For those picking up the Fast & Furious 6 (2013) DVD/Blu Ray, you’ll be in for a nice surprise. It’ll contain an exclusive scene from 2014 car actioner Fast & Furious 7, depicting the funeral of Han (Sung Kang). This wouldn’t be the first mini-prequel or prequel for a Fast movie. Between the first and second movie there was a DVD special entitled Turbo-Charged Prelude. Fast & Furious was shipped with a short called Los Bandoleros. So this time we’ll get another bridge. The timeline is actually Fast 1, Fast 2, Fast 4, Fast 5, Fast 6, Fast 3 (these two sort of run concurrent) then Fast 7.
What can be expected from the upcoming release and vignette? Description below.
“The scene in question is the gang at Han’s funeral. So, if you were hoping that his death at the end of Fast & Furious 6 was a misdirect, it looks like you’re out of luck. He’s dead for real, and it’s hit the gang hard. There aren’t any tears shed (they’re all too manly for that), but Vin Diesel does croak out “You were always my brother, Han. He put you in this grave, so now I’ll do the same to him.
The bombshell comes when Ludacris says, “First Han, now Hobbs is laid up, of all people.” So at some point between FF6 and FF7, something serious happened to Hobbs to put him in the hospital. Considering new director James Wan has been tweeting about filming with the Rock, and the latter has been showing pictures from the set, it’s not like the accident will be offscreen. We’re betting that whatever happens to put Hobbs out of commission happens very early on during FF7, probably during the film’s opening action scene.
