Just a few weeks before Deadpool opened in theaters, en route to being one of the biggest movies of the year, DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda 3 pulled in some impressive numbers for its late-January debut. The animated sequel earned $41.2 million that weekend, before taking in $142.4 million domestically and $516.5 million worldwide. Earlier this week, this beloved adventure was made available on Digital HD, and to celebrate this release, we have an exclusive interview with Bryan Cranston, one of the new additions to the all-star voice cast.
Bryan Cranston lends his voice to Li, Po's long lost dad (Jack Black) in this animated sequel, with the actor revealing just how committed this team was on Kung Fu Panda 3, in regards to crafting a story everyone in the family can enjoy. He also talks about how animated films can be both intelligent and fun, and how proud he is of the film's storyline, which touches the hearts of little kids while also transcending to adults. We'll have to wait and see if this movie is successful enough for DreamWorks Animation to make Kung Fu Panda 4.
DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda 3 is not only one of the best reviewed movies of the year, but also one of the top five grossing films of 2016 worldwide. Everyone's favorite wise-cracking, dumpling-snacking hero is back in this sequel, which was a hit with audiences and critics alike. The film received an outstanding audience reaction with a coveted "A" CinemaScore and Certified Fresh on RottenTomatoes.com. 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment released DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda 3 Awesome Edition on Digital HD on May 13, with the Blu-ray and DVD arriving on June 28.
After reuniting with his long-lost father, Po travels to a secret village and meets tons of hilarious new panda friends and family members. But when the supernatural villain Kai challenges all the Kung Fu masters across China, Po must discover the teacher within himself and train his clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas! The bonus features include funny and action treats including 2 all-new Kung Fu Panda animated shorts, Everybody Loves A Panda Party Karaoke with Po, Make a Panda Party Paper Pal and more!
