'Kung Fu Panda 4' is the first animation movie in cinematic High Frame Rate

11 Mar 2024 | Rasmus Larsen |

It was today announced that DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda 4 is the first animation movie released in TrueCut Motion High Frame Rate (48fps) theatrically.

Kung Fu Panda 4 is the fifth release in the new High Frame Rate (HFR) format. Unlike earlier attempts at HFR like The Hobbit, TrueCut Motion takes advantage of scene-by-scene motion grading to retain the cinematic look while also reducing issues associated with standard 24fps, like judder.

Earlier theatrical releases in the new HFR format are Avatar, Avatar: The Way of Water, Titanic, and Argylle

- "The high quality, visual artistry of this amazing, animated work — the first new “Kung Fu Panda” film in almost a decade —will come to premium theatrical screens in cinematic high-frame-rate; achieving dramatically new crystal clear motion playback on the brightest, exceptional high-contrast, high-quality 3D and 2D screens that naturally enhance the look and the feel of the world of the film," announced Pixelworks, the company behind TrueCut Motion.

48fps HFR in select theaters

Kung Fu Panda 4 is presented in 48fps in both 2D and 3D in select premium theaters. None were confirmed but FlatpanelsHD's sources say that it includes Cinity theaters worldwide and Dolby Cinema theaters outside of North America. All other theaters will screen the movie in standard 24fps. It is DreamWorks Animation's - owned by Universal - first title in TrueCut Motion. No details regarding an HFR home release were announced at this time, but FlatpanelsHD is chasing details. Some of the previous TrueCut HFR releases are available now on Apple Vision Pro via the Disney+ and Apple TV apps. As reported earlier, the company behind TrueCut Motion, Pixelworks, is planning to introduce a logo certification program for TVs and other consumer devices to ensure native playback of 48fps and higher frame rate releases at home.
