So I spotted the message board for Kung Fu Panda 3 on IMDB, and...: www.imdb.com/title/tt2267968/b…
"I think Rebel Wilson will be a female Panda - Just thinking of it, she might be Po's love interest."
... no. No. Just no. No no NOOOO!!!! Oh my god, what if they WILL have this cheap way of writing the third movie?! "Hey, now we introduce more pandas thanks to the cliffhanger the second movie ended with - let's give Po a love interest of the opposite gender, because he needs to have one! Herpy derp derp!"
... Po isn't supposed to get together with anyone. Not with a female panda, not with Tigress, not even with a male panda, not with ANYONE!!!
Damnit, Dreamworks... you are not actually doing this, are you? Tell me these lunatics aren't right with what they are guessing... please?
"Plus, Po's likely going to meet other pandas. The pandas are supposed to be nearly extinct. The franchise is called "Kung Fu Panda". There are six films planned. There's a pattern here that doesn't seem to involve any tigers."
*sighs* Look... I love this franchise a LOT, and I do so with a passion. I have both the movies, I have the tie-in shorts to them both, and even the holiday special. And do you know what I think makes it all in general so great? They can tell these great stories with no love stories involved in them whatsoever. And I mean, Master Shifu and Master Oogway and all other Masters, can you tell me what they have all in common? They are all portrayed as being asexual, only caring about their Kung Fu and their strong bonds with their friends and equals. That's what I think makes Kung Fu Panda dare to go against the way mainstream movies are, and a big reason (among others) why I love it so much.
I swear that including a love story in the third or any of the following Kung Fu Panda movies will piss me off so much I can not describe it. This is not the place for it. Po is meant to become this Master who goes through challenges and obstacles - I don't care about seeing him get a family or even someone to be together with.
I'm not going to watch the third movie if it gives Po a love interest. I am dead serious. I might care for and love Kung Fu Panda nearly as much as Batman and DC Comics, even though Kung Fu Panda's universe is still working on expanding itself... but I will not forgive them for ruining everything with some bullshit like that.
Tigress and Po shall stay friends, and Rebel Wilson better voice a sister of Po or something like that. I mean... come on, am I really overreacting to this? Really? I know I am very angry right now, but... still.
