Kung Fu Panda 3 Recasts Ahead of January Release
Just 4 months out from its release date, 'Kung Fu Panda 3' has been forced to recast the role of Mei-Mei. Rebel Wilson has pulled out due to her schedule's inability to align with the film's extended production schedule.
Kate Hudson has been cast as her replacement, and on top of re-recording all of the work Wilson had done so far, Dreamworks have confirmed that there will be re-animating done for Mei-Mei to suit Hudson's work.
Much of the excitement coming into the 3rd installment of the Kung Fu Panda series was due to the potential of having Jack Black and Rebel Wilson involved in back and forth banter. This promised hilarious results, and it will be interesting to see if Hudson can bring a worthy performance.
