The karate kid The series brings out a fair amount of nostalgia for those of a certain age, and when the spin-off series finds a new home on Netflix, it will be even easier for fans of the original films to keep up with the franchise.
Cobra Kai, that’s kind of a continuation of the Karate kid Movies that previously aired on YouTube but were acquired by Netflix before the third season released this year.
William Zabka, who played Johnny Lawrence in the original 1984 film and repeats his role on the series, said it was “amazing” to reconnect with the character.
“It was an amazing reconnection,” he told the New York Post.
“The Karate Kid has been a huge part of my life and giving all along [Johnny] more dimension and humanity was exciting.
“Johnny is the exact opposite of who I really am. But in the ending scene from The karate kid Film if he gives Danny the trophy … I thought he actually has a really good core. “
Zabka stated that Johnny had a difficult start in life but was “on his way to his own version of salvation” in the Cobra Kai Series.
“He’s trying to figure things out and sort out his past and change and grow. That’s so amazing to me what the writers have done with the character.”
He adds, “As an actor, it’s so satisfying to play someone who’s not all good or bad.”
Cobra Kai follows rivals Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence from the original film, who now, now that they are adults, are following very different paths in life.
Having gotten into tough times, Johnny decides to open his own dojo, Cobra Kai, to teach karate to a group of bullied teenagers.
Meanwhile, Daniel has become a successful car salesman and committed family man, but he’s beginning to find his way back into the martial arts world by reconnecting with the spirit of his sensei from the movies, Nariyoshi Miyagi (Pat Morita).
Cobra Kai Seasons 1 and 2 can now be streamed on Netflix, with season 3 following in 2021.
