Netflix has dropped an official trailer for Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight, the forthcoming animated series featuring the return of Kung Fu Panda star Jack Black as Dragon Warrior Po. It will be available for streaming on July 14.

The video introduces Po’s newest enemies, Klaus and Veruca — a pair of weasels who are planning to take over the world. With the help of a new ally, Po must go on a mission to stop the villainous duo from achieving their evil plans.

Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight is executive produced by Peter Hastings and Shaunt Nigoghossian, along with Chris Amick and Ben Mekler. Joining Black are franchise vet James Hong as Mr. Ping, Rita Ora as Wandering Blade, Chris Geere as Klaus Dumont, Della Saba as Veruca Dumont, Rahnuma Panthaky as Rukhmini, Ed Weeks as Colin, and Amy Hill as Pei Pei.

“When a mysterious pair of weasels set their sights on a collection of four powerful weapons, Po must leave his home to embark on a globe-trotting quest for redemption and justice that finds him partnered up with a no-nonsense English knight named Wandering Blade,” reads the synopsis. “Together, these two mismatched warriors set out on an epic adventure to find the magical weapons first and save the world from destruction – and they may even learn a thing or two from each other along the way.”

This marks the Golden Globe winner’s first Kung Fu Panda project outside of the film series. The lead character was previously voiced by Mick Wingert in TV spin-offs Nickelodeon’s Legends of Awesomeness and Prime Video’s Paws of Destiny.
