Back in 2008, Dreamworks surprised the world with their sleeper hit animation Kung Fu Panda. Following it up with a film just as great, the inevitable sequel was quick to follow. Now, completing the trilogy, we're set to be reunited with our eponymous dragon warrior in the forthcoming Kung Fu Panda 3, and it has just received an awesome new trailer and poster so cut the chit-chat.

This evening,  Dreamworks Animation have released a brand-new trailer for the forthcoming threequel and it's absolutely incredible. The reveal sets up the premise of the film up very nicely and does a good job of introducing all the new characters and the film's antagonist Kai too - voiced by none other than J.K Simmons. It's an action-packed trailer and has lots of new footage to offer and, from what we can see, the project looks to retain the heart and warmth and humour of its predecessors. It certainly seems like it could be the best Kung Fu Panda from the trilogy yet.

And, better yet, accompanying the trailer, a new one-sheet poster has also been unveiled and reunites Po with his kind and has him babysitting some little pandas too. Of course, for the past two films, he has thought that he was the last of kind but that changed at the end of 2011's sequel and is one of the main things that the upcoming third film will address.

Here's the film's official synopsis:
In 2016, one of the most successful animated franchises in the world returns with its biggest comedy adventure yet, KUNG FU PANDA 3. When Po’s long-lost panda father suddenly reappears, the reunited duo travels to a secret panda paradise to meet scores of hilarious new panda characters.  But when the supernatural villain Kai begins to sweep across China defeating all the kung fu masters, Po must do the impossible—learn to train a village full of his fun-loving, clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas! 
With Jennifer Yuh Nelson and Alessandro Carloni at the helm, and starring the voice talents of Jack Black, Bryan Cranston, Kate Hudson, J.K Simmons, Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie, David Cross, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen and Dustin Hoffman, Kung Fu Panda 3 is set to release in the U.K on March 11th, 2016.
