19 Biggest Story Reveals & Secrets

The new Fast and Furious 9 trailer is finally here, and it’s loaded with action, family, and big story reveals for what’s to come. The film stars an ensemble cast composed of series regulars like Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Sung Kang, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, and Nathalie Emmanuel, along with newcomer John Cena. After extensive delays, F9: The Fast Saga is finally nearing its release on July 8, 2021.

What started as a simple street racing story has grown into one of the bombastic action franchises in history, and F9 looks like it will be continuing the series’ escalation of absurdity in fun new ways. Charlize Theron’s Cipher will return as the primary antagonist, this time aided by Dom and Mia Toretto’s estranged brother Jakob (Cena). Sung Kang’s Han is also returning from the dead in a move that’s been widely celebrated by fans.

F9’s new trailer is full of familiar faces, absurd action sequences, plot twists, and of course, Coronas. The family feud between Dom and Jakob takes centerstage, and it sounds like there’s a lot of untold history between the two that should be interesting to discover. Here are the biggest reveals from the Fast and Furious 9 trailer.

The Toretto House Is Being Rebuilt

Deckard Shaw blew up the Toretto house in Furious 7, but the first shot of the F9 trailer shows that it’s being rebuilt. It’s a great way to start the trailer because the backyard barbecues Dom and Mia would host have always been the heart of the franchise, and it’s nice to see those scenes come back. Since the Toretto family’s history is at the heart of F9 with the introduction of Jakob, bringing it all back to the family home is particularly meaningful this time around. A scene where Jakob returns to the house, whether as a villain or a redeemed hero, would be really impactful. Furthermore, Brian’s blue Skyline is in the same shot, which is curious since the car exploded in 2009’s Fast & Furious, unless this is a different version.

The Tokyo Drift Crew Is Part Of The Fast Family

The backyard barbecue scene also reveals that the Tokyo Drift crew has officially been made part of the Fast family. Previous trailer footage revealed that Sean Boswell (Lucas Black) and Earl (Jason Tobin) would be coming back, and the new trailer shows both of them alongside Twinkie (Bow Wow) at the Toretto house, sipping on Coronas. While it’s a shame that Nathalie Kelley’s Nella isn’t back, it’s nice to see most of the Tokyo Drift crew being properly admitted into the family. Though they don’t appear much in the actual action of the trailer, it seems like they’ll still have a notable role in the story.

Brian Is Still Out Of The Picture

An early shot in the F9 trailer shows Dom watching a home video of Brian playing with his son on the beach. Brian was effectively written out of the series at the end of Furious 7 after Paul Walker’s death, but the return of Mia in F9 could make that situation a little more complicated. In the end though, the fans understand why Brian is gone, and it shouldn’t be that hard to explain him out of the new movie while still paying respect to what Walker brought to the franchise.

Dom And Letty Haven’t Seen The Others For A While

The first Fast and Furious 9 trailer showed Dom, Letty, and their son Brian in what appeared to be a new home. The new trailer shows a bit more of their current living situation, revealing in a line from Roman (Gibson) that they’re pretty far-removed from the rest of the crew, at least geographically. It also seems that Dom and Letty haven’t seen the rest of the family in a while. Perhaps Dom and Letty are waiting for the old house to be fully rebuilt before moving back, or maybe Mia is the one leading the charge on the reconstruction.

F9 Has A Lot Of Magnets

A number of different bonkers action sequences are glimpsed in the F9 trailer, and most of them have something to do with…magnets? Cipher seems to be all about magnets now, using for everything from destroying cities to making cars fly. It looks like the Fast fam will get there hands on some of that advanced technology to fight back against Cipher in the end, which could create some wild and incredibly exciting chase scenes. Fast and Furious is always looking for ways to up the ante on its action, and F9 is no different.

Dom Turned His Back On His Brother
Fast and Furious 9 Jakob Toretto John Cena

Family is at the core of the Fast and Furious franchise, and Jakob Toretto says a few things in the trailer suggesting that Dom isn’t quite as perfect in that area as previously thought. At one point, Jakob accuses Dom of turning his back on him. He also talks about how he was always in Dom’s shadow growing up, being the little brother. It’s likely that Dom and Jakob became estranged after the death of their father, especially since Dom’s subsequent assault on the man responsible landed him in jail. That time in prison may have been the final wedge between the two, though it will also be interesting to see how Mia fits into their dynamic. Whatever the details are, Dom definitely has some skeletons in his closet that he’ll have to contend with in F9.

