One of the most awaited sequels of the Fast Saga, Fast and Furious 9, has been delayed due to the Coronavirus outbreak. In an announcement posted on the official social media accounts, F9 will be moving its release date next year.
Check out the full statement released by the Fast & Furious staff:
“To our family of Fast fans everywhere, We feel all the love and the anticipation you have for the next chapter in our saga. That’s why it’s especially tough to let you know that we have to move the release date of the film. It’s become clear that it won’t be possible for all of our fans around the world to see the film this May.
We are moving the global release date to April 2021, with North America opening on April 2. While we know there is disappointment in having to wait a little while longer, this move is made with the safety of everyone as our foremost consideration. Moving will allow our global family to experience our new chapter together. We’ll see you next spring.”
Fast & Furious 9 was not the only movie that was affected by the outbreak. Mulan, James Bond, and all more movies expected to release this year are also being postponed.
