The 47-year-old took the audience back two years ago at the same panel when he and late co-star Paul Walker announced to move forward with the film that would become Furious 7. Holding back tears, Diesel reminisced:
"[Paul and I] were giddy and excited. You all gave me so much confidence. There was so much love. You've been so loyal all along. You helped us create history here."
Right before the actor's announcement, footage screened of the final moment of Furious 7. A scene played where Walker and Diesel's characters go on one final car race before drifting their separate ways.
It's no big surprise that the studio greenlit another installment in the long-running franchise. Furious 7 took home the gold at the box office, earning $1.15 billion worldwide — making it the No.7 spot on the list of highest-grossing films of all time!
Are U excited for Furious 8?
