Po is set to return with an all new gang of martial art anthropomorphic animals in 'Kung Fu Panda 3', but this time he's reunited with his own kind - or so it may seem. Jack Black reprises the titular role and Alessandro Carloni joins previous director Jennifer Yuh Nelson at the helm.

After successfully defeating two nemeses with his unorthodox kung fu style in the previous two films, Po faces his biggest challenge yet with 'Kung Fu Panda 3'; he has to teach a whole clan of useless pandas the art of kung fu - something that he himself had trouble enough grasping to begin with. On the other hand, he's finally reunited with his biological father, who sensed his survival at the end of 'Kung Fu Panda 2', even though Po has finally found peace in Mr. Ping the goose being his true father.

This time, he struggles - ironically - to find a place among his new friends and family, but he has to learn to embrace them as another evil force is on the way. The ancient spirit of Kai wants to overtake China, with the might of the abilities of former kung fu masters behind him.
