You may recall the Kung Fu Panda 2 Movie Review I posted early last year where I said I was a fan of Kung Fu Panda. Well, did you know they had an animated show based on the character and that it’s coming to DVD on June 18th? It’s called Legends of Awesomeness and it features our favorite panda in some action-filled scenes.
Legends of Awesomeness
Here is a brief synopsis of the Legends of Awesomeness DVD:
As the chosen Dragon Warrior and sworn protector of the Valley of Peace, Po the panda is highly skilled, ever vigilant and hungry for justice…and dumplings. Together with the Furious Five—Tigress, Monkey, Mantis, Crane and Viper—Po must fend off fierce villains, including an evil version of himself (courtesy of the Mystical Mirror of Yin and Yang) and the toothy Croc Bandits!
To get you in the mood to watch Legends of Awesomeness, I wanted to share some Life Lesson from Po. Check them out!
- Work Together. In the episode “Chain Reaction,” Po and Tigress are forced to embark on a mission together, despite Tigress being annoyed by Po. As luck would have it, they’re attacked by Croc Bandits and wind up handcuffed together. In order to stay safe and eventually escape, Po and Tigress put their differences aside and learn to work together to evade the Croc Bandits!
- Don’t Be Boastful! In “Po Fans Out,” Po’s ego gets the best of him and he releases a supernatural creature so that he can vanquish it and look good in front of his fan club. Unfortunately, Po’s scheme doesn’t quite go to plan. By trying to be boastful, Po puts himself and others in unneeded danger, something not even the Dragon Warrior should do!
- Listen to Your Elders. In an episode fittingly titled “Bad Po,” Shifu tells Po not to touch some ancient artifacts, but Po’s curiosity gets the best of him and he gazes into the Mystical Mirror of Yin and Yang. This ends up splitting Po into “good” and “bad” versions of himself! Because Po didn’t listen to Shifu, his “bad” ego goes on a crime spree, and “good” Po has to listen to Shifu and the Furious Five to restore himself.
- Stand Up For Your Friends. In the episode, “The Princess and the Po,” Po is put in charge of protecting Princess Mei Li on a journey the Qidan Clan. Despite a rough start, Po and Mei Li eventually become friends. However, when they arrive to the Qidan Clan, they learn that Mei Li is to be sacrificed. Po and the Furious Five then defend her and are ultimately victorious in saving the Princess!
