"The Fast Saga" 20th Anniversary

"The Fast Saga" 20th Anniversary is being celebrated this year, highlighting the billion dollar media franchise that started with the feature "The Fast and the Furious" (2001), as the first in a series of slick action films exploiting illegal street racing, car heists and international spying:

The franchise also includes short films, a television series, live shows, video games, and theme park attractions. 

Universal expanded the series to include the spin-off film "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" (2019), while its subsidiary DreamWorks Animation followed this with the animated streaming TV series "Fast & Furious Spy Racers". 

Soundtrack albums have been released for all the films, as well as compilation albums containing  music heard in the films. Two short films that tie into the series have also been released. 

The series is Universal's biggest franchise, and ranks as the seventh highest-grossing film series ever, with a combined gross of over $6 billion.
