Your kids are home from school, you're just getting home from work, hoping to maybe unwind with a cold one... but, no! DreamWorks has to unleash clips from not one, but two upcoming animated confections, sending your kids bouncing off the walls.
First up is "Kung Fu Panda 2," the sequel to the 2008 hit featuring the voices of Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Ian McShane, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen and Lucy Liu. They're all back for the sequel, except McShane, of course, who voiced the vanquished villain, Tai Lung.
This time out Po (Black) must once again join forces with is old friends to stop a formidable foe with a secret. We're underwhelmed. The film comes out May 26.
