I don't even remember those teasers, to be honest.

On the dvd of Shrek 2, there's a little featurette where Ben Stiller talks about Madagascar.

Just watched the trailer.

It's short, but the animation looks great so far.

I love the tiger, in design and movement. Some sweet motion in general going on in that trailer. I still think it has potential, so long as the pop culture stuff and body humor is kept to a minimum. Might be a tall order for a Dreamworks CGI film, but I'll still hope. ;)

I like that they're doing it in CinemaScope, something that the studio hasn't done since "Spirit".

Is it me, or does the animation look really <I>cheap</I>?

The characters aren't bad, but I hate watching this stuff on the lo-res clips we have on the net sometimes because you can't see the detail and without the detail, it looks el-cheapo.

Where did you get the CinemaScope specs from WJ, I didn't notice anything approaching those dimensions though it would indeed be cool if they went that wide for a kung-fu movie...something fitting in that.

Quite obvious to use Kung-Fu Fighting as a music choice, though it seems to fit this, probably because it's mainstream commercial animation.

Well, it at least looks like its CinemaScope when I watch it in the standard format (not HD) on my computer. But it could just be the way it plays on my screen.

Looks like standard 1.78:1 to me. I'd be very surprised if it was 2.35:1. It would be very cool, but I'd be very surprised.

About the new trailer - didn't they do the 'flying through the air and screaming in slo-mo' gag in Bee Movie?

There are two at the moment indeed. This one is the (official) trailer. http://movies.aol.com/movie/kung-fu-panda/24474/main
I think the movie looks better than in the first one.
