'Kung Fu Panda' (2008) is one of DreamWorks' most recognized movie franchises.

It concerns the tale of an unlikely Kung Fu action hero, a panda called Po, finding his stride. Although it is most known for the movie trilogy, there are also two TV series that follow the adventures of Po.

'Kung Fu Panda' was originally supposed to be a goofy spoof film poking at the cliches of the martial arts genre, but it evolved into a genuinely fulfilling story of finding oneself. Naturally, a film so deeply concerned with a misfit trying to follow his heart is full of quotable inspirational dialogue. The furious five along with Po have now become some of the most loved characters in films. You could also take a look at 'Kung Fu Panda' inspirational quotes, 'Kung Fu Panda' Oogway quotes, Po 'Kung Fu Panda' quotes and 'Kung Fu Panda' motivational quotes.
