The Dragon Warrior has to clash against the savage Tai Lung as China's fate hangs in the balance. However, the Dragon Warrior mantle is supposedly mistaken to be bestowed upon an obese panda who is a novice in martial arts.
Tai Lung is the only villain in the Kung Fu Panda franchise to not have an army of his own, unlike Lord Shen and his wolf army and Kai and his Jade Zombie army.
Legend tells of a legendary warrior whose kung fu skills were the stuff of legend.
After Shifu is done training Po and invites him to eat dumplings, Po takes a dumpling which then returns in the next shot.
The opening and closing credits are carried out in stylized 2D animation, which resembles Chinese shadow puppetry.
While originally only a 2D release during its 2008 theatrical run, Dreamworks Animation later produced a 3D version. This version was released on Blu-ray in 2011 to coincide with the home video release of Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011).
