After Po (Jack Black) beats the stairs, ehem, beats Tai Lung, the snow leopard in the first one, here comes again a new enemy who believes that he would destroy Kung Fu and bring an end to the world of Kung Fu.
When Kung Fu Panda first came out, it is known for the solid cast, with Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan, Dustin Hoffman, Lucy Liu......and of course their combination of storyline using animation and fuse it with the fury of Kung Fu, no kidding, Kung Fu plus animation....who can resist something like that!?
And here we go, the new character for Kung Fu Panda 2....well I'm quite surprise that all the new cast is casted as the bad guys!!
Yes, this creature peacock above, don't get fooled by the look....he's the new villain in the sequel, Lord Shen (Personally, I like the design a lot! It's beautiful, ain't it? And he got the big boss look! )! He wants to wipe out Kung Fu and taking over China, well he did this due to his poor childhood, sigh, guess that he had a miserable childhood like the guy from Despicable Me! And....it is voiced by Gary Oldman!!!! Ah, promising! Gotta love it.
The another new character will be Master Croc. Well, he's the head of the crocodile bandit. Hmm, and this character is voiced by JCVD, ya Jean Claude Van Damme. I still can't get it why they look so different, haha, where's the muscular hot hunk, okay I get it, it's an animation! JCVD is one of the bad guy too, in the sequel....I mean crocodile right? How good can a crocodile be...
The Soothsayer, voiced by our beloved Michelle Yeoh, love her so much and she.....work for Lord Shen, kind of, as she predict the future for Lord Shen. So, it's consider as the bad guy too right? Well, I guess she's in the grey zone.
Personally I think that the sequel storyline will be much interesting than the first one. At least, we got some heavyweight bad guy casting on the list! Can't wait to listen to their voice, and of course the animation! And here you go, the new trailer for Kung Fu Panda 2....
So, how was that? I love the dragon dancing part where they swallow the bad guy and the rabbit saw that part! Haha, well let's see then.....the fist of the animal Kung Fu fighting will hit the cinema in May 2011!
(PS : A must watch animation in 2011.....personally and recommended.)
