With Cobra Kai having introduced new generations of viewers to the ‘Karate Kid’ universe, it’s no surprise there’s another cinematic installment on the way.
Sony’s Columbia Pictures division revealed Friday that it has scheduled a new Karate Kid movie to hit theaters June 7, 2024.
Little is known about the production, which is simply described as “The return of the original Karate Kid franchise.” No word yet on the onscreen talent, filmmaking team, or plot details.
The original Karate Kid was released in 1984, starring Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita, Elisabeth Shue, and William Zabka. Three sequels and a 2010 reboot starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan followed.
Meanwhile, Cobra Kai recently unveiled its fifth season on Netflix, once again featuring Macchio and Zabka alongside new and returning stars.
