Universal has set March 8, 2024, for the release of Kung Fu Panda 4, the next movie in the popular Dreamworks animated series. No plot details were given for the Kung Fu Panda 4 movie because it was still in the early stages of production, but now that a release date has been set, fans can look forward to seeing their favorite characters on the big screen again.
The directors of the upcoming animated movie haven’t been named yet, but that’s likely to change as work on Kung Fu Panda 4 gets underway.
Jack Black, who plays Po in all of the movies and spin-off shows, will probably play everyone’s favorite panda again in the fourth movie. Since the movie is still in the early stages of production, it’s not clear if Angelina Jolie or Dustin Hoffman will be back to voice characters

The first Kung Fu Panda movie came out in theatres in the summer of 2008. Critics and audiences liked it, and the movie was nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film. Kung Fu Panda was well received by critics and made a lot of money, so it became one of Dreamworks’ most profitable franchises, along with Shrek, Madagascar, and How to Train Your Dragon.

In 2011 and 2016, the movie got two sequels that told more about Po’s past as he got used to being the Dragon Warrior. Due to how popular the movies were, they spawned several short films and three spin-off shows: Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness on Nickelodeon, Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny on Amazon Prime Video, and Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight on Netflix.
The Bad Guys, which was made by DreamWorks Animation and came out earlier this year, was well-liked and did okay at the box office. Even though the animation studio is doing well, it looks like they are also bringing back some of their older franchises. Along with the announcement of a new Kung Fu Panda movie, Dreamworks is also making a sort of return to the Shrek franchise later this year with the release of another Puss in Boots spinoff movie that will use the same 2D/3D hybrid animation that was popularised by Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
On March 8, 2024, Kung Fu Panda 4 will come out in theatres. Check out the trailer for the Netflix movie Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight.
