Meanwhile, Po heads home to Panda Village expecting a quick visit and plenty of dumplings but finds himself faced with his biggest challenge yet–Po must teach this ragtag band of kids how to wield their newfound powers.
As news spreads of the reemergence of the Four Constellations, a seemingly peaceful monk, Grand Abbot Jindiao, heads to Panda Village to meet Po and his new students, but all is not as it seems. Jindiao has been searching for the chi of the Four Constellations for a thousand years.
