After finding his real father, Po and Li-Shan then embark on a journey to an out of sight panda paradise where audiences are introduced to a whole new cast of hilarious panda characters.
In Kung Fu Panda 3, audiences are also introduced to Kai, a supernatural evil bull with the chi of every kungfu master in the spirit realm.
