Po has a big dream, a dream of becoming a kung fu hero. However, he is big, fat and extremely clumsy and to make matter worse, he is the laziest animal on the planet. No wonder that nobody in his entire village ever believes in his capability of making his dream a reality. Often being the object of ridicule, he tries to prove himself in a competition looking for the ultimate Dragon Warrior. Amazingly, he ends up with the title and a whole lot more as he now has to prepare himself to live up to the legendary role and save his town from the great villain lurking from a distance.
