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.Read more ›
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.
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!!
