Watch Ludacris Recap All 7 Fast & Furious Movies in 8 Minutes
Let Tej get you up to speed.
This past weekend, we were finally graced with the release of The Fate of the Furious, the eighth (!) installment of Vin Diesel's nitrous-fueled race opera. With its leap-frogging timeline and ever-shifting allegiances, the story of Dominic Toretto, Brian O'Conner, and the rest of the Family can be a lot to keep track of. Lucky for you, Vanity Fair got rapper and Fast and Furious star Chris "Ludacris" Bridges to give us a SparkNotes-style recap of the entire saga, from the 2001 original all the way to 2015's car-skydiving Furious 7, in just eight minutes.
Whether you're a franchise newbie looking to arm yourself with some knowledge before heading to the theater or a seasoned Fast fan looking to brush up on your Furious lore, Tej Parker has got your back. Spoilers ahead for the first seven Fast and Furious movies because, well, duh.
Got all that? Good.
Now you're ready to take on the latest chapter of the Toretto Chronicles, in which allegiances shift once again as the team is forced to collaborate with the last movie's big bad, Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), to take down Dom, who has seemingly gone rogue in joining forces with "the very definition of high tech terrorism," Charlize Theron. But why? And for how long?
The Fate of the Furious is in theaters now.
