KUNG FU PANDA" />
The first teaser for DreamWorks' upcoming animated KUNG FU PANDA was actually rather amusing and showed some surprising promise. The film tells the story of a lowly panda named Po (voiced by Jack Black) whose fated to save his home from nefarious evildoers hellbent on, well, evil. He teams up with five kung fu master animals (voiced by Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen, Angelina Jolie and David Cross) and their teacher (voiced by Dustin Hoffman) in order to stop the villains and help him become the kung fu panda he was meant to be. Having said that, the folks at Italian film site "Bad Taste" have got themselves a look at a neat little standee for the film. Click HERE for some high res goodness. The kung fu begins June 6th.
||The idea for the film was apparently conceived by DreamWorks Animation executive Michael Lachance.
