Most of us right now are on the lookout for things to do (other than binge-watching all day) to cure our lockdown-induced boredom. Well, this week, it seems LEGO has come to the rescue.

And this one’s for all the Fast and Furious fans out there…

The Fast & Furious world premiered way back in 2001, and was initially dismissed by many as just another mindless action movie.

But since then, we’ve enjoyed 8 sequels and the franchise’s cast has grown to include several A-listers, all while catapulting the original unknowns into superstardom as well.

All the Fast & Furious titles have been monumental successes.

Fast & Furious is Universal Picture’s largest grossing franchise of all time and currently ranks as the 9th highest-grossing franchise in the world. Put together, the movies have a combined gross sum of $5.1 billion in the international box office.

Feel old yet?

With the past movies being so damn good, Fast fans were understandably thrilled when the filming for the 9th installment officially began.

Universal confirmed the new date after pushing back the original release date by a whole year. But, hey, good things come to those who wait, right?

Universal officially pushed back the release date of the upcoming film for a full year… again.

And the reason? The current coronavirus pandemic.

Although there has been a silver lining…

Thanks in no small part to the team over at LEGO.

And what they’ve come up with it utterly incredible.
