The latest trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3 is out and it gives a closer look at some of the new characters and some plot points. The trailer begins with Po (Jack Black) struggling to step into the role of a teacher. The trailer then shows Po meeting his father, Li (Bryan Cranston), who brings Po to a secret panda village in the mountains. After showing a few of the villagers, the trailer shifts tone and gives closer look at the film’s villain, Kai (J.K. Simmons). Then we get see scenes involving the main plot of the film where PO must train the Panda village to fight against Kai. The trailer is also filled with jokes, some physical humor and what arguably be described as some bad puns giving the trailer an overall fun tone. Kung Fu Panda 3 will simultaneously open in the United States and China on January 29.
