Kung Fu Panda: The TV Series Underway

Kung Fu Panda made over $630 million worldwide when it opened last year, helped along by great comedy, some rather lovely animation and a starry voice cast including Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Dustin Hoffman and many more. So it's no surprise to learn that Nickelodeon is set to turn it into a TV series.

Now DreamWorks has already lined up a 3-D sequel with the original cast returning for 2011. But this will be a separate affair, involving less labour-intensive animation and 26 episodes of a series. And also, we're saying, no A-list cast members.

The deal comes after DreamWorks and Nickelodeon teamed to bring standout Madagascar stars the Penguins to their own series on the channel, which landed the most-watched premiere ever on Nickelodeon and is still the second-most popular show on the channel behind the mighty Spongebob Squarepants.

The series is due next year, so should keep you ticking over until the new film arrives in 2011.
