KUNG FU PANDA 2 is a CGI animated children's comedy about the Dragon Warrior Panda, Po, who has to battle the fearsome Lord Shan who has developed a super weapon that threatens all of China. It was classified 'PG' for mild martial arts action.

The mild martial arts action is very stylised and fantastical, with an emphasis on swooping and flying. The majority of the action features exaggerated kung fu moves, with occasional kicks and blows to the head and torso, and one encounter features a wolf knocking out Po with a blow to the head from a club. The BBFC's Guidelines at 'U' state there may be 'Mild violence only. Occasional mild threat or menace only'. Although fantastical, the martial arts violence slightly exceeds this allowance and is more appropriately placed at ‘PG’ where the Guidelines permit 'Moderate violence, without detail'.

The film also contains some focus on blade-like weapons. The villain, Lord Shan, is a peacock who uses his feathers, which resemble glinting blades, to throw and to threaten other characters. The Guidelines at 'PG' state there should be 'No glamorisation of realistic or easily accessible weapons'. Although Shan's weapons do resemble sharp knives, it is always clear that they are simply feathers plucked from his own tail.
