As the Fast X trailer revealed, the ghost from the past originates from 2011’s Fast Five when Dom and his crew took out nefarious Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes.

As Nathalie Emmanuel notes, “This family is ready to come back together.” Franchise veteran Michelle Rodrigues notes, “The heart and soul of the Fast & Furious franchise is its boots on the ground on location the more movies we make the bigger they get.”
