Kungfu Panda is about Po, an overweight food loving panda works in his family's noodle shop.
But Po's real ambitions are elsewhere, he dreams of Kungfu alongside his idols- the legendary famous five.
These are Tigress voiced by Angelina Jolie, Crane by David Cross, Mantis voiced by Seth Rogen, Viper voiced by Lucy Liu and Monkey voiced by Jackie Chan.
These are the disciples of master Shiru voiced by Dustin Hoffman.
Incredibly enough his dreams become a reality when PO is chosen as the dungeon master and must train to defeat the deadly snow leopard, Tai lung!
Kungfu Panda is co-directed by Oscar nominated animator- Mark Osborne and John Stevenson who did the storyboards on Shrek.
Kungfu Panda is a roller coaster action comedy that just does not stop.
There are several imaginatively done sequences. In one Shifu teaches PO Kungfu moves with food!
It tends to get a little too preachy and does not have the sparkling wit of Shrek but it's a great outing for the whole family.
