On June 6 2008, the first kung fu panda film came to theaters and started one of the most bodaciously awesome movie franchises in history, and on that day in 2020, its the 12th anniversary of the film. And the franchise has been growing stronger ever since, what are your thoughts on this awesome milestone.

In 2008 Kung Fu Panda was easily one of the best animated films created for its combination of humor, character progression, and great action pieces. The second film, like Empire Strikes Back, went a darker route, and while the humor was arguably better in the first film, it’s focus on Po’s backstory and the life or death threat presented by Shen’s weapons created an experience more enjoyable than the first movie. So what happened in the third film? Not a lot. Watching Po sleep in and roll around is not very enjoyable, and the humor at least for my tastes was quite lacking. With very little interaction from the furious 5, a villain that ultimately wasted the potential of J.K. Simmons, and the cringe worthy “Chit chat” scene, what do you think Kung Fu Panda 4 could learn from the third film?
Some of the weapons seen and used in the movies are pretty straight forward in what they are no research or guess work required but others are difficult to find (If you'll pardon the pun) hide or hair of, my question spesifically has to do with the paired weapons seen being used be master storming ox in KFP2 and master bear in KFP3 I don't know if these weapons and different types of the same weapon or two different weapons but i can't find anything like them in my search, help please.
Mr. Ping mentioned he raised Po for 20 years before Mr. Ping told him he was adopted and behind-the-scenes it's mentioned that Po is in his 20s, in Secrets of the Scroll Po was a teenager 10 years ago and Kung Fu Panda 2 Shifu mentioned Po found inner peace at a such young age. However, in Kung Fu Panda 2 Shen waited 30 years to rule over Gongmen City alongside his cannon probably waited ever since then he started to use fireworks as an weapon, it's not even mentioned or shown that Shen began to use fireworks as a weapon years before or it was less than 30 years ago for the panda massacre and how could Shen's parents be concerned for about a long 10 years before they had to know Soothsayer's prophecy?
Shifu reffered ducks and not geese to them who commented and went past Po.
Po did not know what Chi was before Shifu shown and told him about it, but in Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness he already knew what chi is.
Po still had his Tigress action figure, but in Secrets of the Scroll a rabbit kid got all of his Furious Five action figures Po later didn't need them anymore.
It showed that Po was miserable to roll and seemed he did it first time, but in Kung Fu Panda 2 he was already able to roll?
Why was Shen evil? it show first he wanted to make weapons with fireworks gunpower because he wanted to rule over China, but how can he become evil because of that and why he wanted to rule over China that had nothing to do with him and not only his own kingdom. Shen would at least get his will to rule over a kindom since he was even a prince and the only heir after his parents to rule over their own kingdom, usually princes and princesses who have and are jealous of their older siblings who are the next to rule over their kingdom and advisers who dislike their job or never get any praise and honor, become powerhungry and will only rule over their own kingdom instead of entire country or the world that have nothing to with them.
Why did Shen want to make an end of kung fu? Shen was even a kung fu master, kung fu had nothing to do with his backstory, his main goal was to conquer China and kung fu could also be useful to conquer China. Shen created a cannon that would put an end of kung fu, but it's not only kung fu it should make an end of if there are anything else that are as powerful or more powerful than kung fu, like chi.
How could the kung fu masters believe cannon could put an end kung fu, not even first that Shen atleast had more than one cannon to put an end of kung fu and conquer China and create multiple cannons quickly that they should rather stop him from doing instead, and how could even Po believe a cannon figurine was Shen's actual cannon when it was too small too put an end of kung fu and conquer China and didn't even laugh because of that?
Why did only Po and the Furious Five go to stop Shen, wasn't there many other kung fu masters than just Po, the Furious Five, Shifu, Storming Ox and Croc who could also go to stop Shen if they needed more help?
Are not kung fu masters smarter, too quick and has high strength to hit the cannons? The kung fu masters seem weaker than they normally are because of they doubted over themselves because of the cannon, but cannon is too slow and heavy to swing fast enough to shoot and can't shoot in all directions in one time if there are many more kung fu masters than cannons and are in different directions, even Tai Lung was shown to be cunning and swift enough to avoid firing weapons and was able to defeat the Anvil of Heaven, the Furious Five and Shifu on is own, Tigress hit the cannon down to the bottom floor of Tower of the Sacred Flame and Kai easily defeated many kung fu masters by taking their chi on his own. Shen must at least have kung fu skills and learn his wolf and gorilla army kung fu to defeat kung fu masters and could study and develope a dark and stronger kung fu style to put an end of other traditional kung fu styles. Kai and Taotie could make an end of kung fu, Kai easily defeat many kung fu masters by taking their chi on his own and once Taotie created a machin that easily defeat Po, Shifu and Furiouse Five (without Tigress).
Why was Shen's gorilla army also loyal to Shen if they didn't also massacred the panda village and wasn't exiled too?
Why did Thundering Rhino let himself get a blow by cannon instead of to step aside? How could the other kung fu masters survive blow from the cannon when Thundering Rhino who was easily die of just a one blow, but bigger and stronger? Po survived probably because of his enormous body fat. but Thundering Rhino was even bigger and stronger.
Wasn't most important to stop Shen from conqured China than to stop him to put an end of kung fu?
Did Shen want to take revenge on his parents? It were his parents who banished Shen becasue he want to conquer China and massacred pandas, but why did Shen still want to seek revenge when his parents was nevertheless died before his return?
Why is Thundering Rhino's physical appearance different than in Kung Fu Panda Holiday? Why is shown in the credits of Kung Fu Panda 2 Po made the the Furious Five action figures when he was a child if he was fan of kung fu since he was a teenager and the Furious Five were just formed then as reveald in Secrets of the Scroll?
Why is even shown or mentioned that Shen began his plan years before or it was lesser than 30 years ago for the panda massacre and when he was exiled if it was 20 years ago as revealed in Kung Fu Panda 3?
In Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, Po never went to school as a cub. However, in the credits of Kung Fu Panda 2, young Po is seen in a schoolhouse.
I liked KFP 2 because it had a lot of suspense and action.

KFP 3 is not as bad as other franchise sequels in film but I just want to forget about it. Visually, it was fantastic but the story seemed a little lackluster. Am I the only one who doesn't like it?
Hey guys, Before KFP3's release, box office analysts projected it would make in between the first and the second films gross ($631 million and $665 million respectively. Kung Fu Panda 3 has "only" grossed $437 million, as well as having the lowest domestic opening weekend of any of the films. Could this "disappointing" gross affect a sequel being produced?
In light of the fans that are already looking forward to the next film (assuming there will be one), here's a discussion thread on what you'd like to see, or what you think you WILL see, etc.
