Kung Fu Panda, the legendary movie recounting the story of Po and his adventures is back. With Jack Black lending his voice to the character of Po once again, the upcoming sequel has got fans on the edge of their seats.
With throwbacks to the previous films, some returning characters, and some absentees, the newest trailer for Kung Fu Panda 4 has just dropped. Taking to X (formerly Twitter) fans have responded with unique comments and thoughts on the movie with several people comparing it to Spider-Man: No Way Home!
Kung Fu Panda Is Back With A Vengeance!
With Kung Fu Panda 1 and 2 dealing with Po’s journey to becoming a dragon warrior and then finding his real family, the films were indeed highly praised. The third part dealt with Po rushing to the said family of pandas and saving them from Kai.
And after 7 years, fans are gifted with a trailer for the upcoming Kung Fu Panda 4! The movie will see the reprisal of Jack Black in his iconic role as Po alongside some familiar faces and some people (or rather animals) who should have been there.

And after all, with the return of Tai Lung and several others, there are also some characters missing. Fans might have noticed that the Furious 5 namely Tigress, Monkey, Crane, Mantis, and, Viper are absent from the trailer. Well, that might have something to do with the fact that several of the actors have not been confirmed to return to the franchise.
Quentin Tarantino Thinks Kung Fu Panda Is A Parody of Kill Bill!
In what seems to be a harrowing accusation, veteran director Quentin Tarantino talked about how everyone steals from him. Talking about his films, copycats, and, inspirations in an interview with Joe Rogan on The Joe Rogan Experience Kung Fu Panda was a direct parody of Kill Bill.
“People would ask me, ‘Hey, did that really bug you?’ When, there was a period where it seemed like, five years in the 90s when every crime film, kind of had this ironic bit, played music in a weird way. And I go, ‘No, it doesn’t bother me.’ I don’t think any of them are as good as mine.”
He further continued,
“Frankly, Kung Fu Panda is just a straight-up parody of Kill Bill. In every way,”
Whether the movie is a parody or not, Kung Fu Panda 4 has all the hype from the audience it needs. With a release date of 8th March 2024, the movie is set for a theatrical release along with bringing some iconic villains and characters back.
