It’s been nearly one year since Paul Walker’s tragic death in a car crash, and the poster for the upcoming "Fast and Furious 7" is bringing feelings of excitement and sadness in equal measure to fans and cast alike.
Jordana Brewster, who reprises her role as Mia in the movie, said she is excited about its release in April. She told E! News that the final film will be a wonderful way to remember – and say goodbye to – Walker.
“I have not seen it yet,” the 34-year-old, Brazilian-born actress said. “I saw the movie trailer … and, I mean, it looks amazing. It’s so cool that each one sort of out-does the other.”
The actress said that the experience of returning to the set following Walker’s death was bittersweet for many.
"I think the beautiful thing is that they get to see Paul again … and in a way celebrate him," Brewster said. "I've heard he's really really good in it, so I look forward to seeing him too. Obviously it will be bittersweet, but I think it's a way for fans to revisit him."

Brewster told “Cosmopolitan for Latinas” that saying good-bye to Walker, who plays her on-screen love, was one of the hardest things she ever had to do.
"It's the most difficult, intense thing I've ever been through. Just yesterday, I had a moment where I thought, Oh, my God, I'm never going to feel the way I felt when I hugged him,” she said.” We shared so many years of friendship, and he embraced life so much. The thing about Paul is he said hello to everybody. He didn't see people as different."
The film’s new trailer will be released at a special trailer launch event at Universal Studios on Nov. 1 in Los Angeles.
"I think just the fact that they can outdo the last one because the stunts were so insane," Brewster said. "But I think people are already commenting because every day seven seconds [of the trailer] are released. People are like 'Did I really see a car jump out of a plane?' I mean it's crazy."
