The very first teaser trailer for Kung Fu Panda 2 is being run in front of DreamWorks Animation’s newest movie, Megamind, which just hit theaters this past weekend and took the #1 spot with a $46 million domestic take.
The trailer was also released on DreamWorks’ official Kung Fu Panda website, and you can see it here and now below!
The movie, for as long as its existence has been known, has been called Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom. Now it appears that they’ve dropped the Kaboom and just gone with the traditional numerical title. This saddens me a bit, as most of the sub-titles we see these days are pretty horrible and The Kaboom of Doom was actually pretty playful and fun. Just the number “2” is boring. Bring back the Kaboom!

Last week we found out that Gary Oldman would be joining the cast of Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom. Now DreamWorks Animation has revealed the names of some other actors who’ve joined the cast of the sequel to the 2008 hit, Kung Fu Panda.
Most interesting of them all is the addition of the man, the myth, the legend, Jean-Claude Van Damme. The action star has been pretty much disappeared off the Hollywood radar aside for the role as himself in JCVD and a couple of returns to his Universal Soldier role.
The great Gary Oldman has joined the cast of Kung Fu Panda: Kaboom of Doom. The movie is a sequel to DreamWorks’ animated hit, Kung Fu Panda, which brought in over $630 million worldwide when it was released in 2008.
Oldman will be voicing the role of the Peacock, who helps Po (Jack Black) to discover the location of some enemy bandits on his way to finding other pandas and learning about where he comes from. The Peacock, like most kung fu masters, has more to him than first appears.
It would be difficult for anyone to find an odder pairing than screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and the bumbling hero in Kung Fu Panda, but according to reports, that’s a match that has occurred recently.
Apparently Kaufman was brought in by DreamWorks to pen some touch-ups to the existing script for Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom, the sequel to the surprise animated hit of 2008. Kaufman’s spit-shine of the script, written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, is completely out of the realms that he usually works within.
Kaufman is best known as the writer of two of my own personal favorite movies, Adaptation and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. He also wrote Being John Malkovich, Human Nature, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, and Synecdoche, New York, which he also directed.
