Watch the Trailer for Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith's Karate Kid Reboot

Text

So, technically, in this remake of the 1984 classic, Jackie Chan’s Mr. Han teaches 12-year-old Dre (played by Will Smith’s son, Jaden) kung fu and not karate. We can sort of forgive the factual inaccuracy since the new version will bring the film’s uplifting, if wholly unrealistic, message to a whole new generation of youngsters. Taraji P. Henson also stars as Dre’s mom. The Karate Kid hits theaters June 11. Thanks to Vulture for the tip on this trailer, which you can watch below:
