Ok, this is the place issues begin to get difficult. In launch order, 2003’s The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is meant to go right here should you’re watching within the franchise’s order of launch. However, should you’re monitoring the story’s implied timeline, then 2009’s Fast & Furious is the precise third installment within the Fast saga story.
Taking place 5 years after the top of The Fast and the Furious, Dom and Brian’s reunion is technically set within the “present day,” which means 2009 begins a 3 film run of prequels that not solely see Han Lue (Sung Kang) alive and effectively, however already part of Dom’s crew, till his demise later down the highway. That’s not the one wrench Fast & Furious throws into the gears, as Letty’s demise within the franchise is dated “May 30, 2009.” Which means The Fast and the Furious takes place in 2004, as an alternative of the assumed modern setting of 2001. Buckle up people, as a result of it’s about to get much more attention-grabbing with the following entry within the sequence.
