Kung Fu Panda 4 is the sequel to a movie based on the trilogy of movies based on a panda that does Kung Fu. Ground breaking.
Kung Fu Panda 4
While the official word on the plot of Kung Fu Panda 4 has not yet been made public, our sources indicate that the script is nearing a solid first draft and that the studio is thrilled! (gah! I wish the studios would give us more for this, Rio 3, and Big Hero 6 2!!).
Potential Kung Fu Panda 4 Plotlines; aka Kung Fu Panda 4 rumors; aka Kung Fu Panda 4 spoilers
The Kung Fu Panda movies have thus far been a journey for our hero, Jack Black/Kung Fu Panda dude. He goes from nothing to a Kung Fu super master and finally reconciles with his father in Kung Fu Panda 3. The film then ends with them all being at peace. But, they have said there will be at least three more of these things so iiiiiiiit’s coming! Sources say that the plot will be simple: the next trilogy will see Kung Fu Panda Dude, Po, raising a family. He will take his son under his wing and raise him to become a new Kung Fu Panda Master. In this way, Kung Fu Panda will mimic Star Wars in many respects, just with bamboo sticks instead of lightsabers.
Kung Fu Panda 4 Director
Jennifer Yuh Nelson directed the second and third installments of the Kung Fu Panda series and it’s a safe bet that she will return for the fourth go around.
Kung Fu Panda 4 Writers
Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger have written all of the Kung Fu Panda movies. Why wouldn’t they write the fourth? Of course they will!

The Kung Fu Panda 4 trailer is still in the heads of the studio just waiting to be sprayed all over a screen coming soon, but in the meantime the first film’s trailer is below. Why the first trailer rather than the second? Murica.
Kung Fu Panda 4 Release Date
It’s a cash cow and the industry likes to milk those cows until they’re dry. 2018 is a go. November 2018 to be safe.
UPDATE: It looks like the release is now pushed back to 2020.
Kung Fu Panda 4 Cast & Stars
These films are so easy for the cast to show up for a few days, record a few lines and collect their multi-million dollar paycheck that I guarantee most of them will return. Obviously, the Kung Fu Panda 4 cast must include the original cast, and here they are! What else is Kate Hudson gonna do these days?
- Jack Black as Po
- Bryan Cranston as Li Shan, Po’s biological father and the uncle of Dim and Sum
- Dustin Hoffman as Master Shifu
- Angelina Jolie as Master Tigress
- J.K. Simmons as Kai, a yak. A powerful and vicious spirit warrior who was the former brother-in-arms of Oogway and has a supernatural ability to steal other warriors’ chi.
- Seth Rogen as Master Mantis
- David Cross as Master Crane
- Lucy Liu as Master Viper
- Jackie Chan as Master Monkey
- James Hong as Mr. Ping
- Kate Hudson as Mei Mei
- Randall Duk Kim as Grand Master Oogway
- Jean-Claude Van Damme as Master Croc

Worst Actor/Actress in Kung Fu Panda 4
Seth Rogan. He’s not funny anymore. Maybe he is but he’s kinda boring.
Potential Kung Fu Panda 4 Titles
- Kung F.U. (“Eff” “You”)
- Kung Fu Panda 4: I should have learned BJJ.
- BJJ Panda: I can actually fight now
- Kung Fat Panda 4
- Kung Fu Panda 4: Won’t have sex to save the species.
- Kung Fu Panda 4 Meets Minions 2
Will Kung Fu Panda 4 Be Worth Seeing?
If it ends up as a story where he learns Kung Fu sucks and teaches his kid BJJ it’ll be awesome. Overall, the franchise is filled with colorful films, and they have nice, safe, positive messages. It may be the animated equivalent of Paul Blart 3, but that’s still a major step up from Vampire Academy 2 and only a slight step down from National Treasure 3, so who am I to say it’ll be lame?
Kung Fu Panda 4 Box Office Forecast
It won’t be Minions 2 level, but there’s no reason Kung Fu Panda 4 doesn’t gross at least $500m (Kung Fu Panda 3 made MORE than $500m already)…
Final Thoughts on Kung Fu Panda 4
Maybe they’ll have the Panda team up with the guy from Red Belt and combine it all into a Who Framed Roger Rabbit type of movie!
