Comic-Con: Dreamworks Announces Third 'Kung Fu Panda' & Upcoming Animation Slate

DreamWorks announces at Comic-Con that a third “Kung Fu Panda” is in the works, which is not surprising given the Jack Black animated panda franchise has grossed more than $1.2 billion worldwide.

Chief creative officer Bill Damaschke also discussed the studio’s upcoming slate of animated projects, including Guillermo del Toro’s “Rise of the Guardians,” which features holiday mythical characters like Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny (a Thanksgiving release); caveman comedy “The Croods,” with the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone and Nicholas Cage (March release); “Penguins of Madagascar” (a spin-off of the “Madagascar” franchise, aimed for 2015); and fantasy comedy “Me and My Shadow,” with the voice of SNL comedian Bill Hader.
