Kung Fu Panda is back with a new Netflix series called Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight.
Returning to voice the role of Po is actor Jack Black.
The animated franchise has grossed over $1.8 billion US worldwide since the release of the first Kung Fu Panda film in 2008.
It now boasts three feature films, as well as numerous TV series, specials and short films.
Black spoke with CBC Kids News contributor Arjun Ram for a Vibe Check ahead of the show’s release on July 14.

“I always feel like whatever the situation is, I’m going to be OK, because I know the technique,” said Black.