Jakob Toretto Has His Own Cross Necklace
Jakob and Dom point their guns at each other in F9

Dom’s cross necklace has become one of the Fast franchise’s signature symbols, and in the new F9 trailer, his brother Jakob is wearing one of his own. The implication is that the necklaces have something to do with their childhood – possibly gifts from their father – and that they could get some more thorough backstory in F9. Vin Diesel’s son will be playing a young Dom in the movie, which means there will be at least some flashback scenes to when he, Jakob and Mia were all kids. Could fans finally see Dom’s father on screen?

Dom Has A Classic Fast & Furious Weapon

Dominic Toretto doesn’t mess around when you come after his family – even if you are his family. The F9 trailer includes a shot of Dom taking aim with an old-school pump-action shotgun, harkening back to his use of the weapon in the very first film. The series has gotten so ridiculous over the years that ordinary guns don’t seem all that intimidating, but it’s a cool moment for fans to get a glimpse at the old Dom.

Jakob Has A Private Army

Mia says it herself at one point in the trailer – Jakob Toretto has a private army. The Fast crew has faced off with some truly powerful foes in the past, but Jakob’s force of elite soldiers could be the most dangerous opponents yet. Accordingly, the crew seems to have no problem killing bad guys in self-defense, and a lot of random henchmen get shot, tossed out of cars, and blown up in the new trailer.

The Crew Finds Han In Tokyo

Han’s resurrection still hasn’t been explained, but the new trailer does show how he reunites with the Fast family. During an action sequence in what appears to be Tokyo, Letty and other members of the crew are attacked, only to be saved by Han. If the city in the trailer is indeed Tokyo, that could mean Han has been hiding out there since his “death” in Tokyo Drift. With so many other Tokyo Drift characters also returning in Fast and Furious 9, it could be that they had something to do with his survival, intentionally or unintentionally. Either way, it should be fun to see Han reunite with Sean, Twinkie and Earl.

Mia Is Fully Back In Action

After an unfortunate absence in The Fate of the Furious, Jordana Brewster is back as Mia Toretto, and the new trailer shows her back in action with the rest of the family. Mia didn’t get to do as much in her last few F&F movies, but it looks like F9 will fix that in a big way. With the Toretto family’s past at the center of the new story, that makes a lot of sense, and it should be interesting to see how Mia and Jakob feel about each other after so many years.

Ramsey Learns To Drive

Resident hacker and tech specialist Ramsey (Emmanuel) hasn’t been behind the wheel much in past Fast and Furious films, but it looks like that’s going to change in F9. One scene in the trailer shows her hopping into a truck to join the action, joking at her own lack of skill combined to the rest of the crew. Ramsey has been a great addition to the family and has helped out hugely with her technical savvy, so it’s fun to see her getting in on some of the automotive action as well.

Magdalene Shaw Is Working With Dom

Neither Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) nor his brother Deckard (Jason Statham) have been confirmed for F9, but their mother Magdalene (Helen Mirren) is fully in the fray. In fact, it looks like she’s teaming up directly with Dom. The Shaws became hesitant allies to the Fast crew in The Fate of the Furious, so it’s not entirely surprising to see Dom and Magdalene on the same side. The actual reason why she’d hop back into a car to help him out, however, is unclear. Whatever her motivation, it’s great to see her behind the wheel.

The Cops Are After The Crew Again
Fast and Furious 9 Police Cars

After a few films on the right side of the law, the crew is back to smashing up cop cars in Fast and Furious 9. Kurt Russell’s Mr. Nobody character from the past two films, who recruited Dom and his team as secret government operatives, doesn’t seem to be in the new movie. That means the crew is operating solely on their own volition this time, which will inevitably bring them up against the police in one chase or another. Whether or not that conflict will have any lasting ramifications remains to be seen.

Dom Has A New Super-Charged Charger
Fast and Furious 9 New Charger Magnets

Dom’s iconic black Charger is back in its latest of many different iterations, and this newest one might be the craziest yet. The magnet technology that seems to be ubiquitous in Fast and Furious 9 has apparently been integrated into the Charger as well, turning the muscle car into a sort of bomb on wheels. The trailer shows the Charger pulling in and blowing away other cars and all manner of metal objects in a truly ludicrous display.

Han’s iconic orange and black Mazda RX-7 sadly isn’t being resurrected along with its driver, but his new car is a great homage. Revealed in previous trailer footage, Han’s new Toyota Supra has the same paint scheme as his Tokyo Drift ride, and the trailer hints that it may be tricked out with some of F9’s new magnet tech. Han himself also seems like he’s spent his time away leveling up, as the trailer shows him brutally ice a number of bad guys with guns, hand-to-hand comment, and in one instance, kicking a man out of the back of a moving truck with a bomb strapped to him.

