Dans un futur proche, la plupart des enfants ont été décimés par un virus inconnu. Les survivants dotés de pouvoirs psychiques incontrôlables, sont classés par couleur (du vert au rouge en passant par le bleu, le jaune et l'orange) en fonction du danger qu’ils représentent pour la société, et emprisonnés dans des camps. Ruby, l’une des plus puissantes d’entre eux, parvient à s’en échapper pour rejoindre un groupe de jeunes en fuite à la recherche d’un refuge. Rapidement, cette nouvelle « famille » réalise que fuir ne suffira pas dans un monde où les adultes au pouvoir les ont trahis. Ils vont mener une rébellion, unissant leurs pouvoirs pour reprendre le contrôle de leur avenir.

Po reunites with his biological father and travels with him to a secret sanctuary of pandas where, to his surprise, he does not fit in. There he meets Mei Mei, an overly eager panda, who had been promised to Po through an arranged marriage when they were children. To make matters worse, an evil ancient spirit called Kai begins terrorizing China and stealing the powers of defeated kung fu masters. Now, in the face of incredible odds, Po must learn to train a village of clumsy, fun-loving pandas to become a band of Kung Fu Pandas.

An opening prologue set years before the events of the first film tells that Lord Shen, the scion of a peacock clan that rules Gongmen City in ancient China, seeks to harness fireworks as a weapon. After discovering from the court's goat Soothsayer that "a warrior of black-and-white" will defeat him if he does not change his ways, Shen leads an army of wolves to exterminate the panda population to avert the prophecy. Shen's parents are horrified at this atrocity and exile their son, who swears revenge.

Sinbad and his pirate crew attempt to steal the magical "Book of Peace" while it travels to Syracuse, Sicily, protected by Proteus. Proteus was once Sinbad's best friend as a child and he tells him if it ever meant anything he can prove it. Sinbad tries to steal the book anyway, but is prevented when Cetus attacks the ship. The two work together to fight off Cetus and for a moment reaffirm their bond. Just when it seems the beast is defeated, Sinbad is dragged off the ship. Proteus goes to save Sinbad, but he is stopped by his crew.
