The company is a joint venture between the Glendale-based DreamWorks Animation and China'slargest media companies -- China Media Capital, Shanghai Media Group and Shanghai Alliance Investment Ltd.

"Kung Fu Panda 3" is the latest high-profile Hollywood film to be co-produced with China. Other co-productions include "The Expendables 2" and the upcoming movie "Iron Man 3" from Disney/Marvel Studios.
