Cobra Kai In The Media

Recommended Posts


In Netflix’s ‘Cobra Kai,’ Seattle restaurateur Yuji Okumoto reprises a role — and a life — he thought he’d left behind

On trying to get a recent movie made:

“And we all collectively hooped and hollered,” Okumoto said. “But then their ask was kind of ridiculous. They said, ‘OK, we’ll give you $4 million to shoot this film. But we’re not crazy about the lead Asian characters and stuff like that. So, we’re wondering would you be open to having white actors play the leads?’ It was pretty much a gut punch. They said, ‘How about Bruce Willis?’ ”

I like how they list all the guests alphabetically, that's why the Cobra Kai guys are all over that and not one after the other. Also, Bob Morley and Eliza Taylor are married but are also in different places, lol.

Quote from the article: “I think after all these years, after suffering that humiliating defeat in front of the whole village, I think Chozen’s sole purpose in life is to find redemption and get back his honor,” Okumoto said. “So I think he’s been probably plotting all these years to seek revenge.

“I don’t think he’s going to find his enlightenment any time soon.”

So ... this seems to be pretty much the opposite of what played out with Chozen, was Okumoto just misdirecting?

Quote

Young will recur as Kenny, a bullied new kid in school who turns to karate as a way to defend himself. O’Brien will play Devon, a potential new karate student who is relentlessly competitive, a quick study, and equally quick-tempered when she’s provoked.

I really kind of wonder if the actress who played Aisha shot herself in the foot when she e-begged and complained about being written out of the show. Since it seems like the show is getting a bigger budget and expanded cast, you'd think they'd announce Aisha coming back. Maybe it'll be a surprise? I'm cynical enough to think that Aisha's e-begging and complaining turned off the Powers that Be at Cobra Kai. I hope I'm wrong.

I hope that they bring her back also. She was the only character that was friends with kids from both dojos and it would be interesting to see where her loyalties would lie between her friendship with Tory vs Sam, Miguel and Hawk. I did see that the creators ( or producers? I don't know ) were questioned about writing her out and they said that they told her what they told the actor that played Kyler when they decided that they didn't need him in season 2. They said that they didn't need her for that season but it didn't mean that they had written her character out of the show. Since they brought Kyler back after they told him that I'm hoping that they bring her back too.
