Netflix’s action comedy animation series Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight comes to an end with the third and final season. The series delivers a killer dose of action and also manages to get a few laughs out of it as the Dragon Knights seek to collect and destroy the Tianshang weapons to save the world from eternal doom. 

Po the Kung Fu Dragon Master and his team of devoted friends commit themselves to saving the world from this atrocity while picking up new recruits till the very end. Interestingly, every single member of the Dragon Knights once possessed or wanted to possess the weapons until a change of mind. 

The series primarily features Blade as the protagonist, who initially is just seeking to avenge her brother by going after the mage who took his life. They are joined by the monkey from India, Rukmini, who once possessed the Whip of Endless Flames. Akna, the inventor, also joins their company after they discover her on a volcano while protecting a city.

They are joined by Colin, a knight seeking to capture Blade to accomplish his task as a knight, and surprisingly, Klaus Dumont, a former antagonist turned ally, as he is the only one who can summon the ancient masters.

Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight Season 3 consists of a plethora of antagonists, as each of them seeks to rule the world or indirectly get in the way of the Dragon Knights and their weapons. The final season starts off with the Dragon Knights keeping the weapons from the older Dumont, followed by the Master of War, Sir Drake. 

What stands out about the series is the amazingly crafted and well-thought-out storyline. It is incredibly captivating, intricately crafted, and remains consistent while bestowing the characters with relevant roles and retaining all the characters in very creative ways throughout the show. 

The characters have a decent amount of depth and, to a certain degree, can be empathized with. Understandably, the characters have been crafted with a certain intent, but there are certain tendencies among them that can be really frustrating. 

For instance, Po’s simple-mindedness and naivety make him an extremely unidimensional character. This would still blend amazingly if Po was a formidable fighter, but the show does not portray him in any such manner. The name of the series is “Kung Fu Panda,” but we do not see a lot of Kung Fu in the Panda in any important action scenes of the show.

Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight Season 3 overwhelmingly focuses on Blade, a character too uptight to play the lead of the series and be the redemption of the world. To say the least, the show is amazing for anyone who isn’t familiar with the Kung Fu Panda films, however, is a huge letdown for fans of the franchise.

One more important factor lacking in the series is the scenic beauty the films encapsulate. The reason for this is that most of the series happens outside of China, in London, India, and Tikal. This takes away the opportunity to include the cherry blossom trees and misty starry nights, along with serene flute music. All in all the animation series’ storyline and screenwriting is phenomenal, but it fails to embody what makes it a Kung Fu Panda series.
