‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ adds Bryan Cranston, Mads Mikkelsen and Rebel Wilson, set to open Christmas 2015
The voice cast for DreamWorks Animation’s sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 is growing as Heat Vision reports that Bryan Cranston, Mads Mikkelsen, and Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect) have also been set as new additions to the film.
The returning cast of Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, and( other unspecified actors) are reprising their roles from the first two animated films.
Kung Fu Panda 2 director Jennifer Yuh Nelson returns to helm the third chapter in the series.
Story details are firmly under wraps, but the ending of Kung Fu Panda 2 provides a strong hint that the third film will involve Black’s Po meeting his real father. producer Guillermo Del Toro previously told Collider that Kung Fu Panda 3 has “the most formidable villain in the series,” and either Cranston or Mikkelsen would certainly fit that bill.
Kung Fu Panda 3 will now open on December 23, 2015 – moved up from March 2016.
