New Karate Kid movie coming as if Cobra Kai didnt

Season 5 Cobra Kai is also a huge hit on Netflix. The series sequel to the cult series Karate Kid is considered by many fans to be a shining example of a successful, creative sequel. It is therefore all the more frustrating that the newly announced Karate Kid film apparently does not suggest any connection to the series.

The cast and plot of the newly announced Karate Kid film are not yet known (via Variety). A dramaturgical bridge to the Netflix series was therefore obvious for many fans. Some will be upset at the lack of reference. Cobra Kai at least preserves the Karate Kid legacy in viewers’ collective memory. And would be largely responsible for the success of a future film.

When is the new Karate Kid movie coming out?

After all, the release date of the new cinema adventure is already known. It is slated to hit US theaters on June 7, 2024. In Germany, a theatrical release is expected on June 6th.
