Yesterday was the long-awaited release of the latest Fast and Furious movie: 'Fate of the Furious'!

But what was really cool about the 8th movie in the franchise was the touch of Maori culture.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson spent part of his childhood living in New Zealand, and his mother is of Samoan heritage. In Fate of The Furious, The Rock has brought part of his culture into the film with a haka!

The scene shows a soccer team of girls performing the haka, led by The Rock, before their soccer match.

The haka was actually blessed by Maori elders in New Zealand prior to filming.

So cool to see the haka on a big international movie franchise!
