About Kung Fu Panda 4 Movie:

Kung Fu Panda 4 is an American animated martial arts comedy film produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Universal Pictures. It is the fourth installment in the Kung Fu Panda franchise, and the sequel to Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016). The film was directed by Mike Mitchell, co-directed by Stephanie Ma Stine (in her feature directorial debut), and written by Darren Lemke and the writing team of Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger.

It features Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, James Hong, Bryan Cranston, and Ian McShane reprising their roles from the previous films, with Awkwafina, Ke Huy Quan, Ronny Chieng, Lori Tan Chinn, and Viola Davis joining the cast as new characters.

Directors Jennifer Yuh Nelson and Alessandro Carloni were asked about the possibility of a fourth Kung Fu Panda film prior to the release of the third film in January 2016, with Nelson later saying in August 2018 that she was open to a fourth installment.

DreamWorks officially announced the fourth film in August 2022, with Mitchell, Ma Stine, and Rebecca Huntley attached as director, co-director, and producer, respectively, by April 2023. Most of the main voice cast was announced in December 2023, following Awkwafina’s casting in May of that year. Composer Hans Zimmer, who had scored the previous three installments (the first two with John Powell and the third solely) returned to compose the fourth alongside frequent collaborator Steve Mazzaro.

Kung Fu Panda 4 premiered at the AMC 14 Theater at The Grove in Los Angeles on March 3, 2024, and is scheduled to be released in the United States on March 8, 2024. The movie has also been shown by Universal at Columbia University to a limited amount of people on March 1, 2024.

As part of Universal’s deal with Netflix, the film will stream on Peacock for the first four months of the pay-TV window, then will move to Netflix for the next ten, and then will return to Peacock for the remaining four.
