Nickelodeon Netherlands to Premiere 'Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny' on Monday 25th November 2019

Nickelodeon Benelux has acquired the rights to Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny, and will premiere DreamWorks Animation and Amazon Video's laugh-filled CG-animated series, based on the popular Kung Fu Panda franchise on Nickelodeon Netherlands (Nederland) on Monday 25th November 2019 at 16:30 uur. Following launch, new episodes will continue to air weekdays at 16:30 uur on Nick Nederland. It's currently unknown whether the series will also air on Nickelodeon Flanders and Nickelodeon Wallonia.

As the Dragon Master, Po has endured his fair share of epic challenges but nothing could prepare him for his greatest one yet-as a Kung Fu teacher to a group of rambunctious kids from Panda Village who have been imbued with a mysterious and powerful chi energy. Together they embark on amazing adventures, battle ferocious villains, and become legends!

Set after the events of Kung Fu Panda 3, Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny follows Po the panda on a fresh adventure featuring four panda cubs (Nu Hai, Jing, Bao and Fan Tong) who happen upon a mystical cave beneath the Panda Village. The panda kids accidentally absorb the chi of ancient and powerful Kung Fu warriors known as the Four Constellations: Blue Dragon, Black Tortoise, White Tiger, and Red Phoenix — each of which represents the core weakness of its user. They realise they are now destined to save the world from an evil force, landing Po with his biggest challenge yet — teaching this ragtag band of kids how to wield their newfound Kung Fu powers.

From Emmy Award-winning executive producers Mitch Watson (Tak and the Power of Juju, Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus, Duckman: Private Dick/Family Man, All Hail King Julien), Elliott Owen (All Hail King Julien) and Lane Lueras (The Adventures of Puss in Boots), Paws of Destiny features the voices of Chrissy Metz (This Is Us) as Mei Mei, Mick Wingert (Lucky, Breadwinners, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Kid Danger, Kung Fu Panda) as Po, Haley Tju (Middle School Moguls, The Loud House, Bella and the Bulldogs, The Massively Mixed-Up Middle School Mystery, Rufus) as Nu Hai, Laya DeLeon Hayes (Game Shakers, Santa Hunters, The Thundermans, Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, Mutt & Stuff, Just Add Magic, Doc McStuffins) as Jing, Gunnar Sizemore (The Casagrandes, Lucky, Ben 10) as Bao, Makana Say (The Loud House, The Casagrandes) as Fan Tong, James Hong (The Thundermans, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Kung Fu Panda franchise) as Mr. Ping, Amy Hill (The Legend of Korra, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, The Wild Thornberrys: The Origin of Donnie, American Dad!, Mom, Black-ish, King of the Hill, Max Keeble's Big Move, 50 First Dates) as Grandma Panda, Grey Griffin (Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom, The Loud House, El Tigre, Wow Wow Wubbzy, As Told by Ginger, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Mighty B!, Rugrats, The Simpsons) as Xin, and Sumalee Montano (The Loud House, The Casagrandes, Nashville) as Mei Mei.
