Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges also remembered the former leader of the franchise.

"It's paying homage to him. It's honoring him," Ludacris said. "I can't wait for you to see it. Watch your makeup, because it's going to be a tearjerker."

Paul's younger brother Cody was present at the premiere, as he filled in for Paul to complete his scenes. There have been reports that Cody is pursuing acting as a career now following the film, and he was feeling the love on the red carpet.

While Cody looks for new movies to star in, fans will be looking for a Furious 8.

Details on another sequel have yet to be confirmed, but if it does move forward, we could see an unlikely member added to the cast -- Dame Helen Mirren. The Oscar winner told ET that she's always wanted to be a part of the series.
