Fast and Furious is an American film series based on the theme of street racing, action, heists and spies. The movie is prominent worldwide and is indeed a binge-worthy watch for autophiles like me. Fast and Furious movies collectively known as The Fast Saga, have a vast range of stories and characters and is one of the oldest running movie series. The Fast and Furious was released in 2001 with the plan of making it a tetralogy series. The last movie in this series was released amidst covid in 2021. After Fast and Furious 9, every fan of this movie had only one question Is Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 10?
The first film set the theme of the story. It was based on illegal street racing and spies. Later the movie transitioned towards heists and covert government operations related to the fast family. Fast Five and Furious 7 are the most liked movie in this franchise. It also had some movies different from the main league of The Fast Saga. It expanded the fast universe with movies like Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift and Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw.
This movie series is one of the biggest and most commercially successful franchises for Universal Studios. The Fast Saga is set to end with upcoming two movies. The sequel, Fast X is under filming and will be co-related with the eleventh film to conclude the series. But The Fast Saga cannot conclude without Brian O’ Conner. This article will cover every detail you need to know about the presence of Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 10.
Why did the audience hype the comeback of Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 10?
The stardom of Paul Walker boomed after this movie. He played the role of Brian O’ Conner in the Fast Saga. He is one of the most loved characters in this movie series. This is the reason why fans are anticipating the arrival of Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 10.
Brian O’ Conner was initially introduced in The Fast and the Furious in 2001. He was portraying the role of an undercover cop and was a car genius with impeccable skills in car racing. He was supposed to pull the man behind some consecutive heists of electronic goods by a crew driving modified Honda Civics. On his quest, he crashed into Mia, the sister of an infamous racer, Dominic Toretto.
The story then revolved around Dom and his crew and Brian being a part of them. It was later discovered that Dom and his crew were responsible for the heists and Brian helped them escape the cops while one of their members, Vince got shot and was taken to police custody. Dom and his family parted ways with Brian and Brian shifted to Miami to avoid the consequences of his actions.
2 Fast 2 Furious solely focused on Brian O’ Conner. It introduced us to Roman, Brian’s childhood friend, and the two adventuring on a mission together. The first five movies in The Fast Saga introduced us to the characters in the movie and showed us their life. Tej was also first seen in 2 Fast 2 Furious.
Paul Walker did the most dangerous stunts and action scenes in the movie series. Everything was fine until Fast and Furious 6. Furious 7 was under filming but unfortunately, Paul Walker died in an accident.
Furious 7 was the last movie of Paul Walker and it was the last time when we saw Brian O’ Conner. Most of you won’t be aware of the fact that Paul Walker didn’t complete the shooting of the movie. Only 25% of the movie was filmed before his sudden demise. It was his brothers, Cody Walker and Caleb Walker who completed his role in the movie. They looked exactly like Paul Walker because of the amazing effects of CGI Units.
The whole story of that movie was changed because they wanted to keep the scenes shot by Paul Walker in the movie as a tribute to him. Those who knew that Brian O’ Conner was there in Furious 7 only through CGI, believed that Paul Walker might return in the future projects of The Fast Saga.
However, The Fate of The Furious clarified to us that Brian O’ Conner has retired and is leading a peaceful life with Mia and their children. Fans were disappointed after his character was retired. But some easter eggs in Fast and Furious 9 gave us the hints of the arrival of Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 10.
What confirmed the presence of Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 10?
Fast and Furious 9 gave us easter eggs that confirmed the arrival of Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 10. But only the keen observers of The Fast Saga could have related to those scenes. But don’t worry I’ll tell you everything that certain Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 10.
Brian O’ Conner drove a Nissan GTR R34 in a few of the installments of the Fast Franchise. He was last seen driving a blue Nissan GTR R34 in Fast and Furious 4 in 2009. He was mostly seen driving JDM cars and was obsessed with the GTR. He himself confirmed that he loved Nissan GTRs in the Fast and Furious 4.
At the end of Fast and Furious 9, we saw the fast family reunited at ‘1327’ and were about to start the prayer before their food until Dominic Torreto asked Mia a question, ‘Where is He?’ And Mia replied that ‘He is on the way’. Though they didn’t refer to the name that ‘He’ here means Brian O’ Conner but in the next scene a blue-colored Nissan GTR 34 pulled up on the street and the movie ended. If you observed keenly, then you may have noticed that the license plate of that GTR was the same as the license plate of the GTR driven by Brian in Fast and Furious 4.
There was another easter egg as well. Though it was a small hint it mattered. In furious 7, ‘1327’ the home of Dom was bombed and was completely destructed. After that movie, Brian O’ Conner was never seen in the Fast Saga but in Fast and Furious 9, the home was seen rebuilding and the fast family prayed at the same location they did in the first movie.
The fast saga gained negative reviews after the furious 7 and at a point, it felt like the franchise is shattering but this scene in Fast 9 can portray to us that the fast family has reunited and is forming once again. The return of Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 10 can once again delight the fans of The Fast Franchise.
These were the two easter eggs, we saw in Fast and Furious 9. Codey and Caleb Walker were also spotted on the sets of Fast X. Besides, Brian the comeback of Deckard Shaw is also expected.
I am embedding the video in this article that gave us the hint of Brian’s comeback in Fast Family. Based on these instances we may believe that we will witness Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 10.
