Kung Fu Panda to be shown in 3D
Kung Fu Panda is going 3D.
The animated Christmas special, to air on US screens in December, will be shown in 3D, reported Bleeding Cool.
According to the site, Steve Hulett, a member of the Animation Guild, has already seen it and has given it the thumbs up, saying: "DWA (DreamWorks Animation) creates kick-a*s dimensional cinema - the cuts and transitions were witty, making vivid use of the technology, and the gags played like gangbusters."
He also confirmed that the original voice cast from the movie "was in place", suggesting that Angelina Jolie, Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman will reprise their roles for the TV special.
The eagerly awaited sequel, Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom Of Doom, is currently in pre-production, with a release set for May 2011.
Consisting of the original star-studded cast, it will feature a new villain with a mysterious weapon so powerful it threatens the very existence of kung fu, and Po (Jack) must confront his past.
