Today marks the tenth anniversary of Kung Fu Panda. The film follows a clumsy Giant Panda named Po who gets a chance to fulfill his dream as a martial arts master but must contend with a teacher who doesn't want him around as well as a dangerous criminal bent on destruction.
The film was a massive success with fans and critics. It was the highest grossing animated feature of the year and became DreamWorks's highest grossing animated feature at that point. It was lauded in China, where the film is set, who felt it was incredibly respectful of their culture. It won numerous awards and nominated for many more. It was followed by two more equally successful movies, an animated series, and several shorts.
