That famous goose Mr. Ping took center stage at Universal Studios Hollywood this week, as he hosted the grand opening ceremony for the park’s all-new DreamWorks Theatre and its first featured attraction “Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest.”
A martial arts display and dragon warrior parade also helped ring in the occasion Thursday morning as the state-of-the-art new show has now officially opened its doors to guests after a brief soft-opening period through the past couple weeks. DreamWorks characters from “Shrek,” “Madagascar,” and “Trolls” were also on hand to congratulate Po, who demonstrated his Kung Fu prowess for the enthusiastic crowd.
