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.

Format: DVD
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.

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.

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.

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.

Ever wondered about the backgrounds of the Furious Five and how they became Kung Fu masters? Well wonder no more. To teach a class of young rabbits that Kung Fu isn't just about fighting, Po tells them the backgrounds of each of the Furious Five; each story emphasizing one aspect of Kung Fu other than fighting. Each of them came from a different background and was led into Kung Fu for different reasons. Recommended for fans who want to know more about their favorate characters.

I was slightly disappointing because I was expecting it to be one episode for EACH of the furious five not all crammed into one! >.< I feel like they could have taken the story a little more in depth, especially if they have made it into several episodes. I especially thought monkey's story was lacking and neglected, especially in comparison to Viper and Tigress' stories... and the animation was not as up to par as the movie but that's not really that big of a deal.

On the other hand it was adorable! It was great to know the backgrounds of the furious five and I especially loved Tigress' story and it actually can help make some connections in King Fu Panda 2! Very cute, great for kids and kung fu panda fans a like!!
