Kung Fu Panda 3: Alessandro Carloni and Jennifer Yuh Nelson’s entry to the franchise is very consistent with the previous films, for better or for worse. By one hand, the story seems more a rehash of the previous films than a new story (or continuation); the characters, for the most part, are dull, there just to be voiced by a famous voice (the cast is gigantic); the themes, very shallowly developed. By the other hand, the animation is gorgeous, colorful and detailed; the characters, smartly made distinguishable despite their obvious common characteristics; the environment is pretty well-done. The aforementioned voice cast is mostly wasted, as there’s so little space for them all; not surprisingly, only newcomers J.K. Simmons and Bryan Cranston manage to leave an impression.
