Did You Know?

Trivia

In the deleted scene in which Mr. Ping visits Po at his barrack, the wok that struck Tai Lung in the face from the first film can be seen, as well as a drawing of Po (which he likely did himself) with six-pack abs, as well as a poster of the late Master Thundering Rhino standing in front of the Tower of the Sacred Flame from the second film.

Goofs

Mr. Ping mentioned that he raised Po for 20 years before he told Po he was adopted. Howerver, according to director Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Po is in his 20s and according to Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Scroll Po was a teenager 10 years ago. However, in Kung Fu Panda 2 Shen waited 30 years to rule over Gongmen City alongside his cannon, probably since then he started to use fireworks as a weapon and it's not even mentioned or shown that Shen began to use fireworks as a weapon years before or it was less than 30 years years ago he attacked the panda village and was exiled, although Shifu mentioned Po found inner peace at such a young age.

Sublime animated picture.
9 March 2016 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

The Good Stuff (in order of awesomeness)

1. Superb animation and various art styles used. Hits are emphasized well with excellent sound design and voice acting. Good action.

2. Jokes are (mostly) good, made me laugh out loud multiple times.

3. The plot and pacing is pretty good and character development is adequate.

The Bad Stuff (in order of amplitude)

1. Antagonist is not really memorable with vanilla personality and motivation.

2. Film is obviously meant for a young-ish audience and contains some irritating slapstick and bad jokes.

3. 99% of Panda characters are completely forgettable.

Should you watch it: Probably, yes. I can't stress enough how good some of the visuals are.
