The first installment of the popular remake stars Will Smith’s son, Jaden Smith, as Dre, a young boy from Detroit who moves to China with his Mom and incurs the wrath of the neighborhood bully. He makes an ally in the form of his aging maintenance man, Mr. Han (played by Jackie Chan), a Kung-Fu master who shows him the secrets of self defense.
Since 2010’s Karate Kid closely mirrors the plot of the 1984 original, it is likely that its sequel will also follow a similar storyline as 1986’s Karate Kid II. If that is the case, expect the second Karate Kid Film to begin where the first left off (spoiler alert!) – just after Dre defeats his rival Cheng in a Kung-Fu tournament. Also look for Karate Kid II to reveal much more details about the life of Mr. Han as he continues to teach Dre important life lessons.
Surely the studio will have another blockbuster on their hands.
