Jackie Chan And Ralph Macchio’s Karate Kid Movie Has Scored Its Young Lead, And I’m Hyped That A Promising Disney Vet Just Snagged The Role

Some may have already forgotten that the 2024 movie release schedule does indeed have a new Karate Kid film slated to be released. While that picture isn’t slated to be released until December, the merging of Ralph Macchio and Jackie Chan’s storylines in Sony’s famed cinematic IP has been watched with great interest. And now this mysterious project has landed what it needed most: our next Karate Kid; which I’m now hyped about, thanks to the casting of a promising Disney vet. 

According to reporting coming from THR, actor Ben Wang will be playing our unnamed mystery lead in the latest Karate Kid continuation. Wang was recently seen in the Disney+ subscription driver American Born Chinese, and in addition to having that credit on his resume, the young man apparently wowed the powers that be with an amazing audition reel.
