Co-composed by Hanz Zimmer and John Powell, both of whom helmed the first installment of the immensely popular Dreamworks animation series, the score for Kung Fu Panda 2 dutifully expands on the motifs that the pair introduced in the inaugural film. Zimmer, who traveled to China in 2007 to absorb the country’s rich musical history, adds more regional flare to the orchestral score this time around, but listeners who enjoyed the initial blend of swashbuckling, martial arts-inspired adventure themes and lush, pastoral interludes won’t come away disappointed, as the two styles are well represented here.
Words cannot describe the awesomeness!
Just saw the movie about an hour ago and it was just AWESOME!!!!! It was funny, action packed, sad, just pure epicness. The movie wouldn't be close to the greatness that it has achieved without the magnificent music that was in it. It is a perfect movie and a
Brilliant movie, amazing soundtrack. Each sound captures the moments in the film perfectly, and everything works together to create a film that reminded me why I liked the cinema, and a soundtrack that matches it perfectly.
Awesomest of all music
Sounds really something that is Chinese and really brings me into the music
