DreamWorks Animation announced today that Kung Fu Panda 3 has been moved up from a March 18, 2016 release date to January 29, 2016. The other films scheduled for the new date are The Finest Hours, The 5th Wave and New Line’s untitled horror film.
Continuing on his now legendary adventures of awesomeness, Po must face two hugely epic, but very different threats: one supernatural and the other a little closer to home. This chapter in the continuing adventures of Kung Fu Panda is directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson, who also helmed the worldwide hit Kung Fu Panda 2 and features a script by series writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger.
Jack Black returns as the voice of Po in the film along with Gary Oldman, Dustin Hoffman, David Cross, Angelina Jolie, Michelle Yeoh, Mads Mikkelsen, Danny McBride, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan, James Hong, and Bryan Cranston.
The first two chapters of DreamWorks Animation’s critically-acclaimed “Kung Fu Panda” franchise opened in 2008 and 2011. Both films were honored with Academy Award nominations for Best Animated Feature Film. Together, they have generated approximately $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office.
Episode 3.20 – A Stitch In Time
Episode 3.21 – Under My Skin
Coming from humble beginnings, Lucy Liu was always taught to value what she had.
“I felt like they really gave me an appreciation for the care and love we had,” she tells PEOPLE of her parents, who immigrated to New York City from China.
“If we didn’t like what we had because it wasn’t spaghetti and meatballs, we were taught that there were children starving in other parts of the world and we were lucky to have food on our table,” she says.
So in 1994, when the actress, now 46, was in search of the perfect philanthropic cause to lend her time, it was important that children be at the heart of it. That’s how her involvement with UNICEF began. Ten years later, in 2004, Liu was appointed as a UNICEF ambassador for work within the organization.
When it was first announced that US network CBS was to adapt the Sherlock Holmes stories into a new series, Elementary, there was a collective sigh this side of the pond. Fresh from the success of BBC1’s Sherlock and Robert Downey Jr’s box office incarnation, did we really need another version of Arthur Conan Doyle’s super sleuth?
Three years on, Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu have proved us all wrong. Their acerbic partnership has delighted viewers for three series as Sherlock Holmes and Joan Watson crime-solve their way across New York City. But with Martin Freeman’s memorable Watson on British screens – and Jude Law’s moustachioed side-kick lighting up the silver screen – does Liu ever feel the pressure to make her female number two stand out from the crowd?
Lucy Liu is famous for many reasons – for playing a Charlie’s Angel, and also the bitchy Ling Woo in Ally McBeal, before nailing it as a badass assassin in Kill Bill. She most recently landed the part of Sherlock Holmes’ first female number two in US television series Elementary. We’ve seen her as many different guises, but never as a bristly, strict, clucking Japanese tutor, set on making her young charge princess perfect.
It might seem an unlikely casting, and it isn’t a lead role, but the part in question was for Studio Ghibli – a cult Japanese animation film studio, famed for its originality, creativity and imagination. Stars rarely turn down the opportunity to feature in its films and alumni include Christian Bale, Lauren Bacall, Matt Damon, Shia LaBeouf, Billy Crystal, Uma Thurman and Kirstin Dunst.
