Members of the press were treated to DreamWorks Animation’s 3D screening of “Kung Fu Panda 2” Tuesday night at the Cinema Star theater in Cannes.

D’Works, also in town with “Puss n’ Boots,” will hold its international press junket for “Panda” Wednesday and Thursday in Cannes, with cast members Jack Black, Angelina Jolie and Dustin Hoffman on hand for interviews (official press conference Thursday). 

As for the film itself, I can’t reveal anything given that reviews are under embargo. (Variety’s Peter Debruge will be writing our review, which will post May 22)

Having said that– “Kung Fu Panda” should make plus-sized bucks this summer, especially with 3D ticket prices. 

“Kung Fu Panda 2,” directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson, opens wide May 26.
