Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation have announced that Fast & Furious: Spy Racers, the animated series, will debut on Netflix on December 26, with Vin Diesel onboard as executive producer. They also released new images and confirmed the cast.
The action follows teenager Tony Toretto (Dom’s younger cousin) and his friends as they are recruited by a government agency to “infiltrate an elite racing league serving as a front for a nefarious crime organization bent on world domination.”
The cast includes Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf) as Tony Toretto, Camille Ramsey (American Vandal) as Layla Gray, Luke Youngblood (Harry Potter) as Frostee Benson, Charlet Chung (Overwatch) as Echo, Jorge Diaz (Jane the Virgin) as Cisco Renaldo and Manish Dayal (The Resident) as Shashi Dhar.
Meanwhile, guest voices will include Vin Diesel’s daughter Similce Diesel as Frostee’s younger sister Sissy, Renee Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton) as Ms Nowhere, Jimmy Tatro (American Vandal) as Mitch, plus the likes of Carlos Alazraqui (The Fairly Odd Parents), Eric Bauza (The Adventures of Puss in Boots), Grey Griffin (DC Super Hero Girls), Kevin Michael Richardson (Trolls: The Beat Goes On!), Fred Tatasciore (Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia) and True Valentino (Archibald’s Next Big Thing).
The Fast & Furious movie franchise has so far spanned nine films, earning nearly $6 billion at the worldwide box office – this is now Universal Pictures’ most profitable and longest-running franchise.
This type of success explains the expansion into toys and video games, as well as the Hobbs & Shaw spin-off franchise, plus this new animated series. The ninth chapter in the original Fast & Furious saga arrives in U.S. theaters on May 22, 2020.
