Trivia

Goofs

Shifu mentions that the dragon scroll prophecy has been around for 500 years, yet Po mention's in the first film that they've been waiting 1000 years for the Dragon scroll to be revealed. And seeing how Po is the biggest Kung fu fan, he shouldn't have been wrong. See more »

Another great movie
31 January 2016 | by julie-renee-mooreSee all my reviews

I went with my 14-year old son to watch Kung Fu Panda 3. We both loved it. It's definitely a feel-good movie. We've watched every Kung Fu Panda movie, and we are definitely fans. The cast is incredible! Jack Black is awesome as Po, as usual. We particularly enjoyed the music score (which nicely emphasized the emotional parts) and the artwork. I appreciated that there were morals woven into this movie, especially with regard to finding your true self, appreciation of what it means to be a family and the importance of family, and Po's learning about chi, the life force in all living things. This all added depth to Po's character. There were, of course, many funny moments in the movie that made us both laugh. At the end of the movie (and we always stay to the very end, reading all the credits), the artwork was particularly beautiful, where they took images from the movie and made it look like an ancient, Chinese watercolor. We left feeling very good about having spent time together at this movie!
