Kung Fu Panda 4 is set to bring back fan-favorite characters like Tai Lung and the Furious Five, alongside the introduction of new characters voiced by Viola Davis and Awkwafina.

In the upcoming movie, Po goes on a big adventure to the city to find a new Dragon Warrior before he becomes the Spiritual Leader. But things change when he meets a new enemy, the Chameleon (Viola Davis). To save the Valley of Peace, Po teams up with the quick-talking thief Zhen (Awkwafina).

Director Mike Mitchell reveals in a conversation with Collider that they are bringing back some fan-favorite characters and villains.

“By the way, all the old characters are back – Mr Ping, Li, played by Bryan Cranston, Shifu, played by Dustin Hoffman, and then James Hong who plays Ping. Tons of characters. All the characters come back. Every single character that you remember comes back, and a few villains that I don’t want to spoil. But really, we wanted to introduce a whole slew of new characters which we did.”

Mitchell also said that Kung Fu Panda 4 is inspired by anime, “There’s a new big resurgence trend of anime, and so this film has more anime. I don’t remember any of the past three movies really embracing anime as much as this one has. And again, it looks like a Kung Fu Panda movie, we didn’t want to change that.”

The movie releases on March 8, 2024.
