Kung Fu Panda 3

Sweet and satisfying second sequel

A continuation of the saga of Po, the affable everybear who when pressed can tap into serious heroism and mystical powers. Po meets his real father (spoiler: it’s not the goose) and discovers a whole society of peace-loving pandas, which he must then whip into a clever fighting force to battle a power-hungry, green-eyed bovine bully set on their elimination. Fists fly along with the one-liners, all against a lovingly rendered backdrop of visuals in a variety of animation styles. The A-list voice talent includes Jack Black, Bryan Cranston, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie and J.K. Simmons. (95 min)
