Hollywood action superstar Vin Diesel has opened up about what makes his Fast & Furious franchise so popular globally. He also spoke of the biggest difference between the first film, which was released in 2001, and the ninth installment that is all set to release.
“I think the greatest difference is when the first film came out, you had no idea who these characters were. You had no idea what world you were entering when you came into the theatres to see this movie. Now, people feel that they have grown up with this saga. People feel like this is their franchise,” he said.
Fast & Furious 9: The Fast Saga also stars John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez and Dwayne Johnson. The film is directed by Justin Lin.
Diesel stressed that each time the makers embark on a new chapter they always thought of how to reach higher.
“How do we dazzle the audience or engage the audience even more? As John (Cena) articulated these are characters that are very familiar to the moviegoer, and the moviegoers have their own relationship with this family of characters that live in the saga. I will just say there is a familiarity,” said Diesel. — IANS
