Ralph And Jackie Chan Working On A New Karate Kid Movie

There is a new Karate Kid movie in the works, and it is a big deal because it brings back Ralph, who is from the original Karate Kid movies, and Jackie Chan, who is from the 2010 Karate Kid reboot. 

They are looking for a new teenage star for the movie. 

This character is called Li Fong, who is an innovative and skilled martial artist who is mixed-race Chinese aged between 15 and 17 and speaks fluent English

This movie will bring together different storylines from the Karate Kid series. 

The original series with Ralph, the 2010 reboot with Jackie, and the recent Cobra Kai series.

This movie blends old and new, combining various elements from the Karate Kid series. 

Ralph Defends Karate Kid Against Criticism

Some criticized the 1984 Karate Kid movie, saying it was too focused on a White cast and didn’t explore Japanese cultural aspects enough. 

Ralph argued that the movie was ahead of its time. 

He acknowledged the criticism but pointed out that the film touched on the topic of Japanese internment camps during World War II, which was not common in mainstream movies at that time. 

Ralph explained that a crucial scene where co-star Pat Morita’s character Mr. Miyagi revealed he lost his wife and son in one of the camps earned Morita an Academy Awards nomination

Morita spent two years in such camps, giving the scene added depth and meaning. 

Ralph repealed that the powerful scene was almost cut from the film due to concerns about its length. 

However, it was saved by its impact on the audience during a screening.
