Admittedly, Kate Hudson didn’t see all of her latest movie “Kung Fu Panda 3,” but the few “chunks” that she caught brought out the waterworks.
“I did kind of cry,” Hudson tells Made in Hollywood while sitting alongside costar Jack Black. “The whole adopted father and real father thing got me.”
Black adds: “It’s heavy—it hits you in different places.”
In the third sequel to the hit animated DreamWorks film, Black lends his voice again to affable panda Po, who has reunited with his father, voiced by Bryan Cranston. Together they travel to a secret panda sanctuary where he meets his bride-to-be, Mei Mei, voiced by Kate Hudson, who has been promised to him since birth. Meanwhile, Po has to train the village of clumsy pandas into kung fu masters, like himself, to thwart an evil spirt.
Featuring all-star cast lending their voices, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, J.K. Simmons, Lucy Lui, Jackie Chan and Seth Rogen, “Kung Fu Panda 3” opens Friday.
