Jack Black will once again lend his voice to Po the panda, nearly six years after Kung Fu Panda 3, for Netflix’s Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight.
On Wednesday, Netflix revealed it will further expand the Kung Fu Panda world with the animated series from DreamWorks Animation. When a mysterious pair of weasels set their sights on a collection of four powerful weapons, Po (Black) must leave his home to embark on a globe-trotting quest for redemption and justice that finds him partnered up with a no-nonsense English knight named Wandering Blade. Together, these two mismatched warriors set out on an epic adventure to find the magical weapons first and save the world from destruction — and they may even learn a thing or two from each other along the way.
Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight hails from executive producers Peter Hastings and Shaunt Nigoghossian. Co-executive producers are Chris Amick and Ben Mekler.
Black, who recent credits include Jumanji: The Next Level and Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Adventure, first voiced Po for the original Kung Fu Panda film in 2008. He then reprised the role for Kung Fu Panda 2 in 2011 and Kung Fu Panda 3 in 2016. The Netflix series marks the third animated film from the Kung Fu Panda franchise, following Nickelodeon’s Legends of Awesomeness and Prime Video’s The Paws of Destiny.
