Get Ready to Get Fast and Furious – In Animationby

It’s perhaps surprising to learn quite how enduringly popular the Fast and Furious movies actually are – big, bold and bonkers car chases, seedy scheming by underworld villains and all-out action from city to city – it appeals massively to certain audiences and, as such, it continues to be hugely profitable. Without adjusting for inflation, Furious 7, released in 2015, is – at the time of writing – the 6th biggest-selling movie of all time, with 8th instalment The Fate of The Furious sitting comfortably in 13thplace. While the likes of Black Panther may have surprised many with quite how well it is doing in the global rankings, it has a way to go before it catches up to Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and the rest of the crew – just under $200 million, at the time of writing, separates the movies. So what is it that makes these movies so successful?

It’s star power – it’s amazing stunts – and, of course, it’s the all-out action and creative thrill-rides that line each screenplay in the franchise. This is why news that Fast and Furious will be coming to Netflix – in the form of an animated series – is all the more exciting. If you consider what they’ve made possible on the big screen for real actors, cars and landscapes – what on earth could they come up with through the freedom of animation? The possibilities are, quite literally, endless.

While the series won’t follow Dom Toretto directly, it’ll focus on his cousin Tony, who finds himself recruited into a top secret task force to help bring down crime lords operating under a racing league – not unlike the ones we’ve seen on the big screen. DreamWorks animation will be working together with Netflix to produce the series, adding it to the list of cartoon specials and running series available through the streaming platform. DreamWorks’ move into serial animation has been a fruitful one – and the promised combination of high-octane racing, supervillain-thwarting and the undeniable – unique – charm of the Fast and Furious movies will hopefully only help to solidify the studios’ place on the small screen.

Is this one of the most bizarre movie-to-cartoon adaptations of recent years? Let’s wait and see – for our money, the over-the-top antics we’ve seen across eight movies so far will translate brilliantly well to an animated format – keep your eye on Netflix’s catalogue in the coming months.
