Vin Diesel Is Bringing a ‘Fast & Furious’ Animated Series to Netflix
Just in case there aren’t enough movies for you.
The seemingly never-ending Fast & Furious saga will bring its brand of high-octane entertainment to a new audience.
Netflix and DreamWorks Animation Television announced that an animated Fast & Furious series executive produced by Vin Diesel has been given the green light.
The show will be geared toward children as a part of the streaming service’s expansion into original family programming.
Netflix has further details regarding plot and production:
Teenager Tony Toretto follows in the footsteps of his cousin Dom when he and his friends 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.
Tim Hedrick (DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender) and Bret Haaland (All Hail King Julien) will serve as executive producers and showrunners. The series is also executive produced by Vin Diesel, Neal Moritz and Chris Morgan who also serve as producers on the live-action Fast & Furious franchise.
The franchise’s last two movies—Furious 7 and The Fate of the Furious—both grossed well over $1 billion at the box office.
With three more films slated to arrive over the next three years—and a spin-off starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on the way—who knows if the ancillary animated series will be a boost or a bust.
