DreamWorks Animation and Insight Editions presents The Art of Kung Fu Panda 2; the book that takes readers in the back of-the-scenes of the animated martial arts mega-sequel. As the recently anointed Dragon Warrior, Po the Panda (Jack Black) is living his dream as the champion of the Valley of Peace. But Po’s serenity is disrupted when the malevolent Lord Shen (Gary Oldman), an epically evil warlord, threatens to destroy all of China by creating an unstoppable weapon that promises to supplant kung fu. With each conquest, Shen’s ambition, cruelty, and lust for power grow, forcing Po and The Furious Five to confront their most powerful enemy ever, or else witness the destruction of their place of birth and the tradition of kung fu. Included in this tome of production artwork are designs for Baby Po, Po’s parents, the sharp-taloned peacock Shen, the warlord’s fearsome wolf mercenaries, in addition to Po’s new allies—Master Croc (Jean-Claude Van Dam), Master Skunkman (James Woods), and Master Thundering Rhino (Victor Garber). Also included are the epic environments Po, Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey, will have to venture through on their epic quest to confront the evil Lord Shen and save kung fu. With new friends, Po’s strength has never been greater. But how can he stop a weapon that may stop kung fu? Po will have to look deep into his past and uncover the secrets of his mysterious origins; only then will he be capable to unlock the strength he needs to succeed.
