Meadow Walker, daughter of the late Paul Walker, shared a photo on Instagram with the children of her father’s co-star, Vin Diesel, stating that family is forever.
Paul starred in the FAST AND FURIOUS franchise with Diesel, and their children have grown close over the years, as well.
The photo shows Meadow, with Diesel’s children Hania, Vincent and Pauline, smiling at the camera.
She captioned the picture, “Family, forever.”

Paul died in a car accident in 2013 and was close with Diesel. The famous fathers’ friendship also helped grow a friendship between their families.
Movieguide® previously reported how Diesel wants to make another movie in the FAST AND FURIOUS franchise to please his children.
“I would be very cautious about talking about that, because if my kids even for a minute thought that I was wrapping up the saga, they would boycott,” Diesel told USA Today. “I have to be careful. They have great control over Daddy.”
Though the FURIOUS franchise says it’s about “family,” the series is anything but family friendly. Most movies in the franchise received at least a -2 or “extreme caution” warning from Movieguide®, with some receiving a -3 warning, or excessive content issues.
However, there are some redemptive elements in the movies.
Moiveguide®’s review of FAST AND FURIOUS 6 says,
“Like its immediate predecessor, FAST & FURIOUS 6 has a series of action-packed, exciting set pieces. Even better, by the end of the movie, the filmmakers have lifted up family, home, loyalty, protecting people, sacrifice, and even prayer.”
THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS also features a very strong Christian worldview.
“Staying true to the franchise’s theme, the movie extols the importance of family. Also, like recent entries, it features strong, positive and heartwarming Christian, moral elements. The team even gives thanks to God over a meal together at the end.”
The latest movie in the franchise, F9, was supposed to release this past April.
However, due to the coronavirus, the sequel was delayed a year and is set to hit theaters in April of 2021.
