I have to say, in my humble opinion, Kung Fu Panda has become one of the best animated movie franchises in the 21st-century. With a lovable and adorable lead, strong supporting characters, and a highly interesting story arc, it's no wonder the franchise has long rivaled even those of Disney.
I was already impressed with the first movie. I had high hopes for the sequel. And when I saw it, it exceeded all of my expectations! "Kung Fu Panda 2" moved me, made me laugh, and it was simply inspiring. As a chubby one myself, I liked that they never made Po thinner and leaner. Yep, we big boys can fight with kung fu too! Well, at least Po can, I can't.
What I can do, however, is hound for autographs. And since the cast is a Hollywood goldmine, I went to its red carpet premiere! Damn, it was as if it was the Oscars that night. Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jacki Chan—all these A-list celebrities just kept descending on that red carpet. Not to spoil the movie or anything, but you know that scene when all of them go for the attack, and it's slow motion, and Po gets so tingly he mouths "I love you guys!" Well, that's how I felt when I saw these stars!
Each of them was as awesome as the next, and they all signed my and my little brother's posters. I remember Lucy Liu look really pretty. Jacki Chan seemed just so happy to be there. Dustin Hoffman, with all his years in the cinema, sort of looked out of place, but in a good way. Jack Black was just as cool as ever. And Angelina Jolie... well, I have no words!
I'll never forget this movie! I actually still watch from time to time. Not only for its cinematic, animated excellence but also because it was this movie that I really witnessed Hollywood before my very eyes!
Please note: Our inventory is limited as we may have only received a few posters in total. Most of our items are obtained from film premieres, studios, and from autographed hounds such as the one in the story above.
