  • Via The Nightfly with Dave Juskow featuring exec. producer/showrunner for DreamWorks Animation Mitch Watson. Talks about it @1:19:42 in the audio clip, mentioning that it'll be serialized, released on Amazon, more like the films, and will bring back Mick Wingert as Po.

    • I guess we'll see if they learned from the mistakes of LOA. Already very happy to hear that it'll be serialized - finally some legit storytelling rather than, "Here we go, Po screws up again and spends the rest of the episode fixing it, then everything goes back to normal like it never happened." That got really old and dry in LOA.

      Some other hopes for the show:

      • More non-Po character development - Love Po, but I definitely want the franchise's other characters to get some love too. Really hoping for more on the Furious Five personally.
      • Bring in the pandas from KFP3 - Speaking of characters, I'll be pretty disappointed if we don't get to see any of the latest film's new characters.
      • Keep adding short 2D animation segments - This was the one of the very few things LOA did right, and I hope they continue that in this new show.

    • What does serialized mean?

        Loading editor...
    • ^ Means it'll have one ongoing story back-to-back with the episodes, much like a lot of larger mainstream shows rather than most cartoon shows that typically do procedural "one and done" episodes (like LOA).

    • Oh I see.

      Can people watch stuff on Amazon for free?

      Most of the time, since it is an amazon exclusive, it is only avalible to its subscribers and those subscriptions are not free, i was hoping for it to be on netflix as well as i do have a netflix account to watch anything. on there.

    • Well, this is certainly interesting. It will be nice to see a more serious take on franchise as an animated series. LoA was fun and made some interesting additions to the lore, but it definitely had its problems. I almost hope it'll bring in some of the elements of LoA-like Fenghuang-but give them the interpretation they really deserve.

    • Aw man. No news on Kung Fu Panda 4. It is just unfortunate the new kung fu panda series will not be released on television like Legends of Awesomeness.

    • ^ Why "unfortunate"? It's just being released on a different viewing format, that's all. And it makes sense - lots more people nowadays watch Internet streams over traditional TV broadcast, hence why lots of other entertainment franchises are doing the same thing in creating a web series (or at least providing their content online in some form).

      Might also be a good sign that this series will be handled with much more care than LOA. I personally feel like most TV shows nowadays have the bar set pretty low, unless they're on premium channels like HBO. LOA had to present itself in front of a default, Nickelodeon-themed target audience, but a web series might attract a different audience. I'd like to see how that goes for the first few episodes.

    • They might release it on netflix, hopefully.

    • ^ If DreamWorks has already made deals to release on Amazon, then I highly doubt it'll ever show up on Netflix. Especially with the recent news of Netflix wanting to push for more of their own original content (50% by the end of 2018). In fact, I bet it might be licensed out for original programming, thereby making it unavailable anywhere else.

        Loading editor...
    • Question is, would they be likely to ever release it on DVD?

        Loading editor...
    • ^ Lol, is this just a brainstorming session of how to legally watch the series on anything else but Amazon? :P

      I wouldn't count on it, or at least (for the sake of being a little bit hopeful) anytime soon after the series releases. The physical media audience is also dissipating - not as much as TV, but still noticeably. Plus both Netflix and Amazon very rarely release their originals on DVD/Blu-ray unless they're vastly popular, like Netflix's Orange Is the New Black. I don't think a Kung Fu Panda series will ever be THAT popular, unfortunately.

      Best odds are a very weak "maybe", but keep in mind that the ones for LOA never did all release. It'll still depend on its popularity - probably not gonna happen if there's no public demand for it.

      Well, at this point we know so little about it that there's not much else to discuss. :D

    • ^ Hopes and predictions are always good discussion topics. You and I have already kinda touched on that. Seems to me a much more interesting and stimulating of a conversation than, "Eh, I wish it was on _______ instead..."

        Loading editor...
    • Fair enough. I'm definitely hopeful that this series will be in keeping with the character development present in the films; LoA always had this weird mixture of the Furious Five and Shifu's original attitudes towards Po mixed with what they felt towards the end of the first film. It'll also be nice if any character development that takes place in the series remains in place-I get that true change can take time, but too many LoA episodes pretty much only referred to previous ones by saying "oh yeah we fought that one time."

    • You and me both.

    • Don't you think it would be more sutible to create a seperate thread for hopes and predictions for the series and save this one for general news and disscussions going towards the series so we are not going back and forth between predictions and news, it would really be a mess having to switch back from one topic type to another.

    • ^ The entire KFP News board is for that purpose. Doesn't hurt in the meantime to discuss what we'd like to see.

      Guess it's a bit misleading from my original post when I said that I'll be updating this thread w/ more news, but honestly I was assuming more news about the show would be released relatively soon, but it obviously hasn't yet. So I'll remove that.

      yeah your probably right, since the series is supposedly in its early stages, we won't get much information untill the series progresses along production. I think that if we do have new information concerning the series, any new news or updates then we can but the word update(in bold or caps or both) to indicate any new information concerning the series when creating a new post, and when a plot or snyposis is released, then we can create a page or something and update that page as more information comes out. Besides, i don't even think that we got an official announcement about the series.

    • Yeah, haven't seen it anywhere but here-even the Wikipedia crowd doesn't seem to have caught on to it.
