Every season of ‘Cobra Kai ‘ brought back at least one or two essential characters from the franchise ‘Kid Kid‘ to help tell the story of Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) e Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka).
Between them, Kreese (Martin Kove), Ali Mills (Elisabeth Shue), Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith), Chozen (Yuji Okumoto) and a few others made appearances throughout the episodes.
And now fans are asking when Julie Pierce (Hilary Swank) will make its debut in ‘Cobra Kai ‘.
For those who don’t remember, Pierce was the star of the 4th ‘Kid Kid‘, becoming a student of Master Miyagi (Pat Morita), as well as Daniel.
During an interview with the Fandom, the co-creator and executive producer Jon Hurwitz was asked about the matter.
Despite making a mystery about the possibility, he lavished praise on the Swank and your character, which indicates a great sign.
“All we can say about Julie Pierce is that we love Hilary Swank. We think she’s a phenomenal actress and we love her character in this franchise. She was taught by Mr. Miyagi and she is someone who is important to the universe of ‘Kid Karate ‘. We can’t tell if she’ll come back… And if she does, we couldn’t tell how she would come back.”
“Maybe we talked about her, maybe not. We may or may not be able to work with her. The truth is, we can’t tell you anything! It will remain a mystery until she appears or until the series ends without her.”
This is not the first time the filmmaker has touched the subject… In 2020, he had already commented on the idea in an interview with Cinemabled.
At the time, he said that:
“From the beginning, we’ve always envisioned the series as a legacy of Miyagi’s lessons. Anything related to it can be introduced sooner or later. ‘Kid Kard 4‘ is part of this legacy… The chemistry between Morita e Swank is the best thing about the movie so it would be interesting to see how it would relate to Macchio and the others.”
Remembering that the 4th season is now available on Netflix.
