I preffered the other trailer honestly. The marketing diffrerences are interesting.
^ Yeah, I think they purposely took the more "funnier" approach with the English trailer as opposed to the Chinese trailer's more action-packed, emotionally driven one. My guess is because Chinese audiences would probably be offended if a film about their country and culture was advertised as "funny." It does kind of disappoint me that DreamWorks thinks the only way to pump up everyone else about their film is to show how funny it is.
EDIT (April 27, 2019): New forums won't allow more than one video to be featured in a thread. So here's the Chinese trailer:
^ Good point. I thought the reason could be that the Chinese just take cinema more seriously. I'm just sweeping with broad strokes though. I hope KFP3 is as advertised in the Chinese trailer.
those were both beyond awesome! Chinese one was better but does anyone have a translation of what Shifu said? only thing I didn't understand...
^ Here's a link to a Tumblr post of someone who found a translation:
^ ooh thanks
a few observations on the chinese trailer: i see Crane and Mantis in some sort of greenish color with green glow eyes and look like statues... Is this what they mean by "defeating all the kung fu masters" Oogway's back!
I see greenish goblin, guess those are the "henchmen"? looks like they are named "hombres"
Kung Fu Panda and Star Wars will destroy the box office this coming holiday for sure. Hopefully I'll get invited to an advanced early screening of Kung Fu Panda 3 like I did for the other two movies ;) There is definitely a lot to break down in these two trailers. I think what I am most looking for is the somewhat spiritual jounrey that Po was taking with Oogway, shown in the Chinese trailer.
