The first teaser trailer is out for “Cobra Kai,” the new YouTube Red original series that serves as a direct sequel to the original 1984 hit “The Karate Kid”. It premieres later this year.
Over three decades later, Ralph Macchio and William Zabka resurrect their old dojo rivalry in the new project in which Daniel LaRusso is now living a comfortable life with his family in Encino, running a string of car dealerships.
His old rival Johnny (Zabka), however, hasn’t been so fortunate and seeks redemption by reopening Cobra Kai. Josh Heald and Jon Hurwitz & Hayden Schlossberg have penned, executive produced and directed much of the web series.
Will Smith, James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett also serve as executive producers on the series which was made via Sony Pictures Television and Overbrook Entertainment.
