Fans of DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda and Madagascar franchises will be happy to learn that new features from both are now confirmed to be on the way.
During their panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the studio’s CCO, Bill Damaschke, confirmed that Kung Fu Panda 3 was indeed on the way, though it wasn’t announced when we might see the trilogy-maker. The 2008 original made $631.7 million worldwide, while its sequel, Kung Fu Panda 2, made $665.6 million, making the decision to roll again quite easy.
In regards to their other big franchise, Madagascar, Tom McGrath, the director of Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, also had an announcement to make. He revealed that a spinoff starring the beloved penguins of the franchise titled The Penguins of Madagascar would be coming in 2015. This will be the first feature focusing on the penguins, though they have had their own Nickelodeon series and some shorts.
