Karate Kid footage

It’s a continuation of the story that began in the 1984 movie The Karate Kid, but flipping the script to make Johnny Lawrence – the wonderfully douchey villain played by William Zabka – into the sympathetic protagonist and turning the film’s crane-kicking hero Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) into a big jerk.

The show picks up three decades after the fateful events of the Under-18 All-Valley Karate Tournament that provided the setting for the rousing climax of the ’84 film, and in a new video, the series creators reveal some never-before-seen Karate Kid footage that they’ll use to recontextualize that famous martial arts match for the new show.
