Leer en español: ¿Cuál es el orden para ver toda la saga de Rápidos y Furiosos?

Fast and Furious is one of the biggest sagas in history . Even in a pandemic year, the ninth installment became the film that managed to give a strong boost to the film industry, to the point of earning 70 million dollars in three days in theaters in the United States and more than 400 million worldwide. .

The saga always broke records. For example, from initial delivery to last, it accumulated more than US$ 3.9 trillion in profit . This is explained not only by the fact that several films have been released, but also that all of them have managed to capture the attention of viewers. For example, the ninth and final installment maintains the level and essence that made all previous productions famous.

The truth is that many people saw only some movies but not the entire saga. There will even be those who want to go to the movie theaters to see this ninth installment, although without having consumed the previous stories, which, between spin-offs and prequels, can be quite confusing with the order . We tell you how to do it.

In what order should you watch the entire saga?

The first thing to mention is that the saga celebrates its 20th anniversary this year since it began broadcasting . In other words, the first film, which inaugurated this world of mischief about an engine, was released in 2001 ... and from there several parallel stories, continuations and prequels have emerged that you should know.

Some are more important than others for the plot, and several even have "different" names that could make you believe that it is not the same universe. However, we know that this saga will not only continue with a tenth film, but that there are several projects in parallel that will expand the main stories .

In this sense, there are three ways to view the entire franchise. The first one is the one that refers to the order on the release date . The second refers to the chronology of the F&F (Fast and Furious) universe. The third, on the other hand, is a kind of "wink" to the fans, which only adds three important products. We detail each one:

Release order:

  • The Fast and the Furious (2001)
  • 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
  • The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
  • Fast & Furious (2009)
  • Fast Five (2011)
  • Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
  • Furious 7 (2015)
  • The Fate of the Furious (2017)
  • Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)
  • F9 (2021)

Chronological order of the film:

  • The Fast and the Furious (2001)
  • 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
  • Fast & Furious (2009)
  • Fast Five (2011)
  • Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
  • The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
  • Furious 7 (2015)
  • The Fate of the Furious (2017)
  • Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)
  • F9 (2021)

Special order for fans:

  • The Fast and the Furious (2001)
  • Better Luck Tomorrow, similar movie (2002)
  • Turbo-Charged Prelude, a short film (2003)
  • 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
  • The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
  • Los Bandoleros, a short film (2009)
  • Fast & Furious (2009)
  • Fast Five (2011)
  • Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
  • Furious 7 (2015)
  • The Fate of the Furious (2017)
  • Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)
  • F9 (2021)

The "official release order" leads us to consider only the films in the order in which they were released. The chronological order of the story means keeping in mind that some films are prequels, so they should really be seen following the canonical order of the saga. The last one is a wink that adds two short films and a similar film with a F&F protagonist .

There are several ways to watch Fast and Furious. The important thing is that you do not miss the new movie or all the previous ones. You will discover an action saga, with high speed and a high sense of friendship and family. And for you ... what is the order you prefer to see them?
