Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Kung Fu Panda
Jackie Chan. Monkey was one of the Furious Five. Jackie Chan is a famous Hong Kong actor, specializing in action movies. He is well known because he tends to do all of the dangerous stunts in his films himself, except for one instance in "The Tuxedo" (2002) where he was forced to use a stunt man for a scene since Jackie was badly injured at the time. The production must go on.
A dumpling. Master Shifu recognized Po's innate ability for Kung Fu in each of Po's efforts to acquire food and snacks. Later on, Master Shifu used food and snacks to train Po.
At the end of his training, Po amazingly rejected the dumpling he earned, which signalled to Master Shifu that Po had become a full-fledged Kung Fu warrior indeed.
|Using this somewhat vague skill, Po finally put an end to Tai Lung. What was the name of the "uber" skill?||"Kung Fu Panda" Knowledge
Wuxi finger hold. It wasn't explained what actually happened when Po bent his pinky - only that a huge, golden-colored shock wave occurred at the same time. Then Tai Lung was out of the picture without further explanation as to what his ultimate fate was.
A stone tortoise shell with some jade sticks attached. Tai Lung was imprisoned in the Chor-Gom prison because of the destruction of the Valley of Peace 20 years ago, and his attempt to take the Dragon Scroll by force, in order to acquire the secrets of the scroll, and to use it for his own gain.
Although not described in the movie, the jade sticks attached to the stone shell were located precisely at Tai Lung's points of Chi (life energy), which meant to keep him from accessing power from it.
The chains which tied his hands to two huge boulders proved to not hold Tai Lung back at all, in fact, he quickly ripped it away as soon as he broke free from the tortoise shell.
Land turtle. The turtle master's name was a pun. It really meant what old Master Oogway was.
Master Oogway told Shifu about the incoming danger earlier in the movie, in which the evil Tai Lung would soon return to the Valley of Peace for revenge, which led to the Dragon Warrior Choosing Festival
Also the mentor of Master Shifu, Master Oogway was said to be the inventor of Kung Fu itself. There was a drawing of two fishes forming Yin and Yang on Oogway's carapace.
Master Shifu. The greatest Kung Fu master, Master Shifu, under the tutelage of Master Oogway, had taught many great warriors for years, including the evil Tai Lung. Shifu looked like a small rat with a long moustache, and wearing a red robe. According to DreamWorks Animation (the film's developer), he was actually a red panda.
Afterwards, the Furious Five attacked him. But the great Master Shifu managed to fend off their attacks, using only his flute.
Red. The gate of the Jade Palace had a small hole, big enough for Po to peek inside, which was strange considering that a gate like such was made to be sturdy and long-lasting. Not to mention the hole was also located near the handle of the gate, which made it easier to unlock.
Po did peek inside when he visited the Jade Palace during the great festival of Dragon Warrior choosing. Since he came late, he wasn't allowed to come inside the Palace. Po then tried to peek inside being the Kung Fu maniac he was.
|"Hey, careful! That soup is...sharp..."
What made Po say this to one of his noodle shop customers in the beginning of the movie?||"Kung Fu Panda" Knowledge
He accidentally put a shuriken in the bowl. Po woke up from his dream at the call of his father. Before he went down to the store, Po threw a shuriken (ninja throwing knife) at a target practice in his room (likely as a daily chore), but he missed a couple times. Po ended up carrying his missed shuriken from his room to the store.
|Po the Panda: "I was kind of thinking maybe I... could also sell the bean buns." What did he say next?||"Kung Fu Panda" Knowledge
"They're about to go bad.". Po said it when he was told to sell noodles at the festival, where the new Dragon Warrior would soon be chosen, earlier in the movie. Po's father's reply to Po was "I was kind of thinking maybe I..." was rather funny, establishing his role as the movie's most expressive character:
"Uh-huh?" (Both said with his high-pitched voice)
Atop a high mountain. The Jade Palace was the ultimate Dojo of Kung Fu, hosted by the greatest Kung Fu teacher, Master Shifu. Tigress, Monkey, Viper, Crane and Mantis were Shifu's students training with him on the dojo (although they were nothing like a newbie. They were the Furious Five, the five fiercest Kung Fu warriors in China). Po became the trainee inside Jade Palace as a result of Master Oogway's decision.
There was obviously no Jade Cave in the Valley of Peace, and of course, the Palace was nowhere near the main protagonist's house. It's really, really far, in fact. There was a lake, however, named The Lake of Sacred Tears. But it was pretty small, and the Jade Palace was not inside it.
|What must be done to cause damage during the Wuxi Finger Hold?||Kung Fu Panda
Flex your pinky. When the pinky flexes, the enemy is blown to pieces, to forever be destroyed. This is how Po finally defeats Tai Lung. As he does the Wuxi Finger Hold and flexes his pinky, he says "Skidoosh."
|What is the secret ingredient in Secret Ingredient Soup?||Kung Fu Panda
Nothing. Mr. Ping tells Po that there is no secret ingredient. It is only special because customers THINK it is special. This is what causes Po to realize what the Dragon Scroll means.
Nothing. Po is confused at first as to why there is nothing written on the scroll. It is completely blank! When he finally realizes what it means, he lets Tai Lung look at it, because he knows he will never figure it out. What it means is that you don't need anything to be a powerful Kung Fu Master. You are what makes you a master.
Po. Tigress is extremely mad at Po when he is first chosen to train as the Dragon Warrior. Eventually, however, she comes to realize he is the true Dragon Warrior and congratulates him for it. At first, though, she wants to prove she is worthy so she sneaks out to fight Tai Lung. The other four members of the Furious Five join her in her attempt to fight Tai Lung. Po is a panda bear that works at a noodle place with his father. He loves Kung Fu, and dreams of it often. He is late for the Dragon Warrior festival, so he falls from the sky using a rocket chair he made.
Fingers. When Po sits on Tai Lung's head, he says "Time to feel the thunder!" He says "Skidoosh!" when he uses does the Wuxi Finger Hold. He flexes his pinky and Tai Lung is destroyed. Po is voiced by Jack Black.
|What method does Master Shifu finally use to teach Po?||Kung Fu Panda
Food. Master Shifu finds Po in the kitchen doing Kung Fu to eat. He tells Po that there are cookies hidden on the top shelf, and leaves, but he doesn't leave completely. He quickly runs back to the room to see Po doing the splits at the very top of the room. Master Shifu then realizes he must use food to teach Po. Po will do anything for food.
|Who is the evil snow leopard that wants to be the Dragon Warrior?||Kung Fu Panda
Tai Lung. Tai Lung is an evil snow leopard that is trapped by Javan rhinos. The jail is extremely heavily guarded, and Tai Lung is the only prisoner; however, when Zeng, the messenger goose, comes to give news that Tai Lung will soon escape, something terrible happens. A feather from Zeng falls down onto a little button of Tai Lung, opening his confinements and freeing him. Tai Lung is voiced by Ian McShane.
Master Shifu. Master Shifu is a red panda. He is very short, and has big ears and a long mustache. He is voiced by Dustin Hoffman. He was the one who raised the main enemy of the movie. The movie was released in theaters on June 6th, 2008.
Mr. Ping. Mr. Ping is voiced by James Hong. He is a goose that sells noodles. The family has been selling noodles for centuries and he wants Po to someday take over the business. Zeng is voiced by Dan Fogler, and is a messenger goose.
