Much like the original film, New Zealand was the location of much of the filming. The series will premiere its first episode on September 2nd and release a new episode every week. The series stars Nazanin Boniadi, Benjamin Walker, Morfydd Clark, and many more.
Synopsis via Amazon Studios:
This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
One of the things that makes ‘Cobra Kai’ such a unique and enjoyable watch is the ‘gray area’ surrounding the development of the main characters. In other words, there is no clear-cut ‘good’ or ‘evil.’ Co-Senseis Pamela Michelle and Mike D’Abate examine the characters in this third installment of the pod.
Hosts Pamela Michelle and Mike D’Abate are back to discuss Cobra Kai’s cast of students and their relationships with the legacy characters of Johnny and Daniel. Hear the co-senseis’ thoughts on Miguel, Robby, Hawk, Sam, Tory and others.
The doors of the dojo are now open in this inaugural episode. Join hosts Pamela Michelle and Mike D’Abate for a journey to the Valley, as the duo discuss the popularity and appeal of the Netflix-mega-hit Cobra Kai.
