Master Monkey Returns in ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’

Next Previous

In the Kung Fu Panda franchise, Monkey—voiced by Jackie Chan—is a former victim of bullying, who became the laughingstock of his village for slipping on banana peels and losing his pants. Of course, this leads to Monkey making a habit of pantsing and teasing others, including the films’ star, oafish panda Po. But Monkey soon becomes a trusted friend to Po and the two plush creatures battled foes side by side in Kung Fu Panda 2, usually with pants on. With the rest of the Furious Five, the movie has managed to earn nearly $162 million domestically since its May release.
