I’m not 100% sure but these pics look like screen captures from the latest trailer but here they are anyway.

I think that the trainer is going to be my favorite character. :D

Let's hope there's more to the movie than Po talking too much and getting hit in the face.

Not sure if it's off topic but the Toy Fair showed the new Kong Fu Panda merchandise that shows character design:

He's the villain, right? I love the pic! So dark, and misty.

I don't think he's a villain Daniel.

Here is a synopsis of his character from the Kung-Fu Panda web site.

The story of Mantis: Mantis may be the smallest of the five, but he'd never admit it. The little guy has a textbook Napoleon complex: strong, fast and tiny, he is deadly yet sympathetic to Po's plight and quick to interject humor into any situation. Nothing can strike fear into his brave little heart... except a female mantis. (Check with an entomologist - you'll understand why.)


Mantis Fighting Style: The traditional Mantis style is quick, calculating, responsive and precise. Mantis' small size and Incredible speed make him nearly invisible to opponents, an advantage that he uses to great effect. In addition, Mantis also possesses enormous strength, far more than his tiny size would imply. The powerful, high leaping rear legs and the raptorial forelegs are used as their defensive weapons.
