Strike First, Strike Hard, No Mercy! YouTube Red released the trailer for their new series Cobra Kai. You may be thinking to yourself, that name sounds familiar. It should sound familiar. That is the name of the rival Karate group that took on Danny Larusso in the the 1984 film, Karate Kid. This new series centers around the character Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) as he starts the old Karate school, Cobra Kai, and teaches a new generation of martial artists. Danny Larusso (Ralph Macchio) is in the trailer too and appears that he might be the protagonist this time around. This series is set 34 years after the first movie and looks like it is going to be a wild ride. Check out the trailer for yourself.
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.

Can’t wait for #CobraKai to get released. Johnny is a drunk who still knows how to fight. I hope be beats Danny’s pompous ass.
