  • a quick google search provides formal information regarding that a fourth film is in development yet the articles all seem to get the cast all incorrect, which throws it all into doubt. original release was 2018 and delayed until recent, sometime in 2020 release - no set date. though probably best not to get people's hopes up too much...

    • A lot of the stuff I saw was just a bunch of articles ripping off eachother, the same article just reworded. One of them posted a few days ago even forgot to update the wording for present tense. There was a sentence that read something like "Kung Fu Panda 4 was thought to be released in 2018. Although the film was postponed until 2020 , 2 years from now".

      How could 2020 be 2 years from now? Just leads me to believe that none of the articles are legitimate. They all reference an "interview" with Jeffrey Katzenberg confirming a fourth film, but do not link or reference it in any of the articles. His only interview where Kung Fu Panda's future was mentioned was where he said they wanted to do "6 kung fu pandas and 2 more dragons". Which was some time ago..

      One site even contradicted itself, staing that no 4th installment had been confirmed, and then the same day, released another article that's going around stating that it was (the copy & paste one).

      " But recently, CEO of Dreamworks, Jeffrey Katzenberg, confirmed in an interview that there would be another movie soon for the series. The CEO further revealed that there are supposed to be six movies in the franchise, in total. So the fans can look forward to two more videos apart from these over the years. "

      The interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMU5LlGZQHU note that it's from 2012..

      It'll be in development when DreamWorks says it is.

    • All of those articles are false garbage.

      I've been trying for several weeks to filter them out of the news feed featured on the front page, but they just keep on coming back. They're likely automated in some way, like a machine is writing the articles with good SEO buzzwords from other articles and publishing them into a new one under a new site. Like Zara said, there's just so many inconsistencies for any one of them to be legit. It really doesn't seem like any of them were actually written by a human.

      Lots of sites make money just by getting someone to click, and that's a good method of automating it. But that's the Internet for you - can't do anything about it but just be aware of the tricks.

      So yes, the only news to be believed is whatever DreamWorks or any of their official partners states on verified outlets.

    • instead of using an auto generated feed from Google, you could just manually update the news template with actual official information from DreamWorks or their official partners. anyways, seeing the obvious errors threw the entire articles into doubt. its likely why someone thought it had some value.

    • Oh I'm definitely not getting rid of the automated feed, lol. I don't mind occasionally cleaning out the garbage articles, but I really don't have the time (or drive) to look up everything myself and manually list only the good stuff.

      The news feed also isn't completely useless. Seeing a steady stream of non-garbage articles reporting on similar topics can be informative. Right now it looks like it's about KFP2 coming to Netflix and a new DreamWorks water park. Those are fine to have. And eventually if KFP4 is officially announced, there will be non-clickbait articles from places like USA Today and Den of Geeks and others that will say so.

  • Are you the one who deleted shifu’s page the way it used to be? If so why?

      Loading editor...
    • No, the page was vandalised and was accidentally deleted due to a bug in the VSTF rollback system. I am working to restore it from the backup here.

        Loading editor...
    • Do you think it can be restored to exactly the way it was?

        Loading editor...
    • Yes, the entire page is stored on The Wayback Machine. You can just copy and paste the text, however, images and formatting, and references will have to be added manually. Unless User:nerfmaster8 has a backup.

    • there should be daily backups generated of each wiki, it would be better that staff spins up the feb 2 database backup and exports an xml dump of the select page history that was lost. Not sure if staff got back to SpottedStar or not...I made edits to my backup so there could be conflict when importing an xml file. looking at recent changes, restoring the database back to feb 2 would erase the damage caused since it started on feb 3; only content lost are the latest message wall threads

      Update: guess I missed Shifu, imported the revision

  • Hi Zaralith! :)

    Thanks for replying to message and understanding where I'm coming from, I really appreciate it. :) And going over my original message, I saw I made a bit of an error. It was supposed to say 'who better than one of the admins on KFP Wiki.' My bad, sorry about that :P

    Finally! I've found someone who is a fan of both franchises, Awesome! :) I undrerstand where you and Spottedstar are coming from in my thread and don't worry, I plan to take no profit from this project whatsoever. This is a fan animation like fanart and fanfiction. I'm doing it because I enjoy it doing animation and drawing. :) 

    Here's the thing, I've already come so far with this project and I don't wanna to drop it completely but I am open to change it around & rework concepts.

    So I would love to hear your insight and constructive criticism on this and I do have some story ideas if you are interested.

    What do you say? :)

  • friendly reminder, you can clear idle or away users from chat by kicking them as opposed to a ban since that won't show in logs. thought i would leave you a tip to save you time :)

    • not sure where spottedstar is but i did finish the tag swaps with my bot account, can you remove the bot flag from nm8bot? there's no need for the bot flag that i can think of at the moment. i would remove the flag myself but can't, staff restricted that for some odd reason.

  • Hey Zara. Just letting you know here that I've replied to your message on the wiki Gmail. Sorry for the long delay. :P

    There's also something I need you to read in there concerning social media in a couple of weeks. Please get back to me on that (on the Doc) as soon as you can.

    Thanks! :)

  • Im sorry, There is no specification that mei li is related to the imperial family. Spotted star told me that there is no specification mei li is related to the emperor. I will have to revert the imperial family. This is not speculation.

  • I designate age 58 for the emperor of china because he is lu Kang's grandpa and he lives in the forbidden city because most chinese emperors live in the forbidden city.

      Loading editor...
    • There's no evidence that his age is 58, so it is SPECULATION, and we do not allow speculation, sorry. Same goes for his location. Neither his age nor location are specified in the Legends of Awesomeness show, so we can't just write down speculation, as that is misleading and wrongful information.
