Kung Fu Panda 3: Po inspects his future Dubai home

By Vicky Kapur

Master Po is in Dubai, surveying the finishing touches being put on his future home.

You heard it right – come October 2016, and Master Po will be living in Dubai when Dubai Parks and Resorts destination will take shape as one of the region’s largest integrated theme park resorts.

The world’s most loveable Kung-Fu-fighting and dumpling-eating panda, Master Po recently stopped by his soon-to-be-future-home at motiongate Dubai, the Hollywood-inspired theme park, part of the Dubai Parks and Resorts destination.

DPR will comprise three separate theme parks and one water park: motiongate Dubai (a Hollywood movie-inspired theme park); Bollywood Parks Dubai (which will showcase authentic Bollywood movie experience); and Legoland Dubai, the first Legoland theme park in the Middle East; together with the Legoland Water Park.

Emirates 24|7 reported this morning that even as the parks are scheduled to open in October 2016, Legoland Dubai will be welcoming a select few who will be on the list of invitees to be part of some of the park’s pre-opening activities, which will be held during the summer vacation period.

The final phase of construction at all three theme parks is ongoing at a rapid pace, Dubai Parks and Resorts has said.

Within that spirit, Po made an exclusive visit to the motiongate park where three action-packed Kung Fu Panda-inspired attractions will open in the DreamWorks zone in October this year.

A long way from the Valley of Peace, the Dragon Warrior and leader of the Furious Five is currently in the UAE promoting his latest film, Kung Fu Panda 3.

Never one to miss out on the action, Po couldn’t resist the opportunity to visit motiongate Dubai and spread some of his warrior-like energy to the team, DPR said in a statement.
