"Kung Fu Panda" ist ein sehr spassiger, computergenerierter Animationsfilm von DreamWorks, die u.a. schon mit "Shrek" und "Ab durch die Hecke" sehr erfolgreich waren...
Als Nudelsuppenkoch-Lehrling hat Po, der Panda, seinen Beruf längst
gefunden. Heimlich träumt der pummelige Bär mit dem respektlosen Mundwerk
davon, ein berühmter Kung-Fu-Kämpfer zu sein, doch im Grunde ist jedem klar,
dass er besser beim Essenfassen und Sprücheklopfen ist als beim Anwenden von
raffinierter Kampftechnik. Das Schicksal allerdings hat Großes mit dem wohl
größten Tollpatsch im alten China vor. Eine Prophezeiung hat Po als
"Erwählten" ausgemacht, als einzigen Retter für das Tal des Friedens und als
letzte Hoffnung im Kampf gegen den machtgierigen Schneeleoparden Tai Lung.
Master Shifu, Lehrer der Besten unter den Besten, und die fünf
Kung-Fu-Meister Tigerin, Kranich, Gottesanbeterin, Viper und Affestellen
sich der wahrscheinlich größten Herausforderung ihres Lebens: Sie müssen aus
einem naschsüchtigen Taugenichts einen furchteinflößenden Krieger machen und
den Helden erwecken, der hoffentlich unter dem schwarz-weißen Pelz und den
überzähligen Pfunden schlummert...
