[ # ] Cobra Kai features never-before-seen footage from The Karate Kid!
May 1st, 2018 under Billy Zabka, Ralph Macchio, YouTube

Tomorrow on YouTube Red, The Karate Kid gets the sequel you never knew you needed and wanted. It has been almost 34 years since Johnny Lawrence (Billy Zabka) got his face kicked with an illegal kick (LBH we all know it was illegal) by Danny LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and now we are going to see how that moment changed both of their lives forever.

Since I have always liked both actors, it is nice to finally see Lawrence’s side of what happened. By doing so, the executive producers, Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, of Cobra Kai, needed to change up some of the scenes from the original for the series. They did so, by asking someone from Sony to go deep into the archival cave and find the raw video from the film. What they came back with was several seconds of never-before-seen footage from that fight scene and spliced it together for the show. According to them, not only did they use old shots, they added some new ones. Which, I am sure was easy for them to do because neither actor has aged a day since then. I wonder what they wax on, wax off on their faces to achieve the fountain of youth.

Anyways, I have seen the first two episodes and what I really enjoy is the way they incorporated moments from the feature into the webseries. It gives you flashbacks to their teen years without having to watch the movies all over again. Not that we don’t want to, we just cannot wait to watch these 10 episodes already. Which thankfully will all be coming out tomorrow. Guess what I will be doing all day? Cobra Kai truly took my breath away like a crane kick to the nose.
