Integrity, perseverance, and teamwork are important themes. Strong message about identity -- finding your true self, what you're best at, and what you love. Po is told by Shifu: "If you only do what you can do, you will never be more than you are now." And you should be and embrace who you are, not who someone else is. Also, family is more than biology; it's accepted that Po has two dads. While violence remains the main means of conflict resolution, the pandas fight the bad guy with a coordinated effort that involves lobbing food (and themselves!) more than weaponry.
