Furious Five head to China to battle a villain and uncover the secrets of Po's mysterious origins.
Kung Fu Panda 2, officially known as Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom, is directed by Jennifer Yuh, a former storyboard artist and the head of story on Kung Fu Panda, whose only past directing experience was on the Spawn animated TV series. The script for this sequel was written by Jonathan Aibel & Glenn Berger (both of MADtv, King of the Hill, Kung Fu Panda, Monsters vs Aliens).
Paramount is bringing DreamWorks Kung Fu Panda 2 to theaters everywhere in 3D starting May 26th, 2011 next summer. Who's in already?
