Latest update : 2008-05-17

FRANCE 24 sat down with Jack Black before he and the rest of the cast of "Kung Fu Panda" climbed the steps at Cannes. Also: DJ David Guetta's (in)famous party. Watch the show.

The second day of the Cannes Film Festival saw two animated films making their debut. Hollywood's latest animated comedy, "Kung Fu Panda," is not in the competition but is getting attention because of its all-star cast.  Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Jack Black, and Lucy Liu all lent their voices to the film and gatthered on the steps along la Croisette before the premier.

Quite a different animated film also premiered on the second day of Cannes. "Waltz with Bashir" is a documentary about the 1982 massacres in Lebanon. Its director, Israeli Ari Folman, sat down with FRANCE 24's Elizabeth Tchoungui in an exclusive interview.
