First COBRA KAI Teaser Hints At a KARATE KID Rematch

Cobra Kai teaser trailer reignites the Karate Kid rivalry for sequel series

Original stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are back as karate rivals Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, and as the teaser above shows, they're still nursing wounds from the old days.

It's been almost 34 years since moviegoers saw these two face off at the All Valley Karate Tournament in 1984's The Karate Kid.

Set more than three decades after the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, Cobra Kai - if you need a refresher, that's the name of the old dojo - finds Daniel LaRusso (Macchio) living a comfortable life with his family in Encino, running a string of auto dealerships.

During The Karate Kid's climax, Johnny clearly didn't want to follow his sensei's command to sweep Daniel's injured leg. Johnny knew it was wrong, but he did it anyway. This isn't the first time that Zabka and Macchio have crossed paths since The Karate Kid. With Mr. Miyagi's life lessons, Daniel has found personal success in his own family and career as a auto dealer.

"We are not trained to be merciful here".

Writing the series are Josh Heald (Hot Tub Time Machine), Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold & Kumar). Hard to say. But we'll find out soon enough. Clearly, Johnny boy has not learned his lesson! The footage ends with Daniel confronting his old foe in the dojo, stating, "Johnny, you and I, this, we aren't done".

According to Entertainment Weekly, which debuted the trailer, the cast will include Parenthood's Xolo Maridue├▒a as a bullied youngster who's mentored by Johnny, while Designated Survivor's Tanner Buchanan plays Johnny's son, who's fighting to escape his father's shadow. Will Smith's Sony Pictures Television Studios-based Overbrook Entertainment will exec produce with James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett overseeing for the company.
