34 years after the original movie hit theaters, Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso still have a score to settle…
Put him in a body bag, Johnny! This YouTube Red Original Series premieres on May 2. The reboot stars Ralph Macchio AND William Zabka. Sadly, since we lost Pat Morita in 2005, there will be no Mr. Miyagi, but we’re willing to bet that they work in a few “Wax On, Wax Off” jokes.
Need an update on the plot for this series? OK! Here’s the basic idea:
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.
As if you needed any more inspiration, THE William “Don’t Call Me Billy” Zabka is telling you to get to the dojo!
