It's probably going to tie in with Cobra Kai. The press release said "The return of the original Karate Kid franchise"

I'm guessing Hurwitz, Schlossberg and Heald pitched something.

Yes!! Bring on the legacy sequels! This is a no brainer - 40th anniversary, everyone still looks great, momentum from a successful show. Now, I do hope that this feels more like a film and less like Cobra Kai: The Movie, that'd be my only reservation.

I guess I donít really see much point in a new film when Cobra Kai has had five seasons and is still going.

Still waiting for the fight between Daniel and Julie about who Mr Miyagi loved more.

Bad idea, nobody is going to pay to see this. If the series was never made could make money with the return of Larusso, Johnny, Kreese,Chozen, Barnes, etc. However, probably for the best that they went the TV route as they could give all the characters more depth.

Re: Karate Kid 5 (2024) in development

Is the movie perhaps meant close out the series (and possibly leave the door open to continue the franchise with just the kids)? I would actually like a big screen sendoff to all the legacy characters.

None of the Cobra Kai creators have confirmed any involvement with this on their Twitter accounts yet. It’s most likely that deals are still being worked out on who will take this on.

Iím hopeful with a movie, they can do something bigger in scale, for example having the entire main cast go to Japan (and not just a quick trip for Daniel).

In fact, seeing Johnny in Japan and reacting to the culture would be worth the price of admission.

Re: Karate Kid 5 (2024) in development

Iíve always preferred when a franchise goes the TV series route, instead of a film. I want 8-10 hours of content, not a 2 hour film.

I saw an article on some (not particularly credible) website a month ago about another Karate Kid being in the works ... it didn't mention anything about the Cobra Kai creators being involved. It credited someone else. It doesn't seem like this has anything to do with Cobra Kai. The plot is about a kid who is the teacher now. And it once again is Kung Fu, not karate. And if that is the case... wtf is Sony thinking.

I don't want Cobra Kai: The Movie so I'm fine with it. Of course, they should follow the established storyline as much as they can, maybe bring in the best couple of actors from the series (and their really is only a few that are good imo) but there's a way to acknowledge the series but still work around it.

Re: Karate Kid 5 (2024) in development

I wonder if itís going to be another reboot then and not actually a sequel. That would make more sense probably.

Re: Karate Kid 5 (2024) in development

This is the plot I saw reported a month ago, before it was officially announced. I'd still keep this in the RUMOR category:

Sony is looking to cast a teen lead for a new Karate Kid film. Sony is looking for a 17-year-old male, Chinese actor who speaks both Mandarin and English. The character is referred to as Li and is said to be small for his age, but tough, smart and scrappy. He is said to be a skilled fighter and a student in Beijing who finds his life uprooted after his mother moves them to Brooklyn, New York.

Li is said to be struggling with a past tragedy, which drives a wedge between him and his doctor mom, who has managed to handle the same tragedy in her own way. After Li meets Mia, a student from his high school, and her father, Victor, at a local pizza restaurant, he’ll soon find his life has changed yet again – for the better. Li soon finds himself training Victor in the art of Kung Fu, despite his mother’s stance against violence and fighting, and ultimately back in the ring himself.

The film does not yet have a director attached, but Rob Lieber (Peter Rabbit) is attached to pen the script.

Sometimes... I'm so over this place and its stupidity.

Why not just cast the Chinese kid from the 2010 film and have his character Cheng be the one highlighted in the plot synopsis?

Re: Karate Kid 5 (2024) in development

If it's a young Miyagi prequel, then I want badass karate scenes like in Ip Man

*yes I know Ip Man uses wing chun, I specifically mean the karate scenes
