Cobra Kai could recognize Jackie Chan and his Karate Kid as follows

Could Jackie Chan make a cameo in Cobra Kai? Although The Karate Kid (2010) is not part of the canon, there is a possibility of turning this dream into reality.

We are looking forward to seeing the new adventures of Daniel, Johnny and company in season 5 of Cobra Kai, which premieres on Netflix Spain on September 9. Will this plot of Karate Kid 3 be one of the subplots of the new season of the series?

For now we are waiting for what might happen… although we can’t get out of our minds what dojos the characters from The Office would be in, or what Kreese’s story will be in Cobra Kai season 5.

you already know that Cobra Kai canon recognizes not only the original three Karate Kid movies (released from 1984 to 1989), but also the fourth installment with Hilary Swank, which was released in 1994.

What about The Karate Kid? We are talking about reboot released in 2010which had Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan in the leading roles.

Cobra Kai canon does not include the film directed by Harald Zwart in 2010, because the legendary Mr. Miyagi does not appear on the tape. He mentored Daniel Larusso and Julie Pierce, but not Dre Parker.

This makes seeing a Jaden Smith or Jackie Chan cameo in Cobra Kai season 5 virtually impossible. Instead, we have seen Hilary Swank (The new Karate Kid) and other characters from the original trilogy.

However, we miss a detail. In Cobra Kai Season 1 Jackie Chan is mentioned (as a fighter and actor), which opens up a possible avenue to include the character of Mr. Han in the fifth season of Cobra Kai.

In fact, following this path one could even recognize The Karate Kid (2010) as part of the canon, though not literally.

In other words, the reboot of the year 2010 could be a movie within the Cobra Kai universewhich would serve as an inclusion of the film, its characters (as actors) and also as a nice tribute.

Jackie Chan could appear in Cobra Kai season 5 as a cameo, playing his own real person and not Mr. Han. This would be a delicious meta reference for fans, and one that would also respect Cobra Kai canon.

The other possibility would be too risky. Do you remember the three Spider-Man in No Way Home? well imagine if Daniel Larusso, Julie Pierce and Dre Parker come together to defeat the forces of evil. It would be amazing… that would affect the canon, yes.

Cobra Kai season 5 premieres next September 9 on Netflix Spain, continuing the events seen in December 2021. The Cobra Kai showrunner assures that there could be more seasons on the way, so we have a series for a while.
