DreamWorks Animation has released some photos and posters from their upcoming sequel, Kung Fu Panda 2. The film is just one of the tentpole projects that will make its debut this summer, so the studio is really revving up the marketing for it (view the first teaser poster). Check out Po, and his pals below…

Are we the only ones who get weirded out by Po’s super-flexibility? Why can he kick so high with that much weight on his frame? We’re excited to see the return of all the zany cast of characters and we can’t wait to watch what trouble they get into next.

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.

Kung Fu Panda 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 27, 2011 and it will be in 3D.
