Rumors Suggest that 'Kung-Fu Panda 5' and a Standalone 'Furious Five' Movie Are in Development!

Kung-Fu Panda 4 is still playing in cinemas and the most recent installment in the successful animated franchise is a global hit. And while the story is moving in another direction, with new characters being introduced as the old ones are slowly “retreating”, especially the Furious Five, into the background, it seems that the franchise is far from being over, as recent rumors suggest that two movies are in the works, one of which is supposedly going to focus on one of the old(er) groups from the series.

These reports have not been confirmed as of the time of writing, but there is a rumored timeline as well, and we have decided to report these rumors to make the fans of the series happier, as this news is certainly going to bring a smile on the faces of the fans of the series.

So, what do we know? We know that Kung-Fu Panda 4 ended with Po winning again, but the idea of Po taking Master Shifu’s place while being replaced by another character has been heavily hinted at. On top of that, the Furious Five only had a voiceless cameo in the most recent movie, which was great, but it suggested a shift in the franchise’s narrative.

We don’t think that fans have had enough of Po and the Furious Five, and based on the rumors, the executives are in agreement with us, as it has been confirmed that this is not Po’s last adventure. Having said this, Kung-Fu Panda 5 is supposedly already in the works, with animation slated to begin sometime in 2025, with a supposed 2028 release date. Again, we repeat, these are just rumors and we have not received an official confirmation of this timeline, but it is in line with the original reports that the Kung-Fu Panda series is planned to have six “chapters” in total.

But, it’s not just the fifth installment in the main narrative that we are reporting about, because – supposedly – a standalone Furious Five movie is also in development, which would focus on the titular five supporting characters from the franchise. This movie is supposedly set to be released sometime in 2027.

This is all that we know at this point and while these rumors give us a lot of hope, they are still just rumors until we get an official confirmation, we are going to restrict our enthusiasm just now, but be sure to keep following us for more updates, because as soon as new information appears, we are going to bring all of them to you, so you will know the official status of all the upcoming projects as soon as possible.
