With Han appearing in “F9,” many have wondered Han’s original timeline throughout the “Fast and Furious” movies.
“Fast & Furious” has become one of the most famous action movie sagas in the world. His latest installation, titled “F9,” would have hit all theaters in 2020 had it not been for the global coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). Now, its premiere has been set in 2021 by Universal Pictures itself.
Among everything shown in the trailers distributed by the company, what has most caught the attention of fans of “The Fast Saga” is that Han will rejoin Toretto’s band for the new mission they must face. Fast & Furious 9 premiere postponed to 2021 due to corona But how was this possible if Han had been killed a few movies ago by an explosion from the killer Shaw?
Portrayed by Sung Kang, Han appeared in four films, in addition to being in the short “Los Bandoleros.” His alleged death in “Furious 7” started a movement among his followers called “Justice for Han”, as they considered that his character had a lot of potential for future installments before the writers decided to show his death.
Now, with his return officially confirmed, this movement has yet to receive the answer to the question of how he survived the explosion of “F7”. At the same time, a review of the character’s timeline has to be done to know what he has done in recent years, although Screenrant has taken care of the latter with information from all the films.
Han’s first appearance in “The Fast and the Furious” was in “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,” where he served as the mentor to Sean Boswell, the protagonist of that story. However, the sequels to that film and the short “Los Bandoleros” were positioned in the past, so Han’s origin in the franchise was shown later.
By retroactively changing the timeline, “Fast & Furious 6” was able to explain why Han returned to Japan in “Tokyo Drift.” It also filled in the gaps with respect to all the money Han had made up to that point, as he made millions of dollars for the heist he did with Toretto’s family in “Fast Five.”
Han’s presumed death in “Tokyo Drift” was shown again in the middle credits scene of “Fast and Furious 6”, providing insight into Deckard Shaw’s involvement as an introduction to the events of “Fast and Furious 7”. .
