If Pixar Made Furious 7

The Furious franchise is best known for testing the limits of physics and the suspension of disbelief. But could the central set piece from the newest movie, now the most popular entry in the blockbuster franchise, actually come from Cars?

This video mash-up by IGN, which overlays footage from those animated kids movies with audio from the Furious 7 trailer, suggests, among other things, that Furious 7 director James Wan could have drawn some unlikely inspiration from Pixar’s own car-driven franchise. At the very least, Pixar beat him to the punch when it comes to parachuting cars out of airplanes.
