Over three decades ago audiences triumphed as The Karate Kid, Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio), fought the odds against an unscrupulous opponent, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), to take the trophy at the All Valley Karate Tournament. Who could forget injured Daniel’s infamous crane kick responsible for bringing shame to the losing Cobra Kai Dojo? And, who hasn’t at least once tried to perform that challenging move themselves? Ah, 80’s nostalgia. I often wondered though, what happened to the shamed Johnny Lawrence? Has he learned his lesson?
Last year YouTube Red announced a new series, Cobra Kai that intends to answer those very questions. Now we get our first peek with stars Ralph Macchio and William Zapka reprising their roles to continue the conflict.
“I just don’t know why you’d ever want to bring back Cobra Kai.” – Cobra Kai, Daniel LaRusso
