You may hear ‘sweep the leg’ a few times at this reunion. You can relive memories of the 1984 movie ‘The Karate Kid’ and meet actors who made it happen.
Ralph Macchio, William Zabka and Martin Kove from the original ‘The Karate Kid’ film will be available to meet. You know them as Daniel, our young hero who wants to learn self defense; Johnny, the student who has been taught ‘no mercy’; and Kreese, the demanding instructor who expects his students to win, no matter what. Sadly, the one truly missing will be Pat Morita, as we lost Mr. Miyagi in 2005.
The day you’ll get to see all three stars is Friday, May 20th. The trio also is in the streaming series ‘Cobra Kai’. Two actors from that spin-off series are also set to appear, Mary Mouser, who plays Samantha LaRusso, and Tanner Buchanan, who plays Robby Keene.
The event takes place in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center, the weekend of May 19-22, 2022. Megacon Orlando combines nearly every genre of entertainment. These actors from ‘The Karate Kid’ and ‘Cobra Kai’ will each be in attendance, but may be on different days of the event. Friday, May 20th is the date that their appearances each overlap.
