The character Shen was originally created as a devious mayor for Kung Fu Panda (2008), but was written out before production. See more »
In Kung Fu Panda (2008), Oogway's staff (later given to Shifu) was broken by Tai Lung. In Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011) it appears to be intact, but closer examination shows it's repaired with tape. See more »

This installment of Kung Fu Panda exceeded my expectations in all respects.
Animation is superb, characters greatly orchestrated, voice-acting is top-notch, fights are well choreographed and there is enough humor to make you feel that you have regained your childhood back!!! With ingenious methods, the actions scenes are executed. And in many parts where you would normally expect a punch line or superb dialogue, there will be an excellent goof-up which seems to tickle you just enough!! Kudos to the dialogues and screenplay.
The only negative (and that too a little one) is the storyline. I really expected something other than the plain old story of discovery and revenge.
But all-in-all, Kung Fu Panda 2 is one of the best animation movies ever made and I can safely say that this will be the best movie this summer!!!
