Destiny has a new role for him — becoming the Spiritual Leader of the Valley of Peace. But there's a twist: before Po can take on this prestigious role, he must search for and train a new Dragon Warrior.

This dynamic pairing promises a blend of comedy and high-octane action, proving that heroes can emerge from the most unexpected places.
