Blizzcon 2011: No, Jack Black Will NOT Voice a Pandaren in Mists of Pandaria, Metzen Says

GameFront, "Drawing the parallel was inevitable. Mists of Pandaria, the next World of Warcraft expansion, includes anthromorphic pandas who do kung fu with an Eastern influence on their culture and architecture. Sounds awfully like a Dreamworks movie and its sequel starring the once-great but lately lacking Jack Black."

The fact he has to actually come out and state this shows just how much of a piss poor idea this expansion actually is. It doesn't help the Pandaren's racials make them seem almost exactly like Jack Black's character in Kung Fu panda.

"During the World of Warcraft Story and Lore panel at Blizzcon 2011, VP of Creative Development Chris Metzen and Lead Quest Designer Dave Kosak were asked by a fan if Jack Black might find his way to voicing a pandaren leader in the expansion pack. Mr. Metzen was not amused."

As far as I remember, Po was horrible at cooking food at his "father's" restaurant. One of the racials being increased cooking skills kinda contradicts your statement?

So, your comment was wrong and irrelevant.

It's not like they can invent boiled water all over again - those particular traits of said culture have been out for decades in cinema, books and comics. Drawing a conclusion from a movie made in 2009 with anything that comes later with the same theme is just ignorant - should Kung Fu Panda be flamed for ripping off of Warcraft 3's take on the Pandaren? Of course not.

People find similarities in everything just so they can bitch and whine about. Why not wait for the final product and then judge for themselves.
