New COBRA KAI Trailers Introduce Us To The Kids of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence
Three new promo spots have been released for the upcoming Cobra Kai series. The first two promos introduce us to Daniel LaRusso's (Ralph Macchio) daughter Sam (Mary Mouser) and Johnny Lawrence's (William Zabka) son Robby (Tanner Buchanan). The third focuses on the new Karate Kid, a young teen named Miguel (Xolo Maridueña), who Lawrence will be taking under his wing and training at his Cobra Kai dojo.
In the trailers, we see that LaRusso is trying to keep his daughter away from those bad Cobra Kai boys, and Lawrence is trying to deal with a son that has no respect for him. I actually kinda feel bad for what Lawrence is going through! Losing that tournament in the 80s ruined his life! Then we got to see how Lawrence goes about training Miguel in the art of Karate and it's pretty amusing.
As someone who grew up loving the Karate Kid film franchise, I can't wait to watch this series. Are you excited about this new Cobra Kai series?!
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.
Cobra Kai will be released on YouTube Red on May 2nd, 2018.
