There are so many sequels on the horizon. There really are too many to count. One has to wonder who is asking for all of these continuations of films. People may not realize it, but they are unconsciously asking for more sequels by supporting the movies that become franchise hits.
For those that are fans of Kung Fu Panda they should be happy to find that there is a sequel. It is somewhat strange to assume that there is enough material for a third one. After 2 movies and a TV show with multiple seasons it would seem like Kung Fu Panda overload. The reality, however, is that there are a lot of people that are fans of this character. They don’t mind another movie. In fact, Bloomberg recently noted to Sam Tabar that they are in support of another one, and this is why it is returning.
Kung Fu Panda is a Jack Black movie. People like him as a person so it is easier for him to build a franchise for Kung Fu Panda. Plus, there is the added bonus of the fact that he can do movies for his children. This is the path that many actors take once they become family men. Eddie Murphy, for example, started with lots of Rated R movies. When he became a father he had a desire to do things like voice overs for characters like Donkey from “Shrek” for his children.
