Plot: Kung Fu Panda starts out with Po having a dream about being a heroic kung fu fighter. Po the panda is the biggest fan of kung fu on the planet even though he is a lazy slacker who enjoys eating more than anything else. His father has dreams of Po one day taking over the family's noodle shop, but Po wants to be a Kung Fu Master.
He refrains from letting his father know this to avoid hurting his father's feelings. When Oogway (Master of Masters) foretells of Tai Lung, a villainous snow leopard escaping from prison, he consults Master Shifu that the Dragon Warrior must be chosen to stop Tai Lung. News of selecting the Dragon Warrior is sent out from the Jade Temple, and the whole city along with Po, go to the celebration. The competition is between the Furious Five: Tigress, Viper, Crane, Monkey, and Mantis. Po accidentally enters the contest and is named the Dragon Warrior. Master Shifu must find a way to train Po and make him a Kung Fu Master. He realizes that it is almost impossible but finally finds a strategy that just might work to train Po. Po ultimately becomes a Kung Fu hero by learning that if he believes in himself, he can do anything.
Review: Kung Fu Panda was honestly a great movie that any adult can get into. Kids will also of course love this film. The movie has a good educational tool for children as well. Throughout the movie, the Dragon Warrior has a destiny to be the one who opens up the sacred Dragon Scroll, which promises great power to the possessor. When Po opens it, he finds nothing but a blank reflective surface. Stricken with despair at the scroll's apparent worthlessness, Shifu orders his students to lead the villagers to safety while he stays to delay Tai Lung for as long as he can. As Po participates in the evacuation, he meets his father, who tries to cheer him up by telling him the secret ingredient of the family's noodle soup: nothing his father says. Things become special, he explains, because people believe them to be special. Po now seen what the Dragon Scroll really meant. If you believe in yourself you can do anything you want to do. That turns Po into the unlikely hero in the movie.
