After 8 long years, the Kung Fu Panda franchise is back with a brand new title. Kung Fu Panda 4 was announced back in April 2023 and the official trailer for the movie was released recently. Kung Fu Panda is arguably one of the biggest franchises in Universal’s catalog including movies, TV shows, games, theme park attractions, and whatnot. This movie might turn out to be the end of an era where we grew up watching our clumsy and funny panda go on awesome adventures. In this article find out all about Kung Fu Panda 4 release date, cast, villains, and more!
Kung Fu Panda 4 Trailer
The official Kung Fu Panda 4 trailer was released this Wednesday bringing us the final installment of the Kung Fu Panda franchise. This trailer shows us that Po is out looking for a new dragon warrior while being threatened by a new villain named The Chameleon. The trailer for this movie looks as fun as it gets, hyping up the already exciting excitement for this movie around the globe.
Kung Fu Panda 4 Release Date
The Kung Fu Panda 4 release date is March 8, 2024. However, some other highly anticipated movies like Ryan Gosling’s The Fall Guy and Timothée Chalamet’s epic sci-fi Dune 2 are also coming out in March. So, this movie might face some serious competition from these big titles.
Kung Fu Panda 4 Cast
Kung Fu Panda 4 is bringing back the old and familiar cast of Kung Fu Panda along with some new characters as well. Jack Black is reprising his role as Po, the beloved black-and-white warrior along with Dustin Hoffman as Master Shifu. The Furious Five are also set to make a return in the Kung Fu Panda 4 cast, which means that we will get to see Angelina Jolie as Tigress, Seth Rogan as Mantis, Jackie Chan as Monkey, Lucy Liu as Viper and David Cross as Crane.
Some new characters are joining the cast as the second lead and the main villain. Viola Davis is going to be the voice of The Chameleon along with Awkwafina voicing Zhen who is going to be Po’s apprentice to be the new Dragon Warrior. Ke Huy Quan also appears as Han, the leader of the Den of Thieves.
Kung Fu Panda 4 Villain
Voila Davis is going to voice The Chameleon, the new Kung Fu Panda 4 villain. According to the trailer, The Chameleon will be the most fearsome villain yet in the Kung Fu Panda saga. She can shapeshift into all the legendary villains Po has ever fought. Based on the trailer, we are sure to see Tai Lung once again but we have not yet seen Chameleon take the form of the other villains. By the end of the trailer, we also witnessed her take the form of Po himself so this movie might actually end with an epic battle between our Po and en evil Po which I for one am pretty excited to see.
Kung Fu Panda 4 Plot
This movie will revolve around the end of Po’s tenure as the Dragon Warrior. In this movie, he sets out to find a new Dragon Warrior while also being threatened by Chameleon, a shapeshifting villain who will use the form of all the fearsome villains Po has ever fought to kill him. The movie is also going to follow the arc of Zhen, a thief who will be under Po’s training to be the next Dragon Warrior.
The plot will follow the same formula as the previous movies. However, the good thing about this franchise is that even though they might follow the same formula, there is always something new and never seen before. I am pretty excited to see Kung Fu Panda 4 in theaters on March 8, 2024, and if you have made it this far in this article, so are you. With that, let’s just begin our wait for the release and see you guys in the theaters!
Chameleon, Voiced by Viola Davis is going to be the villain of Kung Fu Panda 4.
The Furious Five are confirmed to appear in Kung Fu Panda 4.
Tai Lung’s form will be stolen by the Chameleon in Kung Fu Panda 4, as revealed in the trailer. However, we can’t yet say if he will be voiced by Ian McShane.
