We’re ready to move on as Sony has announced a new movie set in the karate kid franchise.
The franchise hasn’t seen a new movie since the 2010 reboot starring Jackie Chan and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s son, Jaden Smith. However, that does not mean that the karate kid franchise has been dormant all this time, as the successful cobra kai The series has just released its fifth season on Netflix. According to VarietySony announced that it was making the movie by updating its movie slate, with a new karate kid film scheduled for June 7, 2024.
It is not clear what the plot of the film will be and if it will be a continuation of the stories that appear in cobra kai or a reboot of the original film. For all we know, Sony could bring Chan and Smith back for the movie and make it a sequel to the 2010 reboot, or even tie the many stories of the Karate Kid Universe together in some way with Ralph Macchio and Smith appearing in the same movie. . . Sony has described the film as the “return of the original”. karate kid franchise,” which could hint that Macchio’s journey as Daniel LaRusso is far from over.
It would seem strange not to capitalize on the success of cobra kai and get those characters a bigger budget for a movie. But again, it’s yet to be announced if this will be the case or if Sony will opt to start from scratch with a reboot. Since the movie is set to be released in 2024, production is sure to start soon, so we should get an idea of what that will entail sooner rather than later. Let’s hope the movie doesn’t interfere with the awesomeness of cobra kai as they seem to be having a very good run.
Sony not only announced a new karate kid film without altering its schedule, as two other Sony films have been delayed. Surprising no one they are kraven the hunter Y lady web. kraven the hunter now has a release date of October 6, 2023, moving from January 13, 2023. While lady web now has a release date of February 16, 2024, moving from October 6, 2023. This could be due to Morbius, the other movie in your underperforming Sony Spider-Verse, or it could have to do with production issues or reshoots. Interestingly, another movie set in that world has been scheduled for 2024. This could be poison 3 or could it be something else, maybe a new Spiderman movie.
The five seasons of cobra kai are available to stream on Netflix, while a new karate kid The film is scheduled to be released on June 7, 2024.
