* ScrewedByTheLawyers: In 2011, a man named Jayme Gordon attempted to sue DWA for stealing his ideas for a panda kung fu character. After two years of litigation in which Gordon tried to get a multi-million dollar settlement (Creator/DreamWorks rejected all attempts at it), DWA, their lawyers, and Jeffrey Katzenberg finally discovered a ''[[Disney/TheLionKing Lion King]]'' coloring book by Creator/{{Disney}} that had '''very suspiciously''' similar artwork outlines to what Gordon had presented as evidence (his presentations were dated to have been created when Katzenberg was still chairman of the Walt Disney Studios; the Disney coloring book was published in 1996, two years after Katzenberg had left Disney). Gordon immediately dropped his lawsuit and earned his [[LaserGuidedKarma own dose of legal problems from prosecutors]] when they charged him with wire fraud, perjury, and destroying critical documents in his ill-fated attempt to rip off [=DreamWorks=] Animation two years later for taking the Disney drawings and trying to pass them off as his own; [[http://deadline.com/2015/12/kung-fu-panda-indictment-fraud-perjury-dreamworks-animation-1201671213/ this can net him up to 25 years in prison]] (20 years for the fabricating and ripping off of '''Disney''' as well as [=DreamWorks=], part of which saw him destroy evidence he was legally obliged to produce, and 5 for lying under oath) as well as possibly incur a countersuit from DWA to recover the money they spent on legal bills (the idea of Disney filing their own lawsuit against Gordon for [[SerialNumbersFiledOff plagiarizing one of their books for extortion purposes]] may not be far off, either).

** In the second film, [[spoiler: Po's biological father Li]] was voiced by Fred Tatasciore. In the third film, he's voiced by Bryan Cranston. It helps that Tatasciore didn't have many lines in the film, making it easier for Cranston to voice the character.
