Yes, you read that headline right: An animated Fast and Furious show. Personally, I don’t even need to know what it’s about, nor do I very much care, but I guess I should go ahead and find out for your sake. Since most of you aren’t die-hard fans like I am.
Netflix has teamed up with DreamWorks Animation and Universal Pictures and will produce a straight-to-series animated show that’s based on the world’s favorite automotive franchise, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Here’s what the show will be about:
The Fast and the Furious animated show revolves around teenager Tony Toretto, who 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.
The series is executive produced by Vin Diesel, Neal Moritz and Chris Morgan who also serve as producers on the live-action Fast and the Furious franchise.
It’s unclear what the show will be officially titled, which stars will lend their voices or when it will be released, but I’m already prepared for a binge-watch session. Are you not?
All we have to go by right now is the basic synopsis and the art that you can see above. Will the show stick with real cars, or do a kind of GTA-style, very-real-looking-but-still-fake car thing?
Honestly, Fast and Furious could work so well as a cartoon. The stunts themselves have gotten so cartoonish in recent iterations that they might as well animate it and make it even more insane. I am so excited I can barely contain myself.
