That's an old one. I've already seen that.
And the design looks bad.

I don't think it looks bad..It's pretty cool actually - very oriental and different looking.

I do like the design for this movie, from what I've seen. And if they nail the story, it'll probably be great fun. This guy looks sweet - huzzah for big cats!

I could just be a sucker for animals that practice martial arts. :P

(Possible) look for the Panda film (not sure since it's just work the artist is referencing.) But I hope the film looks like this! :)

hmm; I must've missed this thread, the first time around.

Not to imply that this might have been the inspiration for the movie (Pandas are native to China, after all .. so mixing them with martial-arts seems quite a 'natural' concept), but Kung-Fu Pandas reminds me of one of my favorite comic-books from the 1980's: Panda Khan!

Image

Panda Khan, drawn by David Garcia and written by Monica Sharp, first appeared as a series of backup stories in the original Warp Graphics run of A Distant Soil, before graduating to its own (short-lived) series of full-length comic-books published by Abacus Press.

The story involved a clan of anthropomorphic pandas, The Brotherhood of P'an, who lived on the distant planet of Da Tu. Their society greatly resembles that of ancient China, and indeed, over the course of the story we learn that the pandas themselves may be the result of a long-forgotten genetic experiment, initiated long ago by a chinese human scientist from Earth.

The primary 'villain' which Panda Khan and his clan fought was Shibo, the self-proclaimed "Lord of Death," who was, for most of the series, the only human on the planet Da Tu; probably 'exiled' there long ago, as a form of criminal punishment. His weapons were technological in nature, but were viewed as 'magic' or 'wizardry' by the less-tech-'savvy' pandas.

The Brotherhood also struggled merely to survive on the harsh world of Da Tu; constantly on their guard against the warlike Ursii (primitive bear clans) and the underground-dwelling, insect-like T'chkl.

----------------------------

I'm not completely sure if the comic-book 'Panda Khan' and the character who eventually appeared on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series are 'one-and-the-same' .. but their back-stories are fairly similar, and they certainly look alike, so I guess it's possible.
