Cobra Kai Teaser: YouTube Resurrects The Karate Kid


Although a follow-up to the 2010 Karate Kid reboot starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan is now seeming pretty unlikely, you may be surprised to hear that the original 1984 film is about to get another sequel of its own. Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are back reprising their roles as Daniel and Johnny for a YouTube Red series called Cobra Kai that picks up over three decades later. Written by Josh Heald (Hot Tub Time Machine), Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold and Kumar), there was speculation that this might be more of a comedy but the first teaser seems to be taking itself pretty seriously. Who would have guessed that after all this time, Daniel and Johnny are still holding a grudge? Cobra Kai arrives on YouTube Red later this year; check out the first teaser trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
