Mr. Ping mentioned that he raised Po for 20 years before he told Po he was adopted. However, according to director Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Po is in his 20s and according to Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Scroll Po was a teenager 10 years ago. However, in Kung Fu Panda 2 Shen waited 30 years to rule over Gongmen City alongside his cannon, probably since then he started to use fireworks as a weapon and it's not even mentioned or shown that Shen began to use fireworks as a weapon years before or it was less than 30 years years ago he attacked the panda village and was exiled, although Shifu mentioned Po found inner peace at such a young age.

Good animation! Good 3D! Story wise same old! same old!
At start it felt like that I have entered that awesomely animated familiar environment of kungfun with our favourite panda.
Sadly the same feeling remains the whole time. Don't get me wrong, fights are still fun but story wise you get the feel they are just trying to make things up now. Also it doesn't help to keep similar story structure every time. It just bores you much of the time. Not caring about the characters as you already know what their fate is going to be, you have ample amount of time to appreciate the animation. I really liked the 2-D animation that is shown for flashback. Moreover there's so much pseudo philosophical drag & knowledge sharing going on that it makes you feel "ya ya! just give me some more kungfun already!"
Now children would definitely love this film. But for any adult who have already watched the awesome first part & then the follow-up later, it could still be fun provided you are in really good mood (& remain so while ignoring (virtually) repeated script and zero character developments) and ready to mentally kungfu-dance through whole film on the song "Everybody's kungfu fightin'..." :D
