EP90 | The Karate Kid Franchise Sequel | SequelQuest
When The Karate Kid was released in 1984, it not only kickstarted a film franchise that gave us the adventures of Daniel Larusso and the wisdom of Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi, it created a martial arts phenomenon that swept the nation (and a leg or two along the way). Three official sequels to The Karate Kid were produced between 1986 and 1994 with The Next Karate Kid trading Ralph Macchio for Hillary Swank to diminishing returns. The critically acclaimed web series, Cobra Kai recently gave us a glimpse of the world of The Karate Kid in the 21st century, but what if we had gotten a 4th theatrical film in the 90s?
That’s the mission of your SequelQuest crew of Adam, Jeff and Jeramy in this episode of the podcast. Returning after a 2 month hiatus, your hosts have been working on their crane kicks and drum techniques to get in peak movie pitching form. What could the plot of The Karate Kid Part 4 possibly be? Maybe a touching tale of long lost Miyagi relatives? Perhaps an early prediction for a possible storyline in Cobra Kai season 2? There might even be a mash-up film that brings all your movie martial arts characters like the 3 Ninjas and Surf Ninjas into a wild post-apocalyptic gang war flick if you’re lucky.
So listen now to the return of SequelQuest and you’ll be reminded why when it come to fake movie fun, SequelQuest is the best around!
