About Kung Fu Panda 4

 After three death-defying adventures defeating world-class villains with his unmatched courage and mad martial arts skills, Po, the Dragon Warrior (Golden Globe nominee Jack Black), is called upon by destiny to… give it a rest already. More specifically, he’s tapped to become the Spiritual Leader of the Valley of Peace.

That poses a couple of obvious problems. First, Po knows as much about spiritual leadership as he does about the paleo diet, and second, he needs to quickly find and train a new Dragon Warrior before he can assume his new lofty position.

Even worse, there’s been a recent sighting of a wicked, powerful sorceress, Chameleon (Oscar® winner Viola Davis), a tiny lizard who can shapeshift into any creature, large or small. And Chameleon has her greedy, beady little eyes on Po’s Staff of Wisdom, which would give her the power to re-summon all the master villains whom Po has vanquished to the spirit realm.

So, Po’s going to need some help. He finds it (kinda?) in the form of crafty, quick-witted thief Zhen (Golden Globe winner Awkwafina), a corsac fox who really gets under Po’s fur but whose skills will prove invaluable. In their quest to protect the Valley of Peace from Chameleon’s reptilian claws, this comedic odd-couple duo will have to work together. In the process, Po will discover that heroes can be found in the most unexpected places.

Age Rating of Kung Fu Panda 4: Is It Safe For Teens When It Comes To Sex, Romance, and Nudity?

 There’s no romance or sex in Kung Fu Panda 4, and a barely-there “nudity” scene.

A panda loses his pants and uses something to cover up his front area. The scene is super quick, and you definitely don’t see anything other than a panda asking for his pants back.

Does that count as nudity? Eh… but some families may want to know about it in advance so there you go.

Violence and Gore: Is Kung Fu Panda 4 Too Scary For Kids Under 9?

The violence is on par with previous Kung Fu Panda movies.

Martial arts moves and characters battling it out in multiple scenes.

There is no gore or blood in this one.

The villain is menacing but not too scary for kids.

Is Kung Fu Panda 4 Ok For Kids: Mature Topics

Po is from a mixed family of 2 dads, which is mentioned frequently.

A tavern is used in a couple of scenes showing alcoholic drinking and gambling.

Your kids will also hear potty humor, especially using the word butts a lot.

There’s a fart scene that we could have done without, but we’re not the target audience. Animals take cheap shots and bite nipples during fight scenes.

Kids will find the humor appropriately funny-gross, which hits the mark.

This movie focuses a bit on spirituality and casting spells as the villain brings characters back from the spirit world. It’s a decent portion of the 3rd act, so this may be a movie best screened without the kids if it’s a concern.
