As kids, we all definitely saw The Karate Kid and we cannot forget the impact of that in our lives. We all wanted to be Karate champions after seeing that movie. That movie might have had an active role in showing what we are today. Even today the movie is an evergreen movie and no one would change the channel if that comes live. It still feels like that movie just released yesterday. After all these years the epic cast grew up and now it’s totally different and we wonder what they became.
Below we take a look at the cast of “The Karate Kid” grown up:
Jackie Chan as Mr. Han.
Jackie Chan suggested the ‘jacket routine’ which wasn’t in the initial script of The Karate Kid.
Jackie Chan’s life now.
Jackie Chan started singing again after 15 years of acting and released an album at the end of last year. He gave his voice for the Chinese version of Beauty and the Beast.
Taraji P Henson as Sherry Parker.
Keeping the association with the first film, the main change was that the story happens in China, rather than America. The combative techniques showed in the film is a type of kung fu, when the distinction unmistakably appears, where Dre’s mom marks the term as karate and Dre redresses it immediately.
What is she into now?
She’s now a successful actress starring in blockbusters like Hidden Figures (2016), Person of Interest (2011) and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008).
Jaden Smith as Dre.
Jaden trained for three months for his role in The Karate Kid.
