Kung Fu Panda 2 has received highly positive reviews,
with many critics praising its animation, voice acting,
and character development. It was also a commercial
success surpassing the original film and, like the original film,
is the highest grossing animated feature film of the year.
It is the highest-grossing film directed by a woman.
The film was nominated for the 2011 Academy Award for Best
Animated Feature at the 84th Academy Awards.
Years before the events of the first film, Lord Shen (Gary Oldman),
the son of the peacock clan that ruled Gongmen City in ancient China,
sought to harness fireworks as a weapon with which to rule the country.
After discovering from the court's goat soothsayer (Michelle Yeoh)
that "a warrior of black-and-white" would defeat him,
Shen correctly assumed she was referring to a panda,
and led an army to enact a genocide against the panda population
to avert the prophecy. Shen's parents, horrified at this atrocity,
exiled a vengeful Shen from the city.
