Check This Out: Four New 'Kung Fu Panda 2' Characters Revealed
We've already seen an epic new banner, a literally in your face teaser, a pretty cool Super Bowl ad and the official theatrical trailer for Kung Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom of Doom. Now we have a look at four of the new characters in the sequel as DreamWorks Animation has just released a few new banners on the film's official Facebook page (via SlashFilm). The animation style in Kung Fu Panda, especially with all the characters, was really quite unique, and these new characters are no different. You can check out the official images of each character along with a brief introduction below. I honestly can't wait to see them in action!
Here's the new four new characters from Kung Fu Panda 2::
The aged Soothsayer has been an advisor to the Peacocks, rulers of Gongmen City, her entire life. She is wise and gifted with knowledge of the future.
Lord Shen is hyper intelligent, supremely lethal, and burns with ambition. It's a combustible combination. He wants to wipe out out kung fu and take over China, putting him on a collision course with Po and The Five.
The Wolf Boss and his pack were once guards in Gongmen City's royal palace. Now he is Lord Shen's most loyal servant, military strategist and trusted right paw.
The Gorillas are the muscle in Lord Shen's army. If his evil schemes require any heavy lifting, they'll be the ones doing it. Shen's personal guard is made up entirely of these powerful brutes, who are honor bound to their master.
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 on May 26th this summer. It's the Year of Awesomeness!
