‘Kung Fu Panda 4’ Sand & Spice Trailer: Jack Black and Awkwafina Team Up Against Viola Davis

Jack Black returns as Po in DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda 4, in theaters March 8, 2024.

Synopsis: After many death-defying adventures, Po, the Dragon Warrior, has been chosen to become the Spiritual Leader of the Valley of Peace, but before that can happen, he needs to find and train a new Dragon Warrior.

Seems simple enough. However, there’s been a recent sighting of a wicked, powerful sorceress named Chameleon (Viola Davis), a tiny lizard who can shapeshift into any creature. And Chameleon has her eyes on Po’s Staff of Wisdom, which would give her the power to re-summon all the master villains whom Po has vanquished to the spirit realm.

And so the adventure begins…

Kung Fu Panda 4 stars Dustin Hoffman as Kung Fu master, Shifu; James Hong as Po’s adoptive father, Mr. Ping; Bryan Cranston as Po’s birth father, Li, Ian McShane as Tai Lung, Shifu’s former student and arch-nemesis; Ke Huy Quan as Han, the leader of the Den of Thieves; and Awkwafina as Zhen, a quick-witted thief and Po’s new sidekick.

Kung Fu Panda 4 is directed by Mike Mitchell, co-directed by Stephanie Ma Stine and written by Jonathan Aibel, Glenn Berger and Darren Lemke.