F9 Is An International Adventure
Fast and Furious 9 Han Car Dom Charger

The numerous action sequences in the F9 trailer show a globetrotting adventure akin to the past few Fast and Furious films. Since Cipher is basically a Bond villain at this point, she could have a reason to be any number of places, and as long as Jakob is working for her, that’s where Dom will be too. The franchise has done a great job in the past of creating fresh action set pieces in exciting locations, and that trend is alive and well in F9.

Cipher Is Still The Main Villain

Though the core of the F9 story revolves around Dom, Jakob, and Mia, Cipher is still clearly the one pulling the strings. It’s highly likely that Jakob will be redeemed over the course of the film and join up the Fast family against Cipher, so it makes sense to keep her as the primary antagonist. With at least two more core Fast and Furious films on the horizon, Cipher could stick around even longer, or her story could wrap up at the end of F9.

F9 Has Flying Cars

As has been theorized, Fast and Furious 9 may be going to space. The final shot of the trailer shows Roman and Tej donning what appears to be makeshift astronaut suits in a rocket-powered flying car. They are then dropped from the plane carrying the car and hit the “gas,” appearing to fly. Fans have joked for years about the Fast and Furious series going to space, and it looks like F9 will at the very least get the crew one step closer. And it’s possible the idea came from Dom’s son, who’s seen playing with a toy and space shuttle at the start of the trailer.

Fast & Furious 11 Needs Hobbs Vs. Dom (To End The Rock & Vin Diesel’s Feud)


Fast and Furious 11 needs to feature an epic fight between The Rock and Vin Diesel to resolve the real-life feud and bring closure to their characters’ relationship. The clash between Dom and Hobbs in Fast Five was a game-changer, and revisiting that epic confrontation in Fast 11 would elevate the action and add nostalgia. A showdown between Dom and Hobbs in Fast 11 could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation, reaffirming the underlying themes of family and unity in the franchise.

Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has returned to the Fast Saga, Fast and Furious 11 needs to include an epic fight between Johnson and Vin Diesel. In the high-octane world of the Fast and Furious franchise, the thrill of fast cars and heart-stopping action has always been amplified by the magnetic on-screen chemistry between its stars. However, a real-life feud between The Rock and Vin Diesel has been brewing since 2016. Director Louis Leterrier achieved the impossible by bringing The Rock back into the fold. Now, he must find a way to reunite Luke Hobbs and Dominic Toretto on-screen.

Ever since Fate of the Furious, the void left by The Rock’s absence has grown more conspicuous. The actor’s feud with Vin Diesel has cast a shadow over the franchise, making it increasingly difficult for the writers and directors to craft a cohesive narrative. As Fast Saga fans await the next installment, all eyes are on Leterrier to weave a compelling story that not only showcases jaw-dropping action but also offers a chance for Hobbs and Dom to partake in an epic showdown.

Hobbs & Dom Fighting In Fast & Furious 11 Would Bring Their Arc Full Circle

Fast X and Fast and Furious 11 act as sequels to Fast Five in many ways, so it makes perfect sense for the upcoming installment to build on the fight scene between Dom and Hobbs from Fast Five. The clash between the two powerhouse characters left an indelible mark on fans. Revisiting that epic confrontation could elevate the adrenaline-fueled action and add a layer of nostalgia to Fast and Furious 11. Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had a change of heart and returned to the Fast Saga, the anticipation for a rematch between his and Vin Diesel’s characters has reached a fever pitch.

Dom and Hobbs’ showdown in Fast Five was a game-changer for the franchise, propelling it to new heights with its intensity and raw energy. Given the unresolved tension between the two stars in real life, a meticulously crafted fight scene in Fast 11 has the potential to invigorate the climax of the series and provide a cathartic experience for the actors and fans alike. As Fast 11 may be the final chapter in the Fast and Furious universe, all eyes are on this anticipated clash. Hopefully, a brotherly fight will be the defining moment that brings harmony back to the Fast Saga family.

The Rock & Vin Diesel Can Put Their Feud To Rest On Screen

Vin Diesel and The Rock’s personal history adds a layer of complexity to any potential fight between their characters in Fast and Furious 11. Given their real-life feud, it’s unlikely either actor would be portrayed as the clear winner or loser. Moreover, from a storytelling perspective, it would be counterproductive to have Dom excessively harm or kill Hobbs or vice versa. However, as the series approaches its potential end, a showdown between Dom and Hobbs could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation. After all, throughout the Fast and Furious films, audiences have witnessed a recurring pattern of men engaging in physical conflicts before eventually forming unbreakable bonds.

