Kung Fu Panda was an unexpected delight in summer 2008. It was smart. It had style. It featured Ian McShane as an evil snow leopard, and everyone knows that the only thing cooler than Ian McShane is an evil snow leopard. Now, your friends at DreamWorks are hoping you liked KFP1 so much that you’ll be back for more, more, more! Don’t get too excited for the new Kung Fu Panda 2 teaser, though — it’s just a couple of fat jokes, followed by a sustained staring contest joke that actually becomes funnier the longer it lasts (following the Sideshow Bob Rake Gag rule of comedy.) Check it out!
