News on Han coming back!!
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, showed than Han Lee died in a car explosion by Deckard Shaw. But I guess the producers did not want him out of the franchise yet. Sung Kang aka Han Lue will be coming back to The Fast Saga. He would be reuniting with his teammates.
Sung Kang explained in an interview that why the character Han Lue needed the separation from the movie franchise. He said-
“With these sequels, sometimes people take it for granted and think it’s just going to happen; I always think we have to earn the next one. And so to be able to go through that journey with Han… when I left, I felt it was appropriate and I felt like we were putting the character to bed, but it’s because of some of the things that happened that didn’t quite make sense to me, and so I felt like if I was going to come back, I really wanted to explore why. I think it’s really up to us to bring him back and explore it throughout the themes that we are all used too.”
