The Sun quotes him as saying: "In Kung Fu Panda 2 the baddie sends an evil force right into Po's head, but the lesson he learns is how to turn that force around and send it back twice as strong.

"It is a great way to deal with negativity. We are interested in turning negatives into positives.

"I feel like every kid is trying to get that at school. They take crap from people. We want them to take that as, 'When people are mean to you, don't let that distract you from your passion or vision'."

He added: "In life it's good to learn how to take negatives and turn them into positives.

"Every time something like that happens to us, we just flip it around. It is a very good film."

Martin recently denied that he was regretful for choosing the name Mylo Xyloto for Coldplay's latest album.

Coldplay will embark on a UK stadium tour later this year, with Robyn, Ash and Marina & the Diamonds among the support acts. Their North American tour kicks off this month.
