East-meets-West when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases the heartwarming coming-of-age films, The Karate Kid and The Karate Kid II both available on Blu-ray from 19th July 2010. These beloved stories are kicked into high gear when viewed in 1080p high definition, and are sure to sweep audiences off their feet in only the way The Karate Kid can.

Viewers will have the opportunity to master Karate Kid-related trivia based on both films with the exclusive Blu-Pop feature, a picture-in-picture which includes "pop- up" interviews and trivia, fun film facts, anecdotes from the actors and martial arts information. The Karate Kid Blu-Pop feature also contains brand new interviews with stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka!

Viewers can also reminisce via featurettes: "The Way of the Karate Kid", "Beyond the Form", and "Life of Bonsai" as well as commentary with Oscar winning director John G. Avildsen (Rocky), writer Robert Mark Kamen (The Fifth Element) and stars Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita on The Karate Kid. The Karate Kid II also includes a "sequel" featurette "The Sequel".

A fatherless teenager faces his moment of truth in The Karate Kid. Daniel (Ralph Macchio) arrives in Los Angeles from the east coast and faces the difficult task of making new friends. However, he becomes the object of bullying by the Cobra Kai, a menacing gang of karate students, when he strikes up a relationship with Ali (Elisabeth Shue), the Cobra Kai leader's ex-girlfriend.

Eager to fight back and impress his new girlfriend, but afraid to confront the dangerous gang, Daniel asks his handyman Miyagi (Noriyuki 'Pat' Morita), whom he learns is a master of the martial arts, to teach him karate. Miyagi teaches Daniel that karate is a mastery over the self, mind, and body and that fighting is always the last answer to a problem. Under Miyagi's guidance, Daniel develops not only physical skills but also the faith and self-confidence to compete despite tremendous odds as he encounters the fight of his life in the exciting finale to this entertaining film.
