Po's time as the legendary Dragon Warrior is about to go "ska-doosh." In the first trailer for the beloved franchise's long-awaited fourth film, the bumbling panda embarks on a journey to defeat one last villain before passing the torch. 

The first glimpse at the film starts with Dustin Hoffman's Master Shifu telling Po (Jack Black) that he needs to find a successor to succeed him as Dragon Warrior as he ascends to become the Spiritual Leader of the Valley of Peace. 

He settles on a wily fox named Zhen (Awkwafina), who leads him on a journey packed with hijinks to defeat the nefarious Chameleon (Viola Davis). 

Notably absent from the trailer are the Furious Five, voiced by Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu and David Cross

Hans Zimmer, who composed the soundtrack for the first three films, will return to score the upcoming installment. 

Kung Fu Panda 4 is slated to hit theatres on March 8, and by then, it'll have been over eight years since the last Kung Fu Panda movie came out. Watch the full trailer below.
