Po used the Wuxi Finger Hold on him, which was revealed in Kung Fu Panda 3 to send the victim to the Spirit Realm; whether this implies death is unclear. Furthermore, he was seen as one of Kai's amulets around his waist, which represent the kung fu masters in the Spirit Realm that had their chi taken.
Prior to the film, Kung Fu Panda directors John Stevenson and Mark Osborne commented that they have "no idea what happened to Tai Lung," while current franchise film director Jennifer Yuh Nelson commented that she considers him to be dead.
