Just when you thought the Fast & Furious franchise couldn’t get even bigger, the first trailer for the animated ‘Fast & Furious’ series on Netflix has been released.
The series, set to be titled Fast & Furious: Spy Racers, comes from Dreamworks and the trailer shows a pair of cars racing along the concrete embankments of a river in the U.S., likely in Los Angeles. The two cars featured don’t appear to be production models and instead made-up cars with styling reminiscent of real-life vehicles, similar to the cars you will find in Grand Theft Auto.
Fast & Furious: Spy Racers won’t have the cast which we’ve become accustomed to in the film franchise. Instead, the protagonist will be Dominic Toretto’s teenage cousin Tony who finds himself recruited with a bunch of friends into a government agency aiming to infiltrate an elite racing organization. This organization will be about much more than racing cars, however, and is actually a crime organization “bent on world domination.”
Netflix hasn’t yet said when the animated series will go live, other than confirming that it will debut this year. The series has been produced by Tim Hedrick, Bret Haaland, Vin Diesel, and Chris Morgan.
The Fast and the Furious franchise is also in the midst of an expansion on the silver screen. In August, the first spin-off film will be released in the form of Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. This film will hit theatres on August 2, 2019.
