UPDATE: We have just been provided with two stills from Kung Fu Panda! Click here to check ’em out!
In the film Jack Black voices Po the Panda, the laziest of all the animals in the Valley of Peace. With powerful enemies at the gates, all hope has been pinned on an ancient prophesy that a hero will rise to save the day. But among all the martial arts masters who come forward, none has shown the mark of The Chosen One … until now. When Po unwittingly shows up in the midst of the competition, the masters are shocked to see that this unmotivated panda bears the mark. Now it is up to them to turn this gentle giant into a kung fu fighter before it’s too late.
Jolie will voice Tigress, one of the “furious five” martial-arts masters who helps train Po to become Kung Fu Panda.
