Best Kung Fu Panda trailer ever!

Why, exactly, was he using a sharpened stick instead of the giant blade he had, you know, right there in his hand? Actually, this was pretty dull for a fighting scene. No suspense, no fear, no impact. But there was sniffling and spitting, so I give it that.

I liked it, hypes up the game and the teamwork aspect really well to me, that game was never my thing but I can see the appeal in it. Its not about the fighting, but fighting against and alongside online friends that's key to the game imo and this trailer nailed that aspect. Had a surprisingly subdued palette too which is nice for a change although my eyes were finding it hard to focus on aspects because it blended together a lot.

This stick / spear is way longer as his sword and it offers some great fighting abilities.... makes sense to me

a blizzard cinematic with... HUMOR?!

I don't play WOW, but this is the best cinematic I've seen Blizzard make in years. Its so different from all the dark, gritty, boring stuff they usually do. Game trailers today try too hard to look badass and forget to convey fun.

I forgot to actually comment on the trailer.

It looks fantastic and I like how the characters went from typical roaring, angry, all out fighting to goofy confused looks by the end. Especially the orc's reaction. My favorite parts of the past trailers has always been the player characters and not so much the big boss guys.

i agree, that one is alot better then the cataclysm cinematic because its different.
i really like how they matched the stylized look of the game and chars in the game to a high res cinematic, great work.

Wow! It's looks amazing, and to be honest blizzards WoW trailers have been awesome since the start! Loved BC, loved WotLK... Cata was okay. But Now, I'm done with WoW, Thinking of going Guild Wars 2, Great game. And The panda Expansion looked disappointing... but I do think that the trailer looked amazing, would love to know how they did it.. Especially the hair/fur! I really need to learn how to make good realistic hair/fur on animals! Because I love doing them in CG but can never get the hair to looks that amazing! But just started working with hair farm, and loving it! Great job blizzard, sorry the game doesn't look as interesting and enticing as the trailer, but again great work! Always love seeing you cinematics!

Although it is masterfully done, it is not what I expected. I like that dark and gritty theme. From a personal point of view, this one is definitely not at the top of them all. Lich king cinematic still has the throne.

ugh... pandas.... it just says it all.
