Cobra Kai teaser trailer reignites the Karate Kid rivalry for sequel series

Cobra Kai teaser trailer reignites the Karate Kid rivalry for sequel series

"Cobra Kai" will begin later this year on YouTube Red, the video website's premium subscription service.

Johnny Lawrence has not been seen on screen since the opening scene of The Karate Kid Part II, when Daniel's teacher Mr. Miyagi saved him from a beating by Kreese as punishment for losing to Daniel.

On Thursday, Entertainment Weekly revealed the first teaser for the "Karate Kid" sequel series and it looks like Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) have not spent the last three decades resolving their issues. This isn't the first time that Zabka and Macchio have crossed paths since The Karate Kid. The return of Cobra Kai awakens old feelings in both of them, feelings that are most likely escalated by Daniel's daughter dating a bully named Kyler - who is much like Johnny used to be - and Johnny trying to teach a student being bullied by Kyler, mirroring Daniel.

But that rivalry will be revisited now in Cobra Kai.

Minnie Driver quits as Oxfam ambassador over charity sex scandal
Oxfam deputy chief Penny Lawrence resigned taking "full responsibility" for the behaviour of the British charitys staff in Haiti . Delahanty said in an interview.

The teaser shows off a dramatic montage of trophies, scenic training and finally the new Cobra Kai dojo, where the titular rivals once again meet face-to-face, albeit in senior citizens guise. Meeting in old familiar settings and in the middle of the matt Daniel boldly says to "Johnny, you and I, this... we aren't done". And we just have to ask which are you, Team Daniel or Team Johnny? Now, Daniel's a successful businessman and Johnny's a bit of a loser who's living in the past instead of moving on.

The reboot of the "Karate Kid" franchise starred Jackie Chan, Jaden Smith and Taraji P. Henson. Not exactly the most compassionate of life lessons. Johnny, however, has fallen on hard times.

Cobra Kai also stars Xolo Maridueña (Parenthood), Tanner Buchanan (Designated Survivor), Courtney Henggeler (Mom) and Mary Mouser (Freakish).
