The Karate Kid of Miller Place, Ralph Macchio, is back with Cobra Kai


Miller Place’s resident movie star Ralph Macchio of Karate Kid and My Cousin Vinnie fame is back in a big way.

Macchio stars in the upcoming and much-anticipated You Tube Red show “Cobra Kai” airing May 2.

The trailer (watch above) was released last year and had Karate Kid buffs atwitter.

“Originally touted as a comedy series penned by the team behind Hot Tub Time Machine, the show now looks a little more serious,” wrote James Dator for SBNation.Com. “It’s still a decidedly more goofy look at the rivalry between Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, but so far the show looks kind of good.”

“This is one of those things you’re either totally in for, or not,” he continued. “I, for one, am absolutely down to see anything set in The Karate Kid universe. It’s been long enough.”

The show is described as such on IMDb:

“Set thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, the series focuses on Johnny Lawrence reopening the Cobra Kai dojo, which causes his rivalry with Daniel LaRusso to be reignited.”
