It has been some time since Kung Fu Panda graced movie screens in 2008, becoming a surprise commercial and critical hit. An equally impressive follow-up arrived in 2011, but there was a five-year break before another title came to fruition. Now, after eight more years, Kung Fu Panda 4 is unexpectedly being released to cinemas.

Like most studio animated fare, it’ll certainly work well enough for small children. However, older viewers will note that this effort doesn’t feel necessary. In fact, it coasts along and seems to be...
