Is Kung Fu Panda 4 streaming?

In 2008, DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda introduced the world to Po (Jack Black), a clumsy and oversized panda who seemed like an odd choice to be the next Dragon Warrior. However, Po proved his detractors wrong and vanquished the evil Tai Lung (Ian McShane) before claiming the mantle as his own. This week, Po is back in theaters after an eight-year hiatus with Kung Fu Panda 4, and it’s time for a new Dragon Warrior to be named.

Black and McShane are reprising their roles as Po and Tai Lung, respectively. Also returning for this film are Dustin Hoffman as Master Shifu, James Hong as Mr. Ping, and Bryan Cranston as Li Shan. Viola Davis is playing the new villain, who’s known as The Chameleon. Awkwafina is co-starring as Zhen, a fox who becomes Po’s ally and companion in the new film.

Now that Kung Fu Panda 4 is playing in theaters, it’s time to address the question that brought you to this post.

No, not yet. But Universal Pictures and Peacock have been known to release some of DreamWorks Animation’s movies the same day as their streaming premiere. That didn’t happen with Kung Fu Panda 4 because this is one of DreamWorks Animation’s most dependable franchises, which has already spanned multiple TV shows and specials in addition to the three previous films.

The bottom line is that Kung Fu Panda 4 is going to make money at the box office. The early projections currently have Kung Fu Panda 4 finishing with $50 million over this weekend, which should be more than enough to top Dune: Part Two if that number holds. If Kung Fu Panda 4 has good repeat business over the next few weeks, then Kung Fu Panda 5 won’t be out of the question.

When will Kung Fu Panda 4 be available to stream?

Peacock has been somewhat inconsistent with its streaming release time frames for DreamWorks Animation’s films. A few animated titles have premiered on Peacock just under three weeks after they debuted theatrically. Kung Fu Panda 4 will probably get a longer exclusive window in theaters simply because it’s opening projection suggests that it could play well for several weeks.

Assuming that Kung Fu Panda 4 gets to remain a theatrical exclusive during its run, the soonest it would likely premiere on Peacock would be June. But it will definitely be streaming by this summer.

There are plenty of reasons to be skeptical of the streaming revolution and everything that it's wrought. Still, one undeniable benefit of all these streaming services is that, in addition to more American content, we also get more stuff from other countries.

Not all of that stuff is great, of course, but entire new fandoms have emerged in part through American exposure to great TV and movies from all over the world. That may be true when it comes to Korean dramas, which have become incredibly popular in recent years.

3 great movies leaving Peacock in February you have to watch
The cast of Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.

Peacock celebrated the streaming premiere of Oppenheimer by adding several other Christopher Nolan movies to its lineup for February. What Peacock declined to mention is that The Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, and Dunkirk are all leaving at the end of the month. So you only have a short time left if you want to curate your own Nolan film festival at home.

Our picks for the three movies leaving Peacock in February that you have to watch only includes one of Nolan's films, because it just wouldn't be fair to give him the entire spotlight. Our other picks include a family drama starring George Clooney, as well as a Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller comedy that is turning 20 in 2024.
