Dreamworks Animation has two high profile sequels coming out this year, to very different reactions. KUNG FU PANDA 2 is a welcome sequel to the surprisingly lovable 2008 hit, KUNG FU PANDA, but the other is the fifth film in the SHREK franchise and seems so unnecessary.

Watch the trailers and learn more plot details for both after the break.

Watch the teaser trailer for PUSS IN BOOTS:

PUSS IN BOOTS will follow the title character and function more like a prequel, telling the origin story of Puss in Boots leading up to his meeting Shrek. This teaser doesn’t reveal much. It seems like a given that you’re interested in another SHREK film, then you’ll probably enjoy this, with its hip-hop soundtrack and adult-skewing children’s movie brand of humor. While plot details are limited, we do know that Humpty Dumpty (voiced by Zach Galifianakis) teams up with Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) to steal the goose that lays the golden eggs. Salma Hayak also lends her voice to film, for the role of Kitty Softpaws.

PUSS IN BOOTS will be released in theaters nationwide on November 4, 2011.


Coming out May 26, it’s almost time for Po to wow us with his awesome awesomeness. He’ll face a familiar foe, the stairs, and team up with the Furious Five to help save Kung Fu.

Official synopsis:

"Po is now living his dream as The Dragon Warrior, protecting the Valley of Peace alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, The Furious Five – Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey. But Po’s new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain, who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. It is up to Po and The Furious Five to journey across China to face this threat and vanquish it. But how can Po stop a weapon that can stop kung fu? He must look to his past and uncover the secrets of his mysterious origins; only then will he be able to unlock the strength he needs to succeed."
