This week I will be watching all the Academy Award nominated “Animated Feature Films.” Kung Fu Panda 2 has been nominated, however, I have not yet seen the original Fung Fu Panda, so I figured it was probably best to start with the first film in the series.
The film is definitely packed with an all-star cast on voice duty: Jack Black (Po), Dustin Hoffman (Shifu), Angelina Jolie (Tigress), Jackie Chan (Monkey), Seth Rogen (Mantis), Lucy Liu (Viper), David Cross (Crane) and more.
I enjoyed Kung Fu Panda more than I anticipated. For some reason, I really liked the scene where Shifu makes Po train before he can eat… Honestly, I’m not really sure why, but it was my favorite.
Now, I am actually very curious to watch the 2nd film… Especially, since the focus of the 1st is that Po is “not worthy” of becoming the Dragon Warrior.
Guess I will find out tomorrow!
Kung Fu Panda was more entertaining than I anticipated. Not sure it will become one of my “must watch” animated films, however.
