One for the kids (and some grown-ups)…Kung Fu Panda 3 at the Picturehouse

Picturehouse Greenwich

Picturehouse Greenwich, Various times this Easter Holiday

The wait is over as Po (voiced as ever by Jack Black), the Furious Five (Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, David Cross and Lucy Liu) and their beloved instructor Shifu (Hoffman) are back.

This time they are joined by Li (Bryan Cranston) – Po’s long-lost father – whose arrival doesn’t go down well with Po’s adoptive dad, Mr Ping (James Hong). Po and Li embark on a voyage to a secret panda village in the mountains. When Po hears that supernatural villain Kai is rampaging across China defeating martial arts masters, there’s only one thing to do: he must train the clumsy, fun-loving pandas to become the ultimate kung fu warriors to defeat him.

Jennifer Yuh (Kung Fu Panda 2) and regular animation artist Alessandro Carloni co-direct this hilarious episode of the action-packed hit franchise.
