Jack Black has had some terrific roles and performances, but this isn't the first time that he's been linked to the Kung Fu Panda franchise. As with all of the previous films, the series has already received a solid $ 1.8 billion in worldwide box office revenues, as well as an excellent 78% audience rating.
Jack Black has been in many excellent films and shows, but now he is returning to his best franchise, Kung Fu Panda. Black had already been pranked to return to the franchise by a new Netflix series called Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight, which premiered in July, and DreamWorks Animation announced that Kung Fu Panda 4 would be released in theaters in 2024.
The Kung Fu Panda franchise has already raised $ 1.8 billion worldwide box office income from the first three films. Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, David Cross, and Lucy Liu have all been invited to return for the fourth film.
The three Kung Fu Panda films have been favorable to critics and viewers alike, with most of them receiving a 70% and 80% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Kung Fu Panda 3 has a 96% certified fresh rating, indicating that the film will be able to recreate the character of Po in the future.
What will be interesting is to see what happens next with Po (Jack Black). Master Oogway had announced that Po would be his successor as Grand Master, and the last we heard of him, he was now in charge of the Jade Palace. Po was educating everyone at the palace, chi control, and kung fu, including his large panda family.
Kung Fu Panda put DreamWorks Animation on the map, which was mostly dominated by Disney and Pixar for many years in a row. Illumination has also begun to rise in recent years. However, this may be the time when DreamWorks surpass both Disney and Illumination.
