When is Kung Fu Panda 4 Release Date?
Kung Fu Panda 4 is expected to be released on the 8th of March, 2024. The film will first be released in theaters in the U.S. before extending to other parts of the globe shortly. Of course, there is always the possibility that there may be a delay in the release of Kung Fu Panda 4. This may be brought on by production hiccups or to avoid a clash with another blockbuster theatrical release.
For instance, Kung Fu Panda 3 was supposed to be released as early as December 2015, but it was moved forward to March 2016 to avoid clashing with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Such a thing could happen again, but barring such occurrences, Kung Fu 4 has a release date of March 8, 2024. This will be about eight years after the 3rd film in the franchise was released.
Who is Kung Fu Panda 4 Villain?
If you are a devoted fan of the Kung Fu Panda film franchise, then you will know that each film gets its own fearsome villain. In the 3rd film, it was General Kai who wanted to eliminate all the kung fu masters in China. In the 2nd film, it was an evil peacock named Lord Shen who wanted to destroy China as a whole.
The first Kung Fu Panda film had Tai Lung, an evil kung-fu warrior who wanted to gain limitless power from the dragon scroll. The villain for Kung Fu Panda 4 is Chameleon, a horrible personality who wants to wreak evil and has the power to summon the past villains in the Kung Fu Panda universe. Therefore, Po has his work cut out for him as he not only has to battle Chameleon but also other villains he had previously defeated.
Cast of Kung Fu Panda 4
The lead cast member of Kung Fu Panda 4 is Jack Black, who voices the major character, Po. Black is set to reprise his role and has promoted the film at the 2023 edition of Cinemacon. Other returning cast members of Kung Fu Panda 4 are the likes of Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, David Cross, Jackie Chan, and Seth Rogen.
These five personalities voice the five acclaimed kung fu warriors. One of them was expected to emerge as the dragon warrior in the Valley of Peace, but it ultimately went to Po. They initially despise him for this but later join hands with him to fight evil.
We could also see the likes of Ian McShane (Tai Lung), Gary Oldman (Lord Shen), and J.K. Simmons (Kai) returning as cast members of Kung Fu Panda 4 since they are likely to be summoned back by the villainous Chameleon. It remains to be seen who will voice Chameleon, but it could be star actress, Awkwafina, who is one of the confirmed new cast members of Kung Fun Panda 4.
Where To Watch Kung Fu Panda 4
One can watch Kung Fu Panda 4 in the theaters when it is released in March 2024. One can also watch Kung Fu Panda 4 via home media platforms such as DVD and Blu-ray discs, but this will be a few months after its theatrical release. It may also be possible to watch it on streaming platforms such as DIRECTV, HBO Max, and Max Amazon Channel, but this will be some months after the theatrical release.
When is Kung Fu Panda 4 Release Date on Netflix?
It is hard to tell the exact date that Kung Fu Panda 4 will be released on Netflix. The streaming platform does have a deal with Universal Filmed Entertainment Group that allows it to stream animation from companies such as DreamWorks. But the terms of the deal is that they can only stream such works four years after release. So the movie may be released on Netflix around 2028.
