The Karate Kid -- 35th Anniversary Edition -- 4K UHD -- 4/16/19




From The Digital Bits:

We’ve got a nice bit of official 4K news to start the new week: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is releasing The Karate Kid on 4K in honor of the film’s 35th anniversary. Look for the disc to street on 4/16, following the film’s limited return to theaters across the US on 3/31 and 4/2.

The disc will feature the film remastered in native 4K from the original camera negative, along with a new Dolby Atmos audio mix (you will also get the original stereo and 5.1 mixes). In terms of extras, legacy content will include a “Blu-Pop” Pop-Up Track (with trivia, interviews, and more secrets from the film), audio commentary (with director John G. Avildsen, writer Robert Mark Kamen, and actors Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita), The Way of the Karate Kid multi-part featurette, 3 additional featurettes (Beyond the Form, East Meets West: A Composer’s Notebook, and Life of Bonsai) and the theatrical trailer (on the 4K disc). You’ll also get the all new Remembering The Karate Kid retrospective (featuring new interviews with Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, and Martin Kove – on the 4K disc).

I'm in for this. Loved this movie. Like that this 4K is getting a retrospective extra.

I'm definitely in for this. I wonder if that retrospective will be on the 4K disc only and not on digital.

That does make me chuckle....go physical or go home and cry at your digital collection.

Im still hoping for Cobra Kai to come out on bluray. I don't know if I'll buy it, but Id be interested in seeing it in theaters.

At least give it a digital release to streaming networks.

It is a digital release...on their network. If YouTube is going to keep making the show, they need people to subscribe / watch on their platform. They aren't going to give it to other people. Just pay the $10 and watch it. It is completely worth it.
