Cobra Kai Trailer

With March Madness stirring up sports fans, it’s the perfect time for YouTube’s upcoming Karate Kid sequel series Cobra Kai to make more people aware of the show’s existence.

Touting the karate tournament angle that was made so famous by The Karate Kid in 1984, a new promo shows plenty of punching and kicking. However, despite the teasers indicating a new confrontation between the film’s original stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, there’s no real fighting seen between the two. Instead, we see a new protege of the titular karate dojo fighting in competition. Read More »

Daniel LaRusso may have been an underdog in 1984’s The Karate Kid, but three decades later, the character has become a car dealer content with rehashing his glory days. How’s that for a character shift?

Cobra Kai Trailer

It looks like YouTube is going to keep teasing The Karate Kid sequel series Cobra Kai little by little until they announce the release date. Ralph Macchio returns as Daniel LaRusso, the title character from the 1984 movie, while William Zabka reprises his role as bully Jonny Lawrence. But the tables may be a little turned this time.

Jonny decides to repoen the Cobra Kai dojo that once gave his life purpose, something he’s struggled to find in his older years as a septic tank cleaner who has a somewhat depressing existence. However, that decision doesn’t sit too well with Daniel LaRusso for some reason. A new Cobra Kai trailer shows us this new dynamic. Read More »

Cobra Kai Trailer

Looking to finally make a splash in the original programming game, YouTube Red has a new series called Cobra Kai that picks up where The Karate Kid left off. Or at least it picks up about 30 years later with a grown-up Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) trying to turn his life around by reopening the Cobra Kai dojo, the same place he learned karate when he was a teenager.

The first Cobra Kai teaser trailer was all about establishing the premise and teasing the reunion of Johnny Lawrence with The Karate Kid himself, Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio). But this one strictly focuses on Lawrence and the return of the Cobra Kai dojo. There’s not a ton of new footage, but it does provide a somewhat better introduction to the teen that Lawrence takes under his wing. Read More »

This inevitably leads to a confrontation with Daniel (Macchio) and the return of the old rivalry between them. Read More »

Karate Kid YouTube Series

YouTube Global Head of Original Content Susanne Daniels was on an executive panel for the Television Critics Association, an /Film got the chance to ask her about the upcoming YouTube Red original series Cobra Kai, based on the 1980s classic The Karate Kid.

In Cobra Kai, Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reprise their rival roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence from the original movie. Though the series comes from Harold and Kumar franchise creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, and Hot Tub Time Machine writer Josh Heald, Daniels said Cobra Kai is not a straight comedy.
