I was talking to a friend the other day about foreshadowing and had a question about the movie 'Kung Fu Panda'. In the movie, the Praying Mantis is trying to do acupuncture on Po, but can't hit any proper nerves because Po is so large. Later on in the movie, this is crucial because the bad guy tries to do a special move by hitting Po's nerves but all it does is tickle him. Is the acupuncture scene a foreshadow? Without that scene, we wouldn't understand why the move doesn't work later. ~ J. J.
