New Trailer, Images, Release Date for The Paws of Destiny Released

Late on this post, but oh well. Still getting used to the limited features of Discussions. Apparently there can only be one image on a post, and no way to post additional images or even videos. Also can't use wiki text formatting, which means I can't even add the new synopsis properly.


So that said, all new information about the show has been added to its wiki page HERE. Feel free to share your thoughts about it here in this thread.

Is Master Shift based off Master Sennin-Sama from Dragonball?

I was reading the Dragon Ball manga and when I got to chapter 85 there was this one guy who acted almost exactly how Master Shifu acted towards Po when Po wanted the noodles, but this time it was over some holy water and towards Gokuu. This brought up the question: Is Shifu based off Sennin-Sama? (Read from right to left)

Episodes of LoA that you liked?

I know that LoA tends to be the punching bag of the franchise given it's lesser animation quality and even lesser writing quality, but there do seem to be some episodes that even some of the show's detractors like.

How can Kung Fu Panda 4 learn from Kung Fu Panda 3?

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?

Staff Openings

Hi all, just a heads-up that I'll be on the lookout for some new wiki staff. The former staff were all inactive for too long, so they were recently removed and now some spots have opened up.
Currently I'm prioritizing rollbacks and thread moderators. (Not looking for chat moderators because I never see the chat box being used. Still a nice feature to have though, which is why I haven't simply disabled it yet.) Criteria for each has been detailed below. I've also recently updated the "How to be promoted" section of the wiki administration page with more general criteria.
Not doing anything too formal about this - no applications, eliminations, time frames or the like. Just brief background & activity checks, and then just going by my best judgment in my own time.
If anyone is interested and meets good standards of the criteria, please let me know (either in this thread or on my wall). Again, no apps, but you'll be put on a short list. After that, I'll discern when the appropriate time to appoint people will be. Let me also know if you have any questions or comments.
Thanks! --§ρøττεδςταrღ(talk)

Weapons of KFP 1, 2 and 3

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.

Is the LOA Version of Po a Jerk?

Does anyone think that the Legends of Awesomeness version of Po is a Jerk? And if you think so, give me an example why you think that.

Kung Fu Panda Spin-Off Movie with Tigress as Main Character

So you know how they did a spin off movie for Puss in Boots from Shrek? Well, it got me thinking. What if they make a Kung Fu Panda spin off movie with Tigress as the main character?

Now don't get me wrong, I like Kung Fu Panda a lot. But one problem I have is that Tigress doesn't seem to get much of a spotlight. I mean, she didn't get to fight until near the end of the first movie. In the second one, she definitely had a bigger role, but didn't get to fight Shen head on. And the third was kind of in between for me. I mean, she did get to fight Kai somewhat, but all she did during the training montage was avoid the little girl Panda. For Legends of Awesomeness, some of the episodes that had Tigress were AWESOME, but I DID NOT like the episode "The Spirit Orbs of Master Ding". I mean, COME ON! It's not fun to see your favorite character get beaten and then get taunted without mercy, especially from Po.

Anyway, I have gone WAY off track. Back with the idea for a spin-off movie: Tigress would be the main character. She ends up finding out something about her past and decides to go on a Journey to discover her heritage. Along the way, she would meet a male Tiger who ends up tagging along. Po, Shifu, and the rest of the Furious Five would end up joining them, and there probably would be a rivalry going between Po and the male Tiger. In the end, Tigress discovers her heritage, what happened to her parents, and ends up coming full circle of who she is. I also had the idea that the male Tiger would be voiced by Chris Pratt (Lego Movie, Guardians of The Galaxy, The Magnificent Seven).

So yeah. Just wanted to get this idea out in the open and see what any of you think of it.

Bug "This video is not encoded on your device."

For some reason, when I try to play any video on here, I keep getting an error that says "This video is not encoded on your device," I went to avatar wiki to see if it was a Wikia wide problem but avatar wiki seems to be working fine since they still use youtube as a way to watch videos. I went to a few other Wikia's with also no issues with the videos. It appears to be an isolated issue with this wiki. Any suggestions on what the issue could possibly be.
Edit: It appears to be the video player itself as a few videos that are linked from youtube play fine, I just think that I need to find out the codec for the player and download it because I am having that same issue on Microsoft edge with that same video player. Hmm wired, it seems to be videos that are posted from the Wikia Video Library.

Kung Fu Panda Ships

I thought it would be fun to have a thread where people can talk about which KFP characters they ship ;).  My main ships are TiShen and TiPo ^-^

Detailed location maps?

Are there schematics, blueprints, or any picture that shows China with all the locations mentioned in the KFP universe (Gongmen City, Lee Da Academy, Wu Fortress for example) and the Jade Palace (everything from high to low - between the first stairstep to the Hall of Warriors). Doesn't matter if it is canon or fan-made.

Wanted pages

So...the Wanted Pages list is quite lengthy, isn't it? We probably have even more than are indicated since the maximum limit is 1000. I notice a number of them do appear to be redlinks to old polls/blog posts that have since been deleted-don't suppose an admin could do anything about those?

The Galapagos Islands in Kung Fu Panda

Hey guys! I'm new here, only been here a few days so far, so I thought I'd start a discussion.

We know about Oogway's homeland, the Galapagos Archipelago, as being where he was born, but nothing else. It's never shown, never mentioned, only on the website for the first movie.

Probably no one apart from Oogway fans like myself wonders what the Islands were like, especially during the time of his youth when he still lived there. What was the society like? The culture? The language? Oogway's childhood? Unless Dreamworks makes a prequel about Oogway, we'll probably never know what the Islands were like during Oogway's time.

One thing we do know. Oogway is about a thousand years old. The Galapagos Islands weren't known by the Europeans that long ago. They've only been known for about 400 years or so. For that matter, there are no indigenous humans of the Galapagos Islands as far as we know(although the Incas briefly visited at some point, leaving behind bowls and similar artifacts, indicating a visit but not permanent settlement).

Therefore, we can't replicate Oogway's culture off a real-life Galapagos native culture because there is none. That would make worldbuilding a fictional one rather difficult. 
However, we can research real-world cultures close to the Islands for inspiration, using their languages, religion, and lifestyles as inspiration, creating what an indigenous Galapagos culture might've been like if it really existed.

Most inspiration would come from native South Americans on the west coast of the continent, like the Inca, the Cayapa, and such tribes, as well as Polynesian cultures, since they're in the Pacific Ocean like the Galapagos Islands. The native language could include words from or similar to Quechua, the language of the Incas, as well as Polynesian words.
I'm particularly inspired by Disney's Moana, as it reminds me most of the Galapagos Islands out of all the fictional depictions of primitive or native cultures(real or not) that I've seen. Or perhaps it's just because I love Moana so much. Either way, Moana serves as a great inspiration.

I've been wanting to share this with other KFP fans, so let me know what you think! Share your own ideas, your opinions, whatever you have to say!
