Here's the first look.
But that rivalry will be revisited now in Cobra Kai.
Get ready for The Karate Kid to become a TV series on YouTube Red. At the time, she said, "I think it leans into the tone of the movies in that there are dramatic moments throughout". The return of Cobra Kai awakens old feelings in both of them, feelings that are most likely escalated by Daniel's daughter dating a bully named Kyler - who is much like Johnny used to be - and Johnny trying to teach a student being bullied by Kyler, mirroring Daniel.
1984's The Karate Kid was directed by John G. Avildsen, and kicked off a new wave of martial arts pop culture mania in America.
What Is Cobra Kai About? Hurwitz & Schlossberg will direct much of the series.
Tanner Buchanan plays "Johnny's street-smart son Robby Keene".
In a neat surprise, Ed Asner is Sid Weinberg, Johnny's "reluctant stepfather...an old-school, hard-nosed, former studio mogul, who is exhausted of dealing with his stepson's failures". Ed Asner and Sid Weinberg are tapped to guest-star on the upcoming series, with the former playing Johnny's old-school stepfather.
Courtney Henggeler is Amanda, "Daniel's wife and business partner...the glue that keeps the LaRusso household and dealership running, and a calming force in Daniel's life". Whereas Daniel is the picture of stability as a vehicle dealer and family man. In fact, it looks like there's flashback to when Johnny first discovered the Cobra Kai dojo. Season 1 of the half-hour comedy is executive produced by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, and will consist of 10 episodes.
