The animals try to fly back to New York City, but crash-land on an African wildlife refuge, where Alex is reunited with his parents.
Meanwhile, Oogway exacted a promise from Shifu that the latter would believe in and train Po, and then ascended to the heavens in a swirl of flower petals, conferring his guardianship of the Valley of Peace upon Shifu.
