When the first trailer for the ninth Fast and Furious film dropped at the Fast 9 Festival in Miami on January 31, fans of the nearly two-decade-long action franchise were gifted a shocking surprise. After winning over audiences in 2006's The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift, Han Lue, the effortlessly cool street racer, thief, businessman, and former member of Dominic Toretto's crew, is back from the dead.
Played by Sung Kang, he died in the third Fast and Furious movie, the first in the franchise directed by Justin Lin. Though he appeared in the next three films, the saga's timeline puts his death after the events of Fast & Furious 6. Thus, fans have believed for more than a decade that Han's fate in the universe had been sealed.
Yet, there he is in the trailer, characteristically snacking as he enters a room full of his former crew mates.
This, of course, begs the question: How is Han still alive after audiences saw him die? We Got This Covered claims to know the answer.
Take the following with a grain of salt, but the outlet alleges that Han simply escaped his car before it became enveloped in flames. Unidentified and unverified sources close to the outlet say that Han has been in hiding, staying under the radar of those he knows would be after him following the fateful incident. The site also reported that the character will make an appearance in the saga's 10th and final film, slated for an April 2021 release.
However Han Lue makes his long-desired return in F9, the news of his survival has been a shot of adrenaline to the fanbase of the Fast franchise.
After being with each other for more than a decade, the cast has evolved into a family as much as the characters have. Han was a huge part of that, which helped convince director Justin Lin to bring the character back into Dom's family and back into the Fast universe. As Lin told Entertainment Weekly:
"I think it's really up to us to bring him back and explore it throughout the themes that we're all used to."
The fans certainly seem happy. On Twitter, the announcement that Han would return got the hashtag HanIsAlive trending. It also appeared to renew the trust of Fast diehards who felt betrayed by the movies after it gave Han's killer Deckard Shaw prime billing in two films following the popular character's death. Keep watching the video to see if possibly is s this how Han returns in Fast and Furious 9?
