From movie to TV present … and now again to a movie again.
In saying a collection of adjustments to their upcoming launch calendar, Sony added a shocking title to their roster of flicks in growth: A new film in The Karate Kid collection, which they described because the “return of the original Karate Kid franchise.” The film is scheduled to open in theaters on June 7, 2024.
The news is especially sudden as a result of the unique Karate Kid franchise has discovered new life on Netflix as Cobra Kai, a TV collection that continues the story of the previous trilogy of flicks about plucky underdog karate champ Daniel LaRusso some 30 years after the occasions of the previous movies. Decades later, Daniel is now a rich businessman and his previous karate rival and bully, Johnny Lawrence, is a washed-up loser who restarts the Cobra Kai dojo to get some function again in his life. The collection’ fifth season lately premiered on Netflix.
Thus far, Netflix has not formally introduced a sixth season of the present, and this news may have one thing to do with it. Sony’s announcement didn’t point out any filmmakers or stars, or present an in depth synopsis, however calling it the return of the unique Karate Kid franchise would have to imply Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, and various other characters from the Cobra Kai collection. (Unless it’s a reboot of the idea with a brand new forged?) Cobra Kai does appear headed towards a giant finale; it’s doable a Karate Kid movie may conclude the entire present’s numerous storylines.
If it happens, it will be the sixth film within the franchise, following three Karate Kids with Macchio and Pat Morita as his karate instructor, Mr. Miyagi. After Macchio aged out of the franchise, Morita then made The Next Karate Kid, which starred a younger Hilary Swank as his new pupil. A few years later, there was a reboot that starred Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan within the role of the older martial arts grasp. The first season of Cobra Kai adopted in 2018. (Morita passed away 2005, however Mr. Miyagi is referenced always on the present.)
