What happens when a Karate Kid becomes … a Karate Man? That is the easy tagline that appears to be absent from promotional materials for Cobra Kai, an upcoming YouTube Red original series that brings back Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso more than 30 years after their life-defining duel in the original Karate Kid. A few days back, YouTube put out a trailer for the series, boasting the “first-ever footage” from the next installment in what is apparently the Karate Kid saga. Here’s the plot synopsis:
“Karate Kid’s Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso aren’t the same people they were in high school— but their rivalry hasn’t changed one bit. The Karate Kid saga continues.”
Karate Man— I mean, Cobra Kai, comes out at some unspecified later date, but you’ll have to be a YouTube Red subscriber to see it. In the meantime, check out the trailer for the show below, and stay tuned to the series’ official YouTube page here for more info.
