I know I enjoyed seeing Kung Fu Panda recently but I’m flummoxed to learn that a sequel is already being discussed.

According to Dreamworks boss Jeffrey Katzenberg (Shrek), Kung Fu Panda is part of a five-chapter story. He stated: ‘There is a larger story here of which this is the first chapter.’

This news is particularly surprising as at the original film took four years and seven months to make after the idea was devised by Michael Lachance back in 1993.

In its opening weekend in US, the film topped the box office, taking $US60 million ($A62.7 million). It became the third-highest opening ever for a digital animation after the two Shrek movies.

It vanquished You Don't Mess With The Zohan,Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Sex and the City.

Katzenberg said whether the further chapters happen depend upon movie-goers’ reactions: ‘It needs to be a big hit. It needs to be a blockbuster.’

By looking at those figures, I think he has his answer.

I guess it could be the next Shrek, I've yet to see it, animations are generally a DVD venture for me.

HI Louie

Yes, I think they are aiming for the next Shrek phenomenon. It is a good film, but I didn't think it was as great as Shrek.

Then it sounds like this idea will be perfect for you! Five films of Po and his adventures

I honestly have not seen this movie as I can't even get the tickets. It's always packed. (Even weekdays, mind you)

Another one like Shrek? hm...

Hi Jessicca

Gosh, really? I was lucky enough to see it at the Sydney Film Festival, so I missed all the queuing business.


Thanks for popping in,

HI Ilyes

It's definitely worth a look and I'm sure you'll get a few chuckles from it
