First COBRA KAI Teaser Hints At a KARATE KID Rematch

First COBRA KAI Teaser Hints At a KARATE KID Rematch

"I just don't know why you'd ever want to bring back Cobra Kai", asks Ralph Macchio, the Karate Kid himself, in this first-look teaser for the YouTube Red original series Cobra Kai.

Are you looking forward to seeing Johnny and Daniel resume their rivalry?

Press PLAY above for a sneak peek at Cobra Kai, then hit the comments with your first impressions.

Cobra Kai will arrive with 10 episodes on YouTube Red in 2018.

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.

Why the Millennium Falcon Looks Different in Solo
For Han, some aspects of his Solo outfit are rather familiar, while others we're seeing for the first time. These new images also provide us with our best look yet at the Imperial Range trooper yet.

Daniel and Johnny are nursing old wounds with the ferocity only middle-aged men with too much time on their hands can foster. They met again on screen two years later with The Karate Kid Part II, and now Johnny is seeking redemption. Cobra Kai still doesn't have a premiere date; the teaser will only say it's "coming soon". We also see memories of the past, including newspaper clippings of LaRusso's stunning upset in the All-Valley Karate Tournament, Lawrence on a Cobra Kai flyer encouraging sign-ups, and young men and women undergoing karate training.

No word if Johnny's former sensei John Kreese (Martin Kove) or Ali (Elisabeth Shue), Daniel's ex-girlfriend, will return, though we can only hope. According to EW fans can also look forward to seeing stars including Xolo Maridueña, Tanner Buchanan, Robby Keene, Ed Asner as Johnny's old-school stepfather, Sid Weinberg. Josh Heald (Hot Tub Time Machine) and Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold and Kumar) will write and executive produce Cobra Kai.

As for Daniel's family, Courtney Henggeler (Mom) will play his wife and business partner Amanda, and Mary Mouser (Freakish) plays their daughter, Samantha, who is described as a firecracker.

This is not the first attempt to restart the Cobra Kai school.
