‘Cobra Kai’ trailer is the ‘Karate Kid’ sequel you didn’t know you needed

Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are at it again.

Both stars from The Karate Kid are back in a new trailer for Cobra Kai, the upcoming YouTube Red series that’s poised to make “How do I get YouTube Red?” a trending search term.

Much of the trailer focuses on Zabka’s Johnny Lawrence, the one-dimensional Karate Kid antagonist who got his face got kicked in by Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso at the movie’s climax. Johnny fell on some hard times in the years after his teenage showdown, but now he’s out to get back on track, starting with reopening his old Cobra Kai dojo.

LaRusso, meanwhile, is all grown up and working as a car salesman. He has his own struggles now that his sensei and mentor, Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) is gone, and he clearly isn’t a fan of his old nemesis reopening the dojo that caused him so much trouble when he was younger.

Cobra Kai comes to YouTube Red on May 2. Hopefully it’s as amazing as this trailer suggests.
