And no, we're not talking about some Hot Wheels cartoon.

The Fast and the Furious franchise is going animated.

Netflix has ordered an animated series based on Universal Pictures’ blockbuster films about a group of illegal street racers, executive-produced by star Vin Diesel.

The series will follow Dom’s teenage cousin Tony Toretto as he and his friends are “recruited by a government agency to infiltrate an elite racing league serving as a front for a nefarious crime organisation bent on world domination.”

Hit or a miss?
