2011 - The Year of Awesomeness! It seems a little early to see a TV spot for a movie that doesn't come out until May next summer, but it's New Years EVE, so why the heck not put out a New Years-themed spot? DreamWorks Animation has started airing a new 15-second TV spot (found first at SlashFilm) for their upcoming animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 2. We already saw a hilarious teaser trailer for this back in November, but this is a good little tease as well. I guess they're trying to own the whole year with some huge marketing - it might work, this is a sequel I'm actually looking forward to. It's short so check it out. Enjoy!
Watch the first TV spot for DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda 2:
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?
