Full Cast & Crew
At the finale of the film, Crane uses his "Wings of Justice! Done by the Wolf Boss with a box of brand-new bouncing baby bunnies. Po geeks out over being restrained by the same type of acupuncture cuffs used to imprison Tai Lung this also serves as foreshadowing, as Viper is able to pick the cuffs just like Tai Lung did. Baby Po wears the wok on his head as adult Po did at the end of the first film.
Po does this several times, as well as some of the Furious Five like Crane. Though quite a few times it's relaying instructions to the rest of the Furious Five for a double team attack with him such as a "Double Death Strike" with Tigressso it's justified.
Tai Lung, the villain of the first film, appears for a split-second during the flashback of Po's life up to the events of this film.
Everyone knew Po was adopted; even Po himself. Po and the Five have no problem busting into the jail where Masters Storming Ox and Croc are being kept. In fact, they actually have more trouble convincing Ox and Croc to escape as they've been demoralized by Lord Shen's cannon and are convinced that Resistance Is Futile.
Cue a hilarious scene where the various kung fu Masters keep kicking down the barred iron door or putting it back up again while they argue. And even when the cell door is destroyed during the struggle, Ox and Croc simply walk into the opposite cell and lock themselves in there. At the climax, Ox and Croc appear at the battle to stop Shen, revealing that Shifu talked some sense into them. Like I said, you are NOT getting me out of this cell! I get the top bunk.
It's time to surrender, panda. Kung fu is dead! You stay in your prison of fear, with bars made of hopelessness With despair for dessert. We'll take on Shen, and prove to all those who are hungry for justice and honor that kung fu still lives! One of the wolves explicitly says to a rabbit: Shifu practices catching rain drops and placing them on blades of grass without breaking them. Po uses this to defeat Lord Shen's cannon ships, by redirecting their cannon fire back to the source.
Double duty as Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: You know when Po says "Skadoosh! Gone now for Tigress, who has become Po's best friend of the Five. Although the one scene where she's ordering Po to stay in the dungeon is pretty scary even more so that Viper tells Po to "stay down" after he is knocked around for a bitshe isn't doing it to be mean; she clearly states at the end that she was fearing for his safety. Po chasing Wolf Boss across Gongmen City on rickshaws!
Po wins the running battle, only to find that Wolf Boss isn't just running from him, he's running to the palace, guarded by an entire army of wolf soldiers. Po's wooden action figures of the Furious Five, particularly Mantis's. This goes all the way back to the first movie, where Po comments that Mantis is about the same size as his action figure. In this movie, he swaps Mantis for his figure while they're all being locked in chains so he can help save them later.
One that goes back to the first movie: Po's recurring use of a wok as a hat, leading to the Disc of Destruction scene. Master Shifu's water-catching technique in the beginning of the movie; during the climax, Po uses it to catch cannonballs.
This is used brilliantly to show Po's Progression from a gibbering fanboy from the last movie to the kung-fu master he is now. The clip show lasts just under 10 seconds, with a very dramatic musical score to it, and total silence from the clips themselves. It also symbolizes how he has come to terms with his tragic childhood and found inner peace, along with it ending with a shot of Mr.
Ping, whom he truly realizes is, after all, as real a father as anyone could have. This is especially apparent in Po's last confrontation with Shen, with Po standing in golden sunlight and Shen standing in the red glow of a cannon.
A golden aura can also be seen around Po's mother when she makes her Heroic Sacrifice for him. Here's an example towards the end that might've gone by too fast for a few people: The cannonballs that Shen fires are red. The cannonballs that Po catches turn gold.
In a world where strength is determined by kung fu prowess, Shen has no problem with using cannons and hidden weapons. While Po is not a slouch in the kung-fu asskicking department in this movie, all his best moves are performed in tandem with the rest of the Furious Five.
Most of them are some variety of tossing him in the right direction and watching the fireworks. Master Mantis says he never had Daddy issues because his mother bit his father's head off. He also claims to be looking forward to the day he has a similar demise. A kid playing with a Po figurine in the opening scenes says "Enough talk. There's also several in the opening fight in with the wolves.
Many shots and elements of the whole scene match up with the 2D opening dream sequence of the first movie, including Po's "Feet of Fury" technique. The Soothsayer uses acupuncture needles to cure Po and mess with his facial expressions in the same way Mantis unintentionally does in the first film. It's the only way she can get him to take his medicine.
Shen tried to change his fate by destroying the pandas, which only sealed it. It reminds one of Oogway's words in the first movie: This was the lesson Oogway tried to teach Po in the first film so that Po would not try to flee his destiny as the Dragon Warrior.
Also Mantis being as big as his action figure, which becomes a Chekhov's Gun. Oogway's wooden staff, broken by Tai Lung in the first film, has now been repaired and is used by Master Shifu in this film.

The archway above Mr. Ping's noodle shop has been similarly repaired. Ping's dream of making tofu. He fought like a demon!
Big and furry, soft and squishy There are no more pandas. Even with his poor eyesight, he can see the truth. Why is it that you cannot? That does not make you right!
Being right makes me right. Then I will kill him, and make you wrong! Is that all you got? Well, this cloud is about to bring the thunder! Call in the wolves! I want them ready to move! The Year of the Peacock begins now! Happy New Year, sir. Get the wolves ready.
We're loading the ships now. Your magic panda is clearly a fool! You just destroyed your ancestral home, Shen! Then will you finally be satisfied? Will the subjugation of the whole world finally make you feel better? I might also convert the basement into a dungeon. The cup you choose to fill has no bottom.
It is time to stop this madness. So your parents can rest in peace. They-- they wronged me. I will make it right. They loved you so much that having to send you away killed them. And I must attend to the future. She is of no use to me. I wish you happiness.
And I will take mine.

Oh, you want to know so badly? You think knowing will heal you, eh? Well, here's your answer: Po raises a wok as a flimsy shield, and the cannon blasts him back and out of the factory] Tigress: Your story may not have such a happy beginning, but that doesn't make you who you are.
It is the rest of your story, who you choose to be. So, who are you, panda? Prepare yourself for a hot serving of— [Cut back to Shen] Po: Your reign of terror comes to an end! Why aren't we firing?! They're taking out our gunners, sir!
But, sir, we'll kill our own! How did you find peace? I took away your parents, everything! I-I-- I scarred you for life! See, that's the thing, Shen. What do scars do? They fade, I guess? I don't care what scars do. You gotta let go of that stuff from the past, 'cause it just doesn't matter! The only thing that matters is what you choose to be now. Everyone watches worriedly; Po emerges] Po: The film isn't from Pixar, and was supposed to go straight to DVD, but is seen as a "Cars" spinoff and should pull in the family movie dollars.
The PG-rated film is not for the littlest kids, and includes Smurfied swear words such as "Son of a Smurf! Like the first film, it's rated G, but there are numerous scary scenes.
Still, the monsters' very job is to scare kids, so those who've seen the first film won't be too frightened.
The plots are complex, but Gru, his girls, and the minions keep things light. Numerous battle scenes and one sad death give this film its PG rating. While the original film is rated G, this one is PG, and for good reason. The flying monkeys are scarier, the witch has a creepy transformation, and beloved Glinda the Good is tortured. Not for the littlest or most sensitive kids, no matter how much they love the first film.
Reilly who longs to be a hero. He stumbles into a candy-themed game and teams up with a little girl voice of Sarah Silverman who makes him feel like a true hero in the end. Delightful for kids, and divine for parents who will remember their own Pac-Man and Burger Time arcade days.

This Pixar film isn't up there with their top offerings, and some scenes involving a bear can be scary for the littlest moviegoers.
