Kung Fu Panda

Po the panda (Jack Black) is a humble noodle restaurant waiter who is a kung fu fanatic, but his own body is not exactly the prototype of a kung fu fighter. In fact, Po’s most distinctive characteristic is being the laziest animal in the animal kingdom of ancient China. This becomes a problem because strong enemies are attacking Po’s peaceful home valley, and all hope rests on a prophecy; a prophecy that says he is the “chosen” savior. A group of martial arts masters will need a black belt in patience if they are to turn the slacker panda into a kung fu fighter before it is too late.

Through us, license to the movie Kung Fu Panda 2 is also available.
