Trailer of Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight
Everything in Po-land first appears to be normal in the new trailer. As we can see, the Dragon master is still at home, chowing down on bowls of noodles and exclaiming, “Skadoosh”. However, in a split-second mistake, Po decimates the entire town and allows the weasels to flee when a pair of wicked weasels called Klaus and Veruca Dumont attack, leaving the locals utterly disappointed. Po’s status as Dragon Master had been reduced to “pending” by suppertime. And to make matters worse, the neighborhood dumpling shop has dumped a box of Po’s Dragon Master miniatures, his adoptive dad, Mr. Ping, lamentably informs him. Ouch.
Whenever a door shuts, a window also opens. For Po, the window is British warrior Luthera (Rita Ora), also known as “The Wandering Blade”. Only Po can assist Luthera as she visits Po’s hamlet in pursuit of the Dragon Master. Eventually, he discovers that the only way to regain favor at home is to embark on a mission to save his nation.
The trailer majorly focuses on the new faces, including Luthera, Klaus, and Veruca. Not forgetting Po and his father. The teaser does not feature any of Tigress’s seasoned team members: Mantis, Monkey, Viper, or Crane.
