Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny is an American computer-animated streaming television series produced by DreamWorks Animation released for Prime Video on November 16, 2018. It is the second TV series in the Kung Fu Panda franchise following Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness. Developer Mitch Watson has confirmed that Mick Wingert would reprise his role from Legends of Awesomeness as Po.

The second half of season 1 was released on July 4, 2019.

Plot

Set after the events of Kung Fu Panda 3, the series follows Po the panda on a fresh adventure featuring four panda kids (Nu Hai, Jing, Bao and Fan Tong) who happen upon a mystical cave beneath the Panda Village. The panda kids accidentally absorb the chi of ancient and powerful Kung Fu warriors known as the Four Constellations: Blue Dragon, Black Tortoise, White Tiger, and Red Phoenix—each of which represents the core weakness of its user. They realize they are now destined to save the world from an evil force, landing Po with his biggest challenge yet—teaching this ragtag band of kids how to wield their newfound Kung Fu powers.
