Ask yourself if the you from today would have guessed back in 2008 that this movie would become one of the greatest animated movies ever and make two succesful sequels, four animated shorts and one animated show.
Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) Dir. Jennifer Yuh Nelson & Alessandro Carloni, Art Dir. Max Boas Kung Fu Panda 3 continues the surprisingly rich imagery of the first two installments, this time more stylised than ever thanks to th ebattles in the Spirit Realm, a gourgeous middle ground between traditional and cel-shaded 3D animation.
Lots of excitement and color here for the third iteration of DreamWorks Animation’s lovable ball of fun, Kung Fu Panda. You can expect DreamWorks’ usual star studded lineup, including the returning cast, and now adding J.K. Simmons to the list. Is Simmons in everything animated now? He really seems to be bringing his A game to the animation scene lately.
Kung Fu Panda 3 rolls into theaters January 29, 2016.
I’m sitting in the airport waiting to embark on a journey that will inevitably change my life. I know that in a few months my view of the world and everything inside of it will change. I’ve been planning this trip for months, but now that I’m about to depart everything feels surreal. I can actually say, for once, that I’m scared. Not necessarily because I don’t think I can handle myself, but because I know that I can’t even begin to comprehend the incredible experience that I’m about to have.
I’m reminded of my first day in Korea–laying on my bed in my first host family’s house. The feeling I got was of overwhelming fear and excitement and yet, I can’t imagine a better feeling. Fear is powerful. Some people say that if you don’t leave your comfort zone when you do something then you haven’t really grown. Ironically, I think I’ve pushed myself into new experiences so often that I am now comfortable with being uncomfortable. I’m used to the fear that accompanies the new and unfamiliar. Fear turns into excitement at the prospect of becoming a different person. A person more knowledgable and mature than the one before, if only ever so slightly.
