Editorial Reviews

The story continues! Skadoosh!! It's the world premiere of Po's all-new adventure from the filmmakers that brought you Kung Fu Panda! He may have defeated Tai Lung, but our Dragon Warrior (Jack Black) must now face Shifu's (Dustin Hoffman) biggest challenge with the help of Viper, Tigress, Monkey, Crane and Mantis. The secrets of the Furious Five are finally revealed as we discover it takes a lot more than fast feet and fists to become a master of kung fu.

A family fun DVD for the fans of "KUNG FU PANDA" comes "SECRETS OF THE FURIOUS FIVE", a DVD that features a new animated short film and various special features that will teach your children to draw a major character from the film, teach you how to do the Panda dance and feature games, learning various Kung Fu moves and more!

For the 24-minute animated short, Shifu (Dustin Hoffman) has "Kung Fu Panda" hero Po (Jack Black) train a group of youngsters about Kung Fu. A lot of the kids just are antsy and want to fight immediately and some who lack confidence. Of course, teaching these youngsters is not going to be easy but Po's up to the task.

What better way to train the children but by Po telling the children the history of each of the Furious Five and how at the beginning, they had their issues before becoming the heroes that they are now.

Mantis's storyline is how he was always thinking ahead and thus, he wasn't focusing on what he was being told and this got him into a few troubles but how he managed to overcome his personal obstacle.

Viper's storyline is about how she was born without any fangs or venom and her father felt bad because he would have to continue to protect the family and for Viper, she can excel in her dancing. But one day, an enemy has found a way to prevent from Viper's father from using his fangs and thus leaving Viper to defend her father using her techniques.

Tigress's storyline was about a tiger who lived in an orphanage, many parents didn't want to adopt her because she was too strong and had a temper. But how Shifu used patience and trained Tigress to become a warrior.

Monkey's storyline is how he was hurt in the past and thus started out hurting others with his mischief.

4.0 out of 5 stars My kids love it, but its short for the money! February 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
i was able to get this with free super saver shipping from a third party so i paid a 1/3 of what amazon is asking, therefore i feel it was a fair price, but i would probably would have felt a little disappointed had i of paid full price. the movie is super cute and it tells you how each of the furious five(snake, mantis, tigeress, monkey, crane) all became the super heroes they are through the storytelling of panda. panda is in charge of teaching a new generations of kids(bunnies) the art of kung fu and he starts by telling them how their heroes became masters of kung fu. the movie is only 24 minutes which is think isnt long enough to be asking almost the full price of a normal dvd. if you can get this at a discount i would say go for it if your kids love it. mine do and theyve watched this over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars My kids love this April 11, 2009
My kids love this DVD, more than the actual Kung Fu Panda DVD. I think they relate more to the characters, especially Tigress who is presented as a child who needs to learn to control her temper. Then of course there's the narrative frame of Po teaching children their first kung fu class. What can I say? Kids like to see other kids. It also helps that there are 5 short stories told, so they don't have to stay involved in the long story arc of a feature length film.

From a parent's perspective, there's still a bunch of fighting and violence depicted in this movie, but the point of the stories is to learn a virtue, not to be a great fighter (although, naturally, in the movie it is the virtue itself that propels the character into becoming a great fighter - nothing's perfect LOL).

We bought Kung Fu Panda as a single disc - now it is often bundled with The Secrets of the Furious Five. I was happy to see Secrets as a single to buy because I didn't want to re-buy KFP just to get it. This DVD is a keeper, so far. My kid is watching it and playing with her stuffed Po and Tigress toys right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Kung Fu Panda Fans January 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
My kids (5 and 7) were into Kung Fu Panda so this was something they really wanted. They both love it and it is one of the DVDs we keep in our car. It is short so it is great for shorter trips when you don't want to throw a full length movie on. It is a must for Kung Fu Panda fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Secrets of the Furious Five June 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
You saw the 1st one (Kung Fu Panda), you probably watched the 2nd one too! Well what are you waiting for? Get this along with "The Secrets of the Masters" and "Kung Fu Panda Holiday" to complete your collection. Jack Black and ALL of the other actors made a BIG hit movie franchise, perfect, perfect, perfect I tell ya.

I'm a mom of an 8 and 4 year old who think they are Ninja everytime this is on. It has a great story line as did Kung Fu Panda and the boys love it. I love it. There's laughter, excitement, togetherness, all sorts of wonderful traits to this movie but most of all it ROCKS. You'll love it too if you like the Panda movies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Secrets of the Furious Five August 22, 2011

This item is not worth the money charged for it. For the length of the video, it should have been added as a special feature to the original Kung Fu Panda dvd.

This is a great little video for children who need to remember to practice the "secrets". My grandson loves it and only needs a gentle reminder to "practice the secrets of the furious five". Highly recommended!

This is an animated short on sale at regular dvd prices, beware! I thought this was a feature-length spin-off of kung fu panda but it's only 20 minutes long.
