Being a martial arts master takes a lot of hard work and self-discipline, traits that Po the Panda (voice of Jack Black) doesn't really possess. However, when his town is threatened, and the "Chosen One" needs to be found, a group of highly trained warriors attempt to give the pudgy bear the necessary makeover.
