DreamWorks Animation's third movie to not feature humans after Shark Tale (2004) and Kung Fu Panda (2008). This doesn't include Antz (1998) or Flushed Away (2006), where humans are seen only briefly. See more »
Unlike most of the other animal characters in the Kung Fu Panda franchise, gorillas are not native to China. The only great ape native to Asia is the orangutan, while gorillas originate from Africa. See more »

We cannot give up hope. Po would want us to remain strong. Hardcore! Right, Tigress?

The ending credits feature in Chinese shadow-puppetry how baby Po undertook the journey from the point his mother hid him, to the exterior of Mr Ping's restaurant. See more »
This installment of Kung Fu Panda exceeded my expectations in all respects.
Animation is superb, characters greatly orchestrated, voice-acting is top-notch, fights are well choreographed and there is enough humor to make you feel that you have regained your childhood back!!! With ingenious methods, the actions scenes are executed. And in many parts where you would normally expect a punch line or superb dialogue, there will be an excellent goof-up which seems to tickle you just enough!! Kudos to the dialogues and screenplay.
The only negative (and that too a little one) is the storyline. I really expected something other than the plain old story of discovery and revenge.
But all-in-all, Kung Fu Panda 2 is one of the best animation movies ever made and I can safely say that this will be the best movie this summer!!!
