The characters' exact ages haven't confirmed, though it is assumed that all the main characters are at least over 20.

Po is in his 20s, as revealed in Secrets of the Scroll, Kung Fu Panda 3, and director Jennifer Yuh Nelson.[1]

Tigress is at least over 20. She became Shifu's student probably after then Tai Lung was put in jail for that long, as she states in Kung Fu Panda 2 that she used to punch ironwood trees for that long and was teenager 10 years ago as revealed in Secrets of the Scroll.

Crane is at least 26, as Po states in Secrets of the Furious Five that he was at the Lee Da Kung Fu Academy twenty years prior, and as Crane states in the episode Mama Told Me not to Kung Fu he had to wear armour until he was six years old before he worked as a janitor at the Lee Da Kung Fu Academy.

Shen was at least over 30. In Kung Fu Panda 2, he spoke of having a vision of his rule over Gongmen City alongside his cannon for that long.

It is unknown how old Shifu is, though he was an adult when he found Tai Lung, and Tai Lung was an adult when he was put in jail for twenty years.

It is known that Oogway was nearly 1,000 years old.[2]

Mei Mei is the same age as Po, revealed by Head of Story Phillip Craven.[3]
