Vin Diesel Celebrates Fast X With a Heartfelt Paul Walker Birthday Tribute! Emotional.

Vin Diesel posts a heartfelt tribute video to the late Paul Walker’s birthday, marking the release of Fast X, the tenth movie in the long-running series.

The Fast and the Furious, which debuted in 2001, introduced fans to Diesel’s Dominic Toretto and Walker’s Brian O’Conner. The film spawned a profitable series that has now expanded to nine films in the main narrative, with Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw serving as a spinoff. Following the release of F9: The Fast Saga last year, it was revealed that two more (and final) chapters were on the way.

Fast and Furious 10, officially named Fast X, is set to hit theatres next spring, with Diesel reprising his role as Toretto. The forthcoming picture will star a number of fascinating newcomers, including Alan Ritchson, Brie Larson, Rita Moreno, Daniela Melchior, and Aquaman’s Jason Momoa, who portrays the villain, in addition to series regulars like Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, and Ludacris. Walker, a series stalwart, died in 2013 and can last be seen in Furious 7, albeit his character is still alive in the Fast & Furious universe.

Diesel commemorates Walker’s 49th birthday in an emotive new video shared on his Instagram. Following delivering a moving narrative about how he and Paul helped Haiti after the tragic 2010 earthquake, the actor celebrates the Fast & Furious franchise’s tenth film, declaring “We finally finished. We eventually completed Fast 10, as you and I had promised many years ago.” Check out the video of Diesel below:

Fast X is projected to be the franchise’s second-to-last instalment before the 11th film closes the adventures of Toretto and the other Fast Saga characters. Because Walker’s character is still alive in the Fast & Furious universe, many fans have speculated if he would be digitally resurrected in some manner for the conclusion. In any event, Diesel’s video demonstrates how close the two got after working on The Fast and the Furious, as well as the lifespan they both saw in their characters and the film’s theme.

Although it’s unknown what Diesel has in store for Fast X fans, the Fast & Furious films continue to celebrate Walker in little ways, often showcasing his famous automobile as a hint that O’Conner is still alive and thriving.

Later episodes haven’t always done well with reviewers, but reaching ten films in a blockbuster series that began with a handful of street racers is no minor feat. It is unknown if Walker will be digitally inserted to Fast X or Fast & Furious 11 as a last goodbye, but Diesel clearly still carries the actor with him in spirit and regards their friendship in high respect.