For instance, Fast and Furious sees Dom and Brian’s tumultuous relationship evolve into a deep brotherly connection after a series of knock-down, drag-out fights. This same sort of understanding between Dom and Hobbs would reaffirm the underlying themes of reconciliation and family that have contributed to the franchise’s enduring popularity. By embracing the notion that they are, in a sense, brothers, Dom and Hobbs could mend their on-screen relationship and deliver a broader message of unity. This would ultimately give fans a satisfying conclusion to their relationship in Fast and Furious 11.

Vin Diesel Posts Paul Walker Tribute On 10th Anniversary Of His Death


Vin Diesel shares a touching tribute to Paul Walker 10 years after the actor’s tragic death on November 30, 2013. Diesel expresses that “more smiles manage to break through the tears” as years pass because he knows his bond with Walker will be stronger than ever when they eventually reunite. Walker’s character, Brian O’Connor, remains alive in the world of Fast and Furious, and Diesel has previously teased that the franchise won’t end without a proper farewell to Brian and Walker.

Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel takes to social media to share a touching tribute to Paul Walker, 10 years after the actor’s death. First released in 2001, the debut installment in the long-running Fast and Furious franchise introduces Diesel as Dominic Toretto and Walker as Brian O’Connor. Both characters would return for a number of sequels, but Walker tragically passed away on November 30, 2013, during the production of Furious 7.

Now, on the 10th anniversary of Walker’s passing, Diesel has shared a touching tribute post on Instagram to honor his late Fast and Furious costar. Check out the actor’s emotional post below:

Accompanying an image of Walker with one of his daughters, Diesel reminisces about an important lesson learned from the late actor and how his legacy still lives on today. Diesel’s full caption is included below:

I was listening to a song this morning…‘That Lucky Old Sun’… thought of you, racing around Heaven all day. Hahaha…
The family of the Mourning, feels like it has grown since a decade ago… feel’s like that experience of losing someone is far too common today. Leaving more and more of us in search for meaning, trying to make sense of this complex existence…
Oh, I have finally understood what you use to do with the phone, “phone Fasting”… you had the insight to turn off your phone for long stretches of time. I started this year to do just that. You used to say, Vin and I can go years without talking, and our brotherhood will always be stronger than we left it, the ones who truly love you will always be there.
Amen to that.
This is one of my favorite images ever taken… You knew how proud I was when my daughter, the Alpha Angel, your niece would play the piano… well last night she was playing Moonlight Sonata… it took me back to the night before she was born. Me and you were working late… you were telling me that the best moment in life would be witnessing my child being born. That priceless smile you had when I told you the next day that I had cut the umbilical cord…
The next song she started playing on the piano is by an artist you would have loved, named Billie Eilish, ‘What was I made for’… when she started to play, the other angels all came and joined her at the piano and they started singing… wow…emotions… angels, I know you were listening.
After ten years… I know these days of beautiful remembrance will be filled with tears. But as time rolls on, with each year that passes… more smiles manage to break through the tears. Cause I know, when I see you again… our brotherhood will be stronger than we left it.
Miss you.

Will Brian Be Seen Again In Fast & Furious?
Furious 7 Reveals How Paul Walker’s Character Can Return
CGI Paul Walker in Furious 7.

Walker’s death in November 2013 came with a great deal of sadness, but it also created problems for the Furious 7 production, which was about halfway done. It was ultimately decided that Walker’s remaining scenes would be completed with a digital recreation of the actor, with his two brothers, Cody and Caleb Walker, serving as body doubles. Although Walker may have passed away, Brian remains alive and well within the world of the films, though he has not been seen in the flesh since Furious 7’s emotional ending.

The closet audiences have come to seeing Brian again (outside of the flashbacks featured in Fast X) is at the end of F9: The Fast Saga, when the character’s iconic Nissan Skyline pulls up at Dom’s house. This summer’s Fast X supposedly sets up the conclusion of the franchise in an 11th and potentially 12th installment (in addition to the announced Dwayne Johnson Luke Hobbs spinoff movie), and it’s very likely that the final movie will see Brian return in some capacity.

