First Look! Watch Will Smith’s Son Jaden in His First Starring Role in the 'Karate Kid'

Aren’t you stoked to see Will’s Mini-Me take on Hollywood?

We grew up with Mr. Miyagi‘s voice in our heads repeating “wax on, wax off,” but now it’s a new generation’s turn to learn some life lessons from the masters. But instead of Mr. Miyagi, our new sensai is Mr. Han, played by Jackie Chan (who we still kind of think looks like Jackie Chan playing Jackie Chan).

11-year-old Jaden’s character, Dre, moves to Beijing, China with his mom (played by Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson) and gets picked on by schoolchildren because he just doesn’t belong. Cue Jackie/Han, who teaches Dre about acceptance, standing up for himself and being a fighter, not a lover.

We love a good underdog movie! Are you stoked to see Jaden become the next big action star, just like his good old dad?

I wish he was little bit older. But remakes wait for no one! The kid has baby abs at 1:35. Reminds me of a four year old body builder. Aside from that and Jackie Chan’s porn stache it looks surprisingly good!
