MrBeast voices character in Kung Fu Panda 4 movie and the internet is 'disappointed'

MrBeast voices character in Kung Fu Panda 4 movie and the internet is 'disappointed'

The famed YouTuber managed to land a role in the new and highly anticipated movie.

MrBeast is officially taking on Hollywood.

The YouTuber found global fame on the social media platform, where he boasts a staggering 243 million subscribers.

As of this year, it's estimated that the 25-year-old has a net worth of $500 million.

In the wake of his huge success on YouTube and his largely young fanbase, MrBeast - real name James Donaldson - has since bagged a cameo in Kung Fu Panda 4.

He voices Panda Pig in the highly anticipated fourth instalment of the Kung Fu Panda franchise, headed by Jack Black.

With the movie being released in the US yesterday (March 8), people have been sharing their thoughts on MrBeast's unexpected cameo - and some viewers don't seem to be onboard with it.

"We didn't ask for this..." one person penned on X (formerly Twitter), as another added of the news: "Why is Mr Beast in KUNG FU PANDA 4.

"He’s not an actor and i refuse to believe that children would recognize him by his voice so like why. I hate it please take it back."

Echoing similar sentiments, another X user said: "Ah yes, that voice actor. Not like there isn’t enough qualified voice actors looking for work right now."

Someone else went on: "Mr beast a good dude but don't do Kung Fu Panda dirty like that. Keep it OG."

"He should stick to youtube pls," a different person said.

Other film fans didn't see the problem with the YouTuber starring the movie, however.

"The news that Mr Beast will star as Panda Pig in 'KUNG FU PANDA 4' is amazing," someone penned head of the film's US debut.

"MrBeast carried Kung Fu Panda 4," another person who has already seen the movie wrote.

Writing to the YouTuber direct, a different person penned: "@MrBeast I don’t watch YouTube or any of that but just wanted to say I’m hype for you to be in Kung Fu Panda."

While someone else said: "I am invested!"

Away from MrBeast's feature in the film, fans so far seem to be enjoying Kung Fu Panda 4.

At the time of writing, the DreamWorks classic boasts an 86 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

However, some have expressed worries that the franchise is 'running out of steam'.

The fourth instalment comes eight years after the third movie, and 16 years since the first.

Kung Fu Panda 4 comes to the UK on March 28.
