Darth Vader will be proud of the second trailer released by Dreamworks for Kung Fu Panda 3, as Jack Black?s character, Po, the food connosieur-turned-martial artist, Po, meets his father on top of the stairs of the training hall of the Furious 6, in an act that clearly pays homage to Star Wars.
The trailer shows Po?s dad played by Bryan Carston, going up the long flight of stairs, meeting Po, and uttering the famous line: ?I am your father.? Before collapsing in fatigue the same way the lovable panda-hero did in the first movie.
Po?s adoptive father, Mr. Ping, looks from the panda?s back to ask who he is.

The clip is short, but it does put emphasis on where the third movie?s plot is going. Po?s past will clearly be the center of the movie, and we?re pretty sure that his back story and the place where he originated will be tackled.
According to Screen Rant, the third movie in the series follows everyone?s?favorite Kung Fu fighting panda, in his journey towards his hometown, a secret panda paradise. However, problems arise when a new villain named Kai (J.K. Simmons) sweeps across China to destroy all the kung fu masters. In order to fight, Po must train the pandas in the village and create an army of deadly pandas. How cool is that?
