As a special treat for Freshers week, we will be putting a special outdoor screening of Kumg Fu Panda; weather permitting. Bring along a picnic, a blanket and your friends, and enjoy the modern animated classic in the beauty of the outdoors. Kung Fu Panda 2 follows later in October.
"Kung Fu Panda" features Jack Black as Po the Panda, a lowly waiter in a noodle restaurant, who is a kung fu fanatic but whose shape doesn't exactly lend itself to kung fu fighting. In fact, Po's defining characteristic appears to be that he is the laziest of all the animals in ancient China. That's a problem because powerful enemies are at the gates, and all hopes have been pinned on a prophesy naming Po as the "Chosen One" to save the day. A group of martial arts masters are going to need a black belt in patience if they are going to turn this slacker panda into a kung fu fighter before it's too late.
The third film in any trilogy has the unenviable task of paying off the story-lines and themes introduced in the previous two films, as well as having to match or even improve upon the quality of its predecessors.
