Kiai! Kung Fu Panda will have a fourth film • ENTER.CO

Kung Fu Panda is back with reports of a fourth movie in development and scheduled for release in 2024.

Good good. If I had been told that the next animated movie to receive a new animated movie after such a long time would be Kung-Fu Panda… I wouldn’t have been the least bit surprised. But then we can feign surprise now that we’ve received the news that a fourth Kung Fu panda movie is on the way.

The news, reported by different international media, ensures that Universal Pictures is preparing a fourth film that, in theory, would be released on March 8, 2024. For now, the details of this new project have not been confirmed. But the return of Jack Black who has played Po, the protagonist of the film, is expected. The ideal would also be to have the return of other regulars such as Jackie Chan (Master Monkey), Seth Rogen (Master Mantis), Lucy Liu (Master Viper), Angelina Jolie (Master Tigress), David Cross (Master Crane) and Dustin Hoffman ( Master Shifu).

There doesn’t seem to be an indicator as to why Universal has now decided to pick up the movies in the franchise. Kung Fu Panda was always a blockbuster movie, but also the same box office regression that is usually expected from this type of movie. So far the franchise has raised a total of 1.8 billion dollars, a sum that cannot be underestimated.

The real reason could be more in the reception that the Netflix series has had and other shorts that the franchise has launched. Universal may see Kung Fu’s popularity continue and it remains a franchise that deserves space on the modern billboard.
