‘Kung Fu Panda 4’ release date and trailer drop

Kung Fu Panda 4 is set to hit the theatre screens on 8 March 2024. Along with the casting news, it has been revealed that the film’s first trailer debuts on 14 December 2023, offering audiences a glimpse of Po’s new adventures.

Kung Fu Panda 4 CAST?

Plenty of other stars are set to return for "Kung Fu Panda 4." Dustin Hoffman, James Hong, Bryan Cranston, and Ian McShane will reprise the roles of Shifu, Mr. Ping, Li Shan, and Tai Lung, respectively. They'll be joined by some exciting new talents as well. Ke Huy Quan, hot off major roles in "Everything Everywhere All at Once" and "Loki," will portray Han, leader of the Den of Thieves. Viola Davis will bring the terrifying Chameleon to life — clearly, playing the bad guy in "The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes" suited her well. Awkwafina will round out the cast as Zhen, the street-smart fox Po teams up with. A few other new characters have emerged who don't yet have actors attached, like a mysterious stingray-like creature Po takes down in a teaser image.


In "Kung Fu Panda 4," audiences will find Po a little bit wiser, less clumsy, and more assured. He's a Dragon Warrior in full ... until he's called upon to pass the mantle to someone else and become the Valley of Peace's spiritual leader. This is a tall order: Po must learn how to become a spiritual leader while also seeking out and training up a new Dragon Warrior to replace him. Things get even more complicated with the sinister Chameleon enters the scene. A powerful sorceress who can transform into any creature, the Chameleon wants to get her hands on Po's Staff of Wisdom so that she might reassemble the foes Po vanquished in previous installments and steal their skills.
