With seven movies to its name already, the Fast & Furious franchise had to find a way to stay fresh with "The Fate of the Furious."

If you've seen any of the trailers so far, you already know the big, not-so-secret bombshell: Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) goes rogue. It's a development fans couldn't have expected, but one the team felt was necessary. In fact, in a new featurette on the film, star and producer Diesel calls it "the only way we were really going to be able to continue this story."

The idea was to take what fans had seen before and do something completely different. As such, Dom goes from loyal family man to betrayer, with the help of the "fiercest villain" yet, Cipher (Charlize Theron). It's an concept we're still trying to wrap our mind's around, comforted only by reassurances from Diesel that the film will "blow people's minds."

Watch the featurette below for more insight.

"The Fate of the Furious" opens on April 14.
