MORE INFORMATION: Movies you must rewatch to understand “F9”
“Fast and Furious” It began as a portrait of street racing until it became true works of world espionage, smuggling and explosions wherever the protagonists go. It started in 2001 and, two decades later, the franchise is still going strong, with new and returning cast members.

MORE INFORMATION: The 5 times heroes did too much collateral damage where they went
WHY HAS DOM NEVER MENTIONED HIS BROTHER JAKOB?
Ever since Jakob made his debut in the F9 trailer, fans wondered how his existence was not mentioned in the first eight installments of the series. While it is still unclear if Jakob is also Mia’s brother or if he is only blood related to Dom, F9 will have to work hard to explain Jakob’s absence.
Its existence currently picks up on Dom’s origins, as viewers were always led to believe that Dom and Mia were the only two members of the Toretto family in The Fast Saga. Clearly, the brothers are not on good terms, but something important must have happened to explain why Dom acts like Jakob doesn’t.
WHY IS MIA INVOLVED IN F9 BUT NOT BRIAN?
Due to the tragic death of Paul Walker, any legitimate presence of Brian after Furious 7 was made impossible. Of course, Brian is said to be alive and well in “The Fate of the Furious,” and that’s the possible case in F9. Still, the character is missing from the action even though his wife, Mia, is assisting in Dom’s mission.
Something may have happened to Brian since the eighth installment, or maybe Mia encouraged him to stay behind while helping in Dom’s conflict with Jakob. Either way, it will be increasingly difficult to explain Brian’s continued absence with the stakes at stake.
HOW DID HAN SURVIVE THE EXPLOSIVE AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT?
The biggest surprise within the F9 trailer was the return of Sung Kang’s Han. He was last seen in Fast & Furious 6, the movie that sheds light on the character’s alleged death. While it’s still unclear why he didn’t reveal that he was actually alive, the other question revolves around how he survived what looked like a fatal accident.
WHAT OTHER FAST & FURIOUS CHARACTERS WILL BE RETURNING IN F9?
Besides Han, F9 features some other Tokyo Drift characters like Sean (Lucas Black), Twinkie (Bow Wow), and Earl (Jason Tobin). That is why the question arises of what other surprises F9 has in store in terms of the cast. While some fans are hoping Gal Gadot’s Gisele will show up, others predict that Eva Mendes, Devon Aoki or John Ortiz are more likely to return.
WHERE ARE HOBBS AND SHAW DURING THE F9 MISSION?
After Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw assisted Dom and his team in The Fate of the Furious, which at times meant taking on Dom, the pair ended up reuniting for a side mission in the spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw. The duo looks like they will be absent from F9 and the movie will need to explain why the two are not involved this time.
WHY IS CIPHER STILL BEHIND DOM?
When Cipher first approached Dom in The Fate of the Furious, she manipulated him into betraying his own crew. His motive stemmed from the hope of starting a nuclear war after Dom stole key information and devices to carry out his plan.
However, Dom ended up foiling Cipher’s plans, who clearly still harbors a hatred for Dom and his crew, as he enlists Jakob’s help in killing his former partner. Although revenge is a plausible motivation, there has to be more driving Cipher’s actions.
WHY DOES DOM’S CREW GO TO SPACE?
Ever since the modified Pontiac Fiero rocket car was shown in the first trailer for the F9, everyone waited to talk about the “Fast & Furious” franchise heading into space. Roman and Tej are the two shown on the rocket car in the second trailer, but the details surrounding the special mission remain unclear. Taking the journey out of the atmosphere will be a first for The Fast Saga and open the door to even more savage stunts in future installments.
