Cobra Kai, the upcoming small-screen spin-off from the 1980s classic The Karate Kid, has just got a full trailer. The film reunites Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) with his old adversary, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) in a new ten-part series heading straight for YouTube Red later this year.
Here’s the synopsis:
In the highly-anticipated return of two iconic characters, the arch-rivals from the legendary Karate Kid film series reunite over 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. Now living in the affluent hills of Encino, Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) leads an enviable life with his beautiful family, while running a successful string of car dealerships throughout the valley. Meanwhile, his high school adversary, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), whose life has taken a rocky turn, seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo. Their lives inevitably become intertwined and the rivalry is reignited, setting forth the next generation of “karate kids” in Cobra Kai, a YouTube Red Original Series. Cobra Kai is produced by Overbrook Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television.
We are assuming that the series will be available in the UK on YouTube for purchase, but we’ll keep you updated.
Here’s the new trailer.
