Prepare for more goofy laughs and fast-paced action as that Po and his fellow martial arts masters, the Furious Five, return in this animated sequel.

This time, it’s not only the Valley of Peace that’s threatened, but the entire future of kung fu itself, when a formidable villain, emperor peacock Lord Shen, emerges to take over ancient China and wipe out the martial art using a secret weapon more powerful than anything that’s existed before.

Assisted by a new group of fighting maestros, including Master Thundering Rhino and Master Croc, Po and his pals race to defeat Shen’s evil plan.

However, Shen proves trickier than anyone anticipated, forcing Po to confront his own mysterious past to unlock his full potential.

The creators of Ice Age deliver another animated delight, this time revolving around our feathered friends.

Combining amazing visuals with laughs and excitement, the tale sees rare macaw Blu swap small-town America for Brazil’s exotic Rio de Janeiro, having joyfully discovered he’s not the last of his kind.

Unfortunately, when he meets his female counterpart, Jewel, it’s far from instant attraction, because whilst he’s domesticated and cautious, she’s wild and fiercely independent. But amusing personality clashes become the least of the birds’ worries, after they’re stolen and have to stage a daring escape.

Thrown together and with the incompetent animal smugglers in pursuit, Blu and Jewel begin the adventure of a lifetime, learning lessons about love, friendship and courage along the way.
