Following Cobra Kai’s Success, A New Karate Kid Movie Is On The Way

ytsfreeSeptember 16, 2022

Although a remake of The Karate Kid starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan was released in 2010, the original incarnation of the franchise hasn’t had a theatrical presence since 1994’s The Next Karate Kid. However, that universe has been getting a lot of attention in recent years through Cobra Kai, the show that originally premiered on YouTube and is now available to stream with a Netflix subscription. The entirety of Cobra Kai Season 5 dropped on September 9, and while there’s no official word yet on if Season 6 is happening, it’s been announced that a new Karate Kid movie is on the way.

Sony Pictures announced this news as part of some studio scheduling updates, with the new Karate Kid movie slated to arrive on June 7, 2024. The only other piece of information revealed about the project is that it’s “the return of the original Karate Kid franchise,” indicating that rather than being another remake/reboot, this will be set in the same continuity as the original Karate Kid movies and Cobra Kai. That June 7 date previously belonged to an Untitled Sony/Marvel Universe flick, which has now been moved to July 12.
