Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has rvealed how he finds the animated movie Kung Fu Panda 2 inspirational to children. Chris claims that the movie, which stars Jack Black as the voice of the panda, teaches kids some valuable life lessons.
Martin explained to The Sun, "In Kung Fu Panda 2 the baddie sends an evil force right into Po's head, but the lesson he learns is how to turn that force around and send it back twice as strong. It is a great way to deal with negativity. We are interested in turning negatives into positives.
He added, "I feel like every kid is trying to get that at school. They take crap from people. We want them to take that as, 'When people are mean to you, don't let that distract you from your passion or vision'."
Chris continued, "In life it's good to learn how to take negatives and turn them into positives. Every time something like that happens to us, we just flip it around. It is a very good film."
Coldplay are set for a UK stadium tour this year, where they will be supported by acts such as Robyn, Ash and Marina & the Diamonds. The Coldplay North American tour begins later this month.
