Kung Fu Panda 3 is the best in the franchise. In Kung Fu Panda 2 (the favorite of most people), Lord Shen attacked the panda village, but there was nobody to save them. In Kung Fu Panda 3, Kai attacks the village and Po has to save them. You cannot say that's not the most beautiful thing. It's genius. I really thought the action and comedy was the best in this movie too. When Po gave Kai the chi, he didn't exactly give it to Kai. He gave it to the masters that he took the chi from. That's why he yelled "Wait, that's too much!" Also, at the beginning, Oogway told Kai "The more you take, the less you have." Then what happens? Kai dies from taking too much. Also, Po was taught Kung Fu with food. Then he taught the village of pandas with their talents. The whole "turn you into you" thing wasn't a callback to the beginning of the movie, it was a callback to Kung Fu Panda 1. Most people like Shen the most, but Kai is actually the best villain. He may not have been intimidating, but he had really great villain lines. When Shifu said "Oogway, forgive me." Kai held up the chi of Oogway and said "What do you say, Oogway? Do you forgive him?" Also, his music was obviously the best villain music in existence. I don't need to talk about comedy, action, or animation. Everyone already agrees that comedy, action, and animation in Kung Fu Panda 3 is better than the first two movies. A lot of people complain that the Furious Five didn't do much but I think I need to remind people that this movie is in the Kung Fu Panda franchise. Not "The Adventures of the Furious Five", because Po is one of the most entertaining main characters from any movies. I don't get how people think this is the worst or second best in the franchise. I think it's better than Kung Fu Panda 1 and 2 combined. Also, Oogway was in this. I think I said enough.
What's on your mind?
I have a question with the third movie
In the part when they show the origin of Oogway and Kai, all is well until there is but literally Kai absorbed a panda master and when Oogway banishes him to the world of spirits it is not seen that he has released the jade of that panda, then the jade of the panda. Poor panda stayed with Kai in the spirit realm for 500 years? And he was finally released when Kai was destroyed?
Please tell me :c

Based on this interview, the writers STRONGLY IMPLY that they are very keen on doing more KFP movies, and I highly recommend to watch this if any of you want to know more about the possibility of KFP4.
This interview was done in 2016 for KFP3 by DP/30 with Jonathan Aibel and Glenn berger, the writers of all 3 KFP movies.
Interviewer: Do you feel as though you left a trap door for the next one (KFP4)?
Glenn: no, we have no idea and we written ourselves in a corner but...
Johnathan: this is it if people do not see this then there will not be any more (jokingly), that is my solum pledge.
Glenn: This one definitely does not end in a way that suggest... the first one ended with a question: why is his father goose? The second one ended with the question: wait who is that guy who said my son is alive? The third one (KFP3) does not end in a way that immediately suggests what the Fourth (KFP4) will be, but..
Jonathan: But it ends with new world in a way and a new group of people all together so... Hmmm, we should start thinking about that!

Was Kai going to use the chi to take over the world, or something?

It's so hard to believe that KFP 3 is 5 years old because 5 years ago it would've been 5 years since KFP 2 and now it's gonna be 10 years. Wow does time fly!
So I have a big question for you guys, do you think Kung Fu Panda 3 reached it's full potential? Do you think it was as good as it could've been?

Dreamworks when making KFP2:Were making 6 of these in total
DreamWorks when making KFP3:This is the last one.
This is how Tales feels about DreamWorks with Kung Fu Panda. What do you think about it? Do you agree/disagree?
So I was doing a little bit of research on animation and Oscar History and that's when I discovered something that all of the Kung Fu Pandas (except for 3) were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
Kung Fu Panda was nominated in 2008, but lost to, in my opinion, one of Pixar's best films, Wall-E.
Kung Fu Panda 2 was nominated in 2011, but lost to Gore Verbinski's Rango.
And Kung Fu Panda 3... didn't get nominated at all :(
Now I know that everybody here absolutely loves the Kung Fu Pandas, but I'd like to know what you guys honestly think. Do you think these movies are Oscar-worthy? Do you think they should have won over there competitors? Or do you think they're losses made sense based on there competition? What about KFP 3? Should it have been nominated for the by the Academy? Why or why not? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
