The peacock Shem was heir to the throne in China. But he was not satisfied with simply ruling. He wanted more power. After he turned to the dark side, the Soothsayer revealed a prophecy to his parents—a prophecy which predicted that a panda would destroy Shem. Since then, Shem has spent his entire life ensuring that that won’t happen.
The Weapon to Destroy Kung Fu
Po and his friends receive word that Shem has created a weapon to destroy kung fu. And somehow, some way, they must use the art of kung fu to destroy this weapon, if that’s even possible. It won’t be easy. In order to succeed, Po must find inner peace, a task that has taken Shifu decades to achieve.
One thing is stopping Po from finding inner peace—he’s remembering glimpses of his childhood, flashbacks that make him question who he really is. Po realizes that Mr. Ping, a goose, is not his real father. Somehow Po must learn what happened to his real parents, and why he ended up in a crate of radishes on Mr. Ping’s doorstep.
