We just love kung fu! Last episode we reviewed Kung Fu Panda and we just couldn’t get enough. This episode, we review the 2011 sequel, Kung Fu Panda 2!

Highlights

  • Main Discussion: Kung Fu Panda 2
  • General info, box office results, and first thoughts and recollections.
  • Morgan thought the intro was going to be a lot more epic.
  • The score by Hans Zimmer and John Powell really does a great job of drawing you in. It’s very lyrical and dictates what is happening on screen.
  • Big plot problem: Po’s “Who am I? Where did I come from?” dilemma comes out of nowhere. Needed more buildup.
  • Lord Shen is an amazing villain.
  • This is one of the most emotional DreamWorks films.
  • Did Shen survive? In frame by frame, you see him crushed by his cannon.
  • So that’s where all the pandas went!
  • Voicemail: Katie, Sarah
  • Listener Twitter question: What is your favorite scene or quote from Kung Fu Panda 2?
  • Don’t forget to use the hashtags #AnimAddicts and #AnimAddicts91 when talking about this episode on Twitter!
