With Kung Fu Panda 2 opening this weekend, I recently got to interview director Jennifer Yuh for our partners at Omelete. While some sequels spend a lot of time reminding the audience who the characters are, one of the many things that’s great about Kung Fu Panda 2 is that it starts like you know the world and the people and it never slows down. In addition, while I’ve been very vocal about bad 3D, Kung Fu Panda 2 features some incredible 3D shots and the best part is that the filmmakers have used 3D to help tell the story. If you have the option, you really want to see this in 3D.
During my interview with Yuh, we talked about if the script and story changed as they were making the film, the great use of 3D, how the story is darker than I expected, did the fact that they’re going to make a 3rd Kung Fu Panda cause them to adjust the story, and a lot more. Hit the jump to check it out.
