I actually love the second one even more. It takes all the aspects of what made the first one great and takes it to the next level. It doesn't feel like they rehashed the story from its predecessor like what most sequels do. We see Po already evolved into a strong and admirable warrior. I believe that there is a very strong connection between him, Shifu, and The Furious Five as they have grown a lot of respect for him. I love the backstory with the villain. It's so interesting and it makes you understand his motivations. I feel like there's a lot more to this villain than the one from the first film. Maybe it's because his backstory connects with Po's backstory and it made him a very compelling character. Plus, he's voiced by Gary Oldman. How awesome is that? Like the first one, it is very funny. It's humor both children and adults can enjoy. The action is a lot of fun and very well animated. They balance the comedy and action with quite a bit of drama. I was pretty surprised by how seriously the film can take itself. You get into the relationship of Po and his adoptive father, the friendship between him and Tigress, and the backstory of Po and his family. These scenes get pretty emotional actually. The dramatic aspect is what makes me really love this movie. KUNG FU PANDA 2 is probably among of my top five favorites from DreamWorks Animation. Maybe even top three!
