Microsoft has released a desktop theme for Windows 7 that comprises the characters present in Kung Fu Panda 2.
Call it a fad, an obsession, or the latest marketing gimmick but Microsoft is surely indulging its Windows 7 users as far as desktop themes are concerned. Characters from the Dark Knight, Avatar, Harry Potter have all made their way to Windows 7 desktop and now it’s the turn of Po, Master Shifu, and the Furious Five. That’s right! The zany star cast of Kung Fu Panda 2 is the latest addition to the Windows 7 Gallery.
There are two types of Kung Fu Panda 2 themes available for Windows 7 users. While one has 20 wallpapers, the other has nine and all of them are of high resolution. Apart from the prominent characters, the wallpapers also feature the Kung Fu masters who appear in the film. Then there are customizable icons and users will hear special sounds and even Po's dialogues at the time of startup. The themes can all be downloaded free of cost.
In the hit 3D movie Kung Fu Panda 2 that came out of the DreamWorks Animation factory in May this year, Po embarks on another adventurous journey with Master Shifu and his five disciples viz. Mantis, Tigress, Viper, Monkey, and Crane. This time around, their mission is to foil the attempts of Lord Shen, the evil peacock, who is keen to capture the whole of China with his powerful weapon.
Kung Fu Panda 2 is the third animation film after Shrek and Rio whose theme Microsoft has created for Windows 7. There is a fair chance that this one might climb up the popularity chart higher than the previous two.
