Parent Pages are an effort to provide specific factual information to concerned parents so they can make responsible and informed decisions about what material their children consume—not only in the media, but also on the wiki itself.

This project was formerly a community-wide effort across Wikia (now FANDOM), but has since been discontinued. However, this wiki has elected to independently continue with the project in hopes to keep providing accurate, up-to-date information to parent readers.

For more information, see Parent Pages/FAQ from FANDOM.

NOTE: The Kung Fu Panda media detailed on this page is only that which is currently available to the public. Media that has expired or been removed in some manner (e.g. discontinued apps, out-of-print books, etc.) has not been included.

Unexpectedly chosen to fulfill an ancient prophecy, Po's dreams become reality when he joins the world of kung fu and studies alongside his idols—the legendary fighters Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey—under the leadership of their teacher and trainer, Master Shifu. But before they know it, the vengeful and treacherous snow leopard Tai Lung is headed their way, and it's up to Po to defend everyone from the oncoming threat. Can he turn his dream of becoming a kung fu master into reality? Po puts his heart—and his girth—into the task, and the unlikely hero ultimately finds that his greatest weaknesses turn out to be his greatest strengths.
Main Characters:
Similar Films: Kung Fu Panda 2, Kung Fu Panda 3
Availability: DVD, Blu-ray Disc, Digital HD
Rating: PG
Sequences of martial arts action. —MPAA
Violence and Intensity: Tame animated martial arts. Mild intensity.
Not surprisingly, there's lots of martial arts action -- expect tons of high-flying clashes that include punches, kicks, falls, and more. That said, the fights are generally more thrilling than frightening, though they could upset kids 5 and under -- particularly the sequence in which villain Tai Lung breaks out of a maximum security prison. —Common Sense Media
Language: Very mild.
Fairly clean, though the word "suck" is used prominently, and insults are hurled at Po by nearly everyone. —Common Sense Media
Sexual Themes and Nudity: None.
Drugs and Alcohol: None.
Crude Humor? or Comic Mischief: Mild. Some fat jokes and other insults are made by the other characters in reference to Po.

Length: 91 minutes
Genre(s): Action - Adventure - Comedy

But Po's new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain, who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. It is up to Po and the Furious Five to journey across China to face this threat and vanquish it. But how can Po stop a weapon that can stop kung fu?

Sequences of martial arts action and mild violence. —MPAA
Violence and Intensity: Tame animated martial arts and mild weapon violence. Shen and his henchmen use cannons at the characters, but the impact is not shown. Mild intensity.
Plenty of hand-to-hand combat. The fight scenes are fast and furious, but hardly anybody seems to get injured. An important theme here is modernization, as the martial arts warriors must face off against an opponent who's armed with gunpowder and cannons. Scenes involving a baby Po being separated from his parent (and the parent's implied death) may upset some kids. —Common Sense Media
Language: None.
Sexual Themes and Nudity: None.

Sequences of martial arts action and some mild rude humor. —MPAA
Violence and Intensity: Tame animated martial arts. Mild intensity.
Lots of martial arts fighting, both in groups and one on one. Villain Kai, an angry supernatural bull monster, is intense and scary, as are his jade warriors. Sad flashbacks to Po's separation from his mother when he was a cub. Key characters are captured/in danger. Po makes a big sacrifice that could upset some kids. Additional creative fighting via the use of Chinese food -- spring rolls, dumplings, etc. -- as well as nunchucks and other means of attack. Perilous trek to panda village. Slapstick falls/crashes. —Common Sense Media
Language: Very mild.
Infrequent use of words including "stupid," "butt," "loser," "idiot," and "shut it." Some bathroom humor. —Common Sense Media
Sexual Themes and Nudity: None.
Mei-Mei is very flirtatious with Po and others, though nothing comes of it. —Common Sense Media

TV Parental Guidelines

Violence and Intensity: Tame animated martial arts. Some mildly suggestive weapon violence.
As in the movie, there are a couple of scenes of high-flying martial-arts action with kicks and punches, but the effect isn’t scary at all. A subplot follows a character’s efforts to get Po to kill him (he puts himself in the path of knives and tries to boil himself, for instance) after he feels he’s brought shame on his village, but again, the effect is more humorous than frightening. —Common Sense Media
Language: None.
Sexual Themes and Nudity: None.
Drugs and Alcohol: None.
Crude Humor? or Comic Mischief: None.

TV Parental Guidelines

Violence and Intensity: Tame animated martial arts. Very mild intensity.
Martial arts-style combat is common both in training scenes and in the protagonists' face-offs with villains. Machines play a role in the fighting at times, which ups the intensity but never really hurts the characters. Mild peril and verbal threats of harm and implied death may be too much for very young viewers. —Common Sense Media
Language: Very mild.
Characters call each other names like "moron" and use "butt" infrequently. —Common Sense Media
Sexual Themes and Nudity: None.
Some [characters] talk about boyfriends and girlfriends. —Common Sense Media
Drugs and Alcohol: None.
Crude Humor? or Comic Mischief: Mild. Some fat jokes and toilet humor are used by the characters.
