Yes you heard me right. It seems that those clever over at have anticipated the success of the Highly entertaining Kung Fu by releasing a accompanying DVD at the same time KFP is released. The new movie is named: Secrets of the Furious Five and will reportedly have (as Po) and (as Shifu) reprising their . Apparently Secrets of the Furious Five will be available as a Pandamonium box set (including the original film).

It could be argued that this movie is in fact a spin-off instead of a standalone movie. However, the seems to infer differently: “The Kung Fu Panda story continues“. Only time will tell, but if Secrets of the Furious Five is half as entertaining as Kung Fu Panda, I for one am enthusiastic about the release. Let’s hope they haven’t just bashed out a substandard story just to earn a few extra bucks.