Diesel has also essentially teased as much, telling Total Film (via GamesRadar) earlier this year: “I couldn’t imagine this saga ending without truly saying goodbye to Brian O’Conner.” It’s unclear if this will mean a substantial digital recreation of the actor for extended portions of the film or a quick cameo at the very end, but it seems like audiences haven’t seen the last of Brian just yet. Even in death, Walker remains a key pillar of Fast and Furious, and it’s fitting that the final film will feature another heartfelt goodbye to further honor the late actor.

All 4 Fast & Furious Heroes Who Stayed Dead (& Which One Is Most Likely To Return)


Fast & Furious franchise is known for bringing back dead characters, but there are a few heroes who have remained dead. Jack Toretto, Dom’s father, died in a racing accident and his death should not be undone in the franchise. Jesse, a member of Dom’s crew, was killed in a drive-by shooting, while Vince was killed during an ambush. Elena, Dom’s love interest, was killed by the villain Cipher.

The Fast & Furious franchise has brought many characters back from the dead, but a handful of its heroes have remained killed off after their demise. The Fast Saga has taken its characters on a wild ride from street racing to the most outlandish adventures possible. The running theme of the Fast & Furious franchise has long been family, with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) building quite a large family indeed over the course of the Fast Saga’s run.

On top of its embrace of ridiculous, superhuman feats as a staple of its action scenes, the Fast & Furious movies are also well known for bringing back seemingly dead characters for more missions. The returns of Sung Kang’s Han in F9 and Gal Gadot’s Gisele Yashar in Fast X would be especially noteworthy in emphasizing the notion that no Fast & Furious death is irreversible. However, that is not entirely true, as there have been a few Fast & Furious heroes who have died and never come back.

4 Jack Toretto
An image of Jack Toretto driving a car in F9

Jack Toretto (J.D. Pardo) is the father of Dom, Mia (Jordana Brewster), and Jakob Toretto (John Cena), and is first seen in a flashback to 1989 in F9. Jack is a highly skilled race car driver who instilled that talent in his children, with Dom and Jakob being part of his racing pit crew. However, Jack’s racing career took a tragic turn when his car malfunctioned and crashed, killing him. Dom later beat his father’s racing opponent, Kenny Linder (Jim Parrack), almost to death with a wrench, believing him responsible for his father’s demise.

This tragedy also led to Dom and Jakob falling out, with Dom later coming to believe that Jakob set up their father’s death since he was the last one to work on his car. However, Jack was intentionally attempting to throw the race in order to get his family out of debt. He had asked Jakob to help tinker with his car so that it would fail, with Jack’s death being unintentional on both their parts. While his return has been theorized by fans, of all the characters killed off in Fast & Furious, Jack Toretto’s death should never be retconned.

3 Jesse

One of the early members of Dom’s family in the original The Fast and the Furious, Jesse (Chad Lindberg) was the brains of Dom’s crew in his enterprise of stealing DVD players. Jesse went on the run after losing a street race to Dom’s rival, Johnny Tran (Rick Yune), having bet his MK3 Volkswagen Jetta in the race. Jesse was later killed outside of Dom’s house when Johnny Tran and his associate Lance Nguyen (Reggie Lee) arrived and performed a drive-by shooting. Dom and Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) then chased down Johnny Tran and Lance Nguyen to avenge their fallen friend.

2 Vince

Vince (Matt Schulze) was another member of Dom’s crew in The Fast & the Furious, and he was badly injured during a truck heist in that first movie. After his recovery, Vince fled to Rio de Janeiro where he later reunited with Dom and family in Fast Five. Despite Vince having settled down with a wife and a baby son, he agreed to join Dom’s daring heist of Rio’s most feared crime boss Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida). Unfortunately, Vince was killed during an ambush by Reyes’s team. After successfully pulling off the heist, Dom left Vince’s intended share of the money with his wife and son.

1 Elena

Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky) worked alongside Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) in apprehending Dom and his crew in Fast Five. She and Dom gradually developed feelings for each other, however, and departed for Spain with Dom at the end of the movie. After Dom learned that his wife Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) was still alive despite her apparent death in Fast & Furious, Dom and Elena had an amicable split, only for it to later be revealed that Elena is the mother of Dom’s son in The Fate of the Furious.

After Elena was killed by the villainous Cipher (Charlize Theron), Dom and Letty raised the boy together, with the two naming him Brian after Brian O’Conner. Meanwhile, Dom later met Elena’s sister Isabel (Daniela Melchior), who joined Dom’s crew in Fast X. While Elena remains deceased as of Fast X, the arrival of her sister Isabel and Fast & Furious’s habit of not truly killing off characters makes her the most likely thought-to-be-dead hero to potentially return as the franchise speeds towards its finale.
