The Fast family is getting even bigger.

The new Fast X trailer gives fans their first look at the beginning of “the end of the road” for the franchise. The latest sequel brings back all our surviving favorites, from Vin Diesel’s fearless Dom Toretto to Sung Kang’s beloved Han Lue. But as is only fitting for the tenth main entry in this long-running series, there are quite a few new faces in the mix.

Who are these new characters? How does Jason Momoa’s villain tie back to the events of Fast Five? Is Brie Larson’s Tess friend or foe? And who is Rita Moreno playing? Let’s break down all the new additions to Dom’s ever-growing family.

Jason Momoa as Dante

Aquaman star Jason Momoa is undoubtedly the biggest addition to the ensemble cast this time around. Unsurprisingly, Momoa is playing the latest villain to threaten the Toretto clan. Equally unsurprising, he’s a character with close ties to another villain from earlier in the series. It really is all about family in this universe.

Momoa’s character is named Dante, and he’s the son of Joaquim de Almeida’s Fast Five character Hernan Reyes. As the trailer reminds us, Dom and Brian stole Reyes’ money by driving a bank vault through the streets of Rio de Janeiro (causing what we can only imagine was hundreds of millions of dollars in damage). That act robbed Dante of both his family fortune and his father, and it seems he’s been plotting against Dom ever since.

“He’s very sadistic and androgynous and he’s a bit of a peacock,” Momoa told Variety. “He’s got a lot of issues, this guy. He’s definitely got some daddy issues.”

It’s probably safe to assume he’s colluding with Charlize Theron’s hacker villain Cipher, as we briefly see her in the trailer, too. Though director Louis Leterrier teased that Cipher may have finally found the one partner too much even for her to handle.

“They are bad news, but one is more afraid than the other,” Leterrier told Empire Online. “One is worse news than the other.”

Fast X is where Dante’s plans come to fruition. He doesn’t want to kill Dom, but make him suffer in the same way Dante has suffered for the past 12 years. Given the ominous way the trailer is framed and the fact that the series is rapidly nearing its endpoint, there’s a good chance at least one of our heroes will meet their end against Dante. After all, we need a good cliffhanger leading into Fast 11.

PEOPLE: Jason Momoa Attends the 2022 Oscars One Day After Hernia Surgery, Jokes He’s ‘Getting Old’

“Throwing bodies around … getting old, bro,” Jason Momoa joked at the 2022 Oscars of getting hernia surgery after finishing production on Aquaman 2

A surgery didn’t stop Jason Momoa from attending the 2022 Academy Awards!

“Throwing bodies around … getting old, bro,” joked Momoa, 42.

Momoa went on to tell Extra that he was “excited for Dune” — which is up in 10 categories, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Cinematography — “to win some awards.”

“[I’m] excited to see my friends and my [step]daughter [Zoë Kravitz],” he continued. “And I’m excited to announce these eight very important awards.”

The eight awards Momoa is referring to are the categories that will be presented in the hour before the live broadcast begins, with their wins edited into the live broadcast for viewers at home.

The categories are Best Documentary Short Subject, Best Film Editing, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Original Score, Best Production Design, Best Animated Short Film, Best Live-Action Short Film, and Best Sound.

The 2022 Oscars are airing Sunday from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on ABC.

Denis Villeneuve directs the film, which stars Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya and an all-star cast.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: Last September, the first trailer to Dune was released to much fanfare. Ten months later, Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi adaptation is back after a long delay as COVID-19 upended the theatrical marketplace. Timothée Chalamet stars in Dune as Paul, heir to House Atreides.

The new trailer opens with Chani (Zendaya) narrating a look at her desert planet, Arrakis, explaining how the empire has exploited the planet for its natural resource known as Spice, and how her people have fought back. Spice is needed to conduct interstellar travel, making it the most valuable resource in the known universe. The film sees House Atreides — led by Leto (Oscar Isaac) — take stewardship over Arrakis.

Dune, from Legendary and Warner Bros., is part one of a planned two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic novel, which is credited with inspiring works such as Star Wars. It also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, David Dastmalchian, Charlotte Rampling and Stellan Skarsgard, as the villainous Baron Harkonnen. Jon Spaihts and Eric Roth penned the script.

In addition to the film, Dune is being spun off as a TV show. Dune will debut in theaters and on HBO Max on Oct. 22.
