|There is a small but elite club of animated films that actually manage to improve upon their predecessors, with Toy Story 2 and Shrek 2 standing as the most notable examples of this. You can add Kung Fu Panda 2 to that list, as the film contains all of the elements that made the first installment such a success but also takes things further by exploring Po's mysterious past.
|As Kung Fu Panda 2 opens, Po (Jack Black) is clearly enjoying his new life as the fabled Dragon Warrior and the loveable panda spends his days alongside the Furious Five -- Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Crane (David Cross), Mantis (Seth Rogen), Monkey (Jackie Chan), and Viper (Lucy Liu) -- ensuring that the Valley of Peace remains free from harm. During a training session with his mentor, Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman), Po learns of a threat from a mysterious villain who wants nothing more than to destroy kung fu.
||《功夫熊猫2》里，以传说中的神龙大侠身份出场的阿宝（杰克•布莱克 配音）显然很享受这种新生活。这只可爱的熊猫和盖世五侠中的娇虎（安吉丽娜•朱莉 配音）、仙鹤（大卫•克罗斯 配音）、螳螂（塞斯•罗根 配音）、金猴（成龙 配音）、灵蛇（刘玉玲 配音）一起，日复一日地护卫着和平谷不受任何侵害。然而，一次跟着师傅（达斯汀•霍夫曼 配音）练功时，阿宝了解到功夫受到了威胁——有一个神秘的恶人正妄图毁灭功夫。
|Po and the Furious Five subsequently head off on a journey straight into the heart of China, where the evil Lord Shen (Gary Oldman) has rolled into town with his formidable army. (Lord Shen is a fierce peacock who has been plotting his revenge ever since he was banished from his village by his own parents.) Meanwhile, Po is suffering from parental issues of his own -- as he has been plagued by vague memories involving the true story of what happened to his birth mother and father.
