Kung Fu Panda is the story of Po, (voice of Jack Black), a sweet, big, enthusiastic and clumsy Panda. Po is also one of the biggest fans of Kung Fu around, who nurtures dreams of fighting along with the legendary Furious Five: Tigress (voice of Angelina Jolie), Viper (voice of Lucy Liu), Crane (voice of David Cross), Monkey (voice of Jackie Chan), and Mantis (voice of Seth Rogen) and protecting the city against all threats. The only problem is that Po has no real life experience of kung fu, and his real job is serving noodles at his dad's noodles shop, where Kung fu isn't really useful. Unexpectedly chosen to fulfill an ancient prophecy, Po's dreams become reality when he joins the world of Kung Fu and studies alongside his idols, the legendary Furious Five. News of selecting the Dragon Warrior is sent out from the Jade Temple, and Po, along with the whole city goes to the celebration. The competition is between the Furious Five. Po is accidentally thrown into the contest and is named the Dragon Warrior. Master Shifu (voice Dustin Hoffman) must find a way to train Po and make him a Kung Fu Master, especially, after they learn that the vengeful and treacherous snow leopard, Tai Lung (voice Ian McShane), is headed their way. Can Po turn his dreams of becoming a Kung Fu master into reality? Po puts his heart - and his girth - into the task, and this unlikely hero ultimately finds that his greatest weaknesses turn out to be his greatest strengths.
