Star Paul Walker passed away before the film was completed, making Furious 7 all that more meaningful. His character retires in the film, but not before he has one last piece of the action.
Everything about Furious 7 is bigger and badder, like one stunt in which five cars drop from a plane high above the desert -- something the crew actually did without CGI.
While the films stunts get tougher, Michelle Rodriguez found that her wardrobe softened a bit, and she's not complaining.
"This is the first time in my entire career that I actually dressed like a girl," she said. "I love a good makeover. My entire career has been spent in a tank top and jeans!"
Kurt Russell and Jason Statham join the franchise for its seventh turn, and Statham squares off with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in one of the movie's many epic fight scenes.
"The public out there knows he's a tough guy," Dwayne said of Statham. "He's legit. He's as advertised."
Even as the action drives the film, there is still a sense of loss, seeing Walker for the last time with the co-stars that he considered family.
"Increasing the emotional stakes is what will set this saga apart from any other movie," Vin Diesel said of the film.
Furious 7 hits theaters April 3.
