Stolen Kung Fu Panda Idea?

California -- An American tai chi master has reportedly accused the movie company DreamWorks Animation of stealing one of its most lucrative characters - the Kung Fu Panda.

The man describes himself as ... are you ready for this ... a writer-producer-teacher-philosopher, according to He also says ... are you even ready for this ... "he pioneered the practice of tai chi, kung fu and qigong in modern medicine." No sh** Shirley...

The man is reportedly claiming in a lawsuit that he originated the idea for a movie about a "spiritual kung-fu fighting panda bear" and that he contacted the company in November 2001 and had meetings with them before they, months later, decided to make "Kung Fu Panda" without involving him.
