Anthony Stofferahn of the Media Stomp wrote, "Well here we have it, after a long three years Kung Fu Panda 2 is here. DreamWorks Animation brings us another movie that has a lot of potential. Personally, I really liked the first Kung Fu Panda when it hit theaters. When it came to the marketing that was being done for this movie, I steered away from the trailers and such because I wasn't too interested in a second movie. I'm actually really glad I steered clear otherwise I would have known too much and it might have ruined it."
