Fast and Furious 9 Release Date, Trailer, Story, Cast
With eight, high octane structures in The Fast & Furious franchise tallying $1.78 billion domestically or a stupid $5.17 billion worldwide and clearly Universal is aiming to keep the cine box office busting vehicle cruising along. Last year’s installment, The Fate of the Furious 8th, added a huge chunk to that total with over $226 million domestically or more than $1.28 billion worldwide, so it’s obvious that the hype for this film-verse is still strong. The studio had previously set the 9th installment for an April 2019 release, but now, Fast & Furious 9 has been delayed.
As THR reports, Universal will now release Fast & Furious 9 on April 13, 2020, Easter weekend. Currently, details beyond that are non-existent. There is no director announced as of yet or it’s unclear if F. Gary Gray will return behind the wheel; he does not have any announced projects coming up so his schedule should be clear.
Viewers can expect the installment favorites like Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris to return, but no casting has been confirmed at this point. We are not sure if Dwayne Johnson or Jason Statham will continue in their supporting roles since they might just have their own Fast and Furious things going on.

Elsewhere in the Fast and Furious, a 10th installment was previously announced or scheduled for an April 21, 2021 release; it’s unclear if Universal will shift that date as well.
Buried within that latest news comes another announcement from Universal and DreamWorks Animation: Trolls 2 will move up from April 10, 2020 to February 17, 2020.
Walt Dohrn returns to direct the movie with Gina Shay once again producing. Dohrn co-directed Trolls with Mike Mitchell, or the animated movie went on to enjoy a strong box office performance both domestically or abroad, bringing in nearly $356 million.
