"Karate Kid" fans are already being hit with plenty of nostalgia these days, thanks to the Netflix series "Cobra Kai."

Now, they're in for a bigger treat with a new documentary about Pat Morita on the way.

The first trailer for "More Than Miyagi: The Pat Morita Story" was released this week, and it gives fans a never-before-seen look at the actor famous for playing Mr. Miyagi in the beloved 1980s film series.

The new documentary features stories from Pat Morita’s career, including discussion about his most iconic character. "Karate Kid" star Ralph Macchio is featured, along with William Zabka, Henry Winkler, Marion Ross, Tommy Chong, Larry Miller, Esai Morales and more, according to Yahoo.

The documentary was inspired by a manuscript written by Morita about his life.

"There [were] some really dark things. I would say the manuscript was the blueprint of everything and that's what got us excited, especially because he had talked about his early years and that's the stuff that you don't know, pre-Mr. Miyagi," said producer Oscar Alvarez.

The documentary is available to stream on Apple+ on February 5.
