Kung Fu Panda 3

Kung Fu Panda 3 is a 2016 3D computer-animated martial arts comedy film produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is the third installment in the Kung Fu Panda franchise, and the sequel to 2011's Kung Fu Panda 2. In the film, Po enters the panda village and re-unites with his birth father and other pandas, but problems arise when a villainous spirit warrior, named Kai, returns to the mortal realm and steals chi from the kung fu masters. To prevent Kai from taking chi from all kung fu masters and pandas, Po forms the army of pandas to battle Kai's jade minions and Po must become a master of chi to defeat him and save his friends. The film was directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and Alessandro Carloni and written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger. Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen, David Cross, James Hong and Jackie Chan reprise their roles from the previous films with Randall Duk Kim reprising his role of Oogway from the first film. They are joined by Bryan Cranston, J. K. Simmons and Kate Hudson in the roles of Li Shan, Kai, and Mei Mei, respectively. Kung Fu Panda 3 premiered on January 16, 2016, in Los Angeles. It received a limited release in China on January 23 for a special three-hour sneak preview and was released in the United States on January 29 in 3D. Like its predecessors, the film received generally positive reviews while grossing $521 million worldwide against its $145 million budget.

[first lines, Grand Master Oogway meditates in the Spirit Realm...]

Oogway:
Inner peace... inner peace... [a peach blossom petal lands on his nose] Itchy nose... [gently blows the petal away, but as he breathes in, it flies back into his nostril; he sneezes, and it flies off] Finally, inner peace... [sensing a blade coming at him] Now what? [catches the blade with eyes still closed...as he opens them, he sees a second blade coming. Using the first, he deflects both back to their owner...] Kai, old friend.

Kai:
[catches the returning blades] Master Oogway.

Oogway:
[bewildered] Our battle ended 500 years ago!

Kai:
Well, now I'm ready for a rematch.

Oogway:
Took you long enough! [laughs]

[Angered, Kai charges at Oogway, cutting through the floating rocks between them; Oogway manages to dodge]

Oogway:
You've grown stronger. [draws a symbol with his chi energy and launches it at Kai, who is unharmed]

Kai:
500 years in the Spirit Realm, you pick up a thing or two. [indicates his collection of jade pendants] I have taken the chi of every Master here!

Oogway:
[gasps, horrified] No!

Kai:
Yes! And soon, I will have your power, too!

Oogway:
When will you realize, the more you take, the less you have? [Anchoring himself with his chainblades, Kai smashes two floating rocks together on top of Oogway, whose chi shield dissipates; the chains wrap around Oogway, and he begins to petrify into jade]

Kai:
With your chi, I will finally be able to return to the mortal world. [pulls the chains holding up his green swords] And this time, you won't be there to stop me.

Oogway:
[warmly] Ahh... it was never my destiny to stop you. I have set another on that path. [Oogway petrifies completely, and his chi is absborbed by Kai; all that remains of Oogway is a small jade pendant]

Kai:
Then I will find him... and take his chi, too.

[At the Jade Palace, an arrow with a scroll flies towards the courtyard, but is caught in midair by Monkey; a number of other arrows surround Shifu as he reads another scroll]

Monkey:
It's from the Eastern Province! [hands Shifu the arrow]

Shifu:
Master Lizard, Master Ox, Master Eagle... all of them. [snaps the arrow in half] In every village from the sea to here, every Master in China has vanished.

Monkey:
Maybe they are all at a party?

Viper:
Monkey!

Monkey:
I didn't get invited either.

Shifu:
Kai has taken their chi. We are all that stand between him and the knowledge Oogway left in our care. [to Tigress] The villagers, evacuated?

Tigress:
Done, Master.

Shifu:
Crane, Mantis?

Tigress:
Still nothing.

Viper:
[gasps] Wait, it's them! [Crane and Mantis fly in...but on closer look, they're both jade zombies]

Shifu:
[horrified] No! [the jade Crane and Mantis land in front of Shifu and the others - as a large figure emerges in the mist, blades whirling in his hands] Kai!

Kai:
[looks at the giant statue of Master Oogway] Nice. Very tacky.

Shifu:
How dare you set foot on these grounds?!

Kai:
[sneering] Look at you pathetic fools, groveling at the feet of Oogway the Magnificent.

Tigress:
You are not fit to speak his name!

Kai:
I am not fit, little kitten? [Tigress growls and tries to lunge at Kai but Shifu holds her back] I fought by his side. I loved him like a brother... and he betrayed me. [calmly] Well, now I will destroy... [shouting] ...Everything he has created!

Shifu:
Go! [All friends fighting attack at Kai]

Tigress:
How that for a little kitten?

[final confrontation in the Spirit Realm]

Kai:
It took me 500 years to take Oogway's chi. I will have yours if it takes me 500 more!

Po:
[makes "chit-chat" gestures; his dragon avatar mimics the movement] Chitty-chitty-chat-chat, chit-chat! [Furious, Kai charges at Po, who begins to charge his chi energy] You want my chi so bad? Then take it! [channels his chi into Kai]

Kai:
[last words before his death] Yes! The power... is mine! [the jade pendants, the chi he has collected from the Masters, begin to break away from him] Wait! No! It's too much! It's TOO MUCH!! NO! UGH!!! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! [Kai begins to glow, overloaded with power, as the pendant of Oogway floats away from him] Nooooo!!! [In a flash of light, Kai is destroyed; back in the panda village, the jade pendant of Master Bear emerges from the spirit realm and shatters, releasing him]

Master Bear:
[in combat stance] Who, huh, where'd he go? [Masters Chicken and Croc are returned as well, followed by Shifu, Crane, Monkey, Mantis, and Viper]

Viper:
We're back!

Monkey:
Besties!

Mantis:
I'm still green, it didn't work! Oh, wait, that's my normal green.

Lei Lei [grabs Mantis, makes him do "kissy face" with Po's Tigress action figure] Greenie baby!

Mantis:
No! Not a baby! Antenna of Fear! Antenna of Fear...

Li Shan:
What about Po?

Tigress:
Have you seen Po?

Viper:
No... he's not here.

Mr. Ping:
[worried] Po, Po? Why isn't he back?

[In the Spirit Realm, after destroying Kai, Po floats away; the jade pendant containing Oogway's chi shatters, restoring him]

Oogway:
Dragon Warrior.

Po:
Oogway? Whoa! [floats right into the water, and then back up] I can't believe it! [Oogway laughs] Whoa... you are extra shiny.

Oogway:
As are you.

Po:
I know, right? It's like the best cape ever. When I run with it, then it looks really cool.

Oogway:
It suits you. You've grown.

Po:
Yeah, gotta lay off the Panda Buffet.

Oogway:
Grown up... [chuckles] ...As I hoped you would when I sent the message to your (real) father.

Po:
(It was you?) You sent the universe mail. Whoa!

Oogway:
Yes. Because the universe needed you.

Po:
Me? W-why me?

Oogway:
You finally became the panda you were always meant to be.

Po:
But... how'd you know I could?

Oogway:
On the first day we met. I saw the future of kung fu... [flashback to the first movie, Oogway choosing him as the Dragon Warrior] ...And the past. [flashback to Oogway learning chi from the ancient pandas] I saw the panda who could unite them both. That is why I chose you, Po. Both sides of the yin and yang... and my true successor.
