The Dragon Warrior’s New Challenge: Spiritual Leadership

In Kung Fu Panda 4, Po faces an unexpected twist in his journey. After his heroic exploits in previous films, destiny calls him to become the Spiritual Leader of the Valley of Peace. However, Po’s knowledge of spiritual matters is as limited as his understanding of the paleo diet, presenting a humorous predicament for the Dragon Warrior.

The tranquility of the Valley of Peace is threatened by the emergence of Chameleon, a shapeshifting sorceress voiced by Oscar® winner Viola Davis. Her sinister plan involves using Po’s Staff of Wisdom to resurrect the master villains Po has previously defeated, posing a grave danger to the valley.

The Rise of a New Villain & An Unlikely Alliance

To combat this new threat, Po teams up with Zhen, a crafty and quick-witted corsac fox voiced by Golden Globe winner Awkwafina. Their unlikely partnership forms the core of the film’s humor and action, as they work together to thwart Chameleon’s plans.


The film features an impressive voice cast, including returning stars like Dustin Hoffman as Shifu, James Hong as Mr. Ping, Bryan Cranston as Po’s birth father Li, and Ian McShane as Tai Lung. New to the franchise is Oscar® winner Ke Huy Quan, who voices Han, the leader of the Den of Thieves.

Professional Nerd | Amateur Human | Creative/Content Director The best way to describe Kevin Fenix is the kid you never tell what the buttons do in video games so you have a chance to win. Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video.
