The Fast Films are a success because they are extremely crowd pleasing films, but part of the fun is that they go all over the world and bring in more characters from other locations. So I do think the diversity plays into it, but in a positive way. They have characters that are Asian, Israeli, White, Black, Brazilian etc. It's not just targeting a certain demo, it's extremely Universal. Especially starting with pt 4. Which is when the series really kicked off with audiences.

Make an entertaining crowd pleasing film and people will show regardless of who's the lead. Just don't cast a dip**** actor and your all good.... even then you can still be a hit.
