Johnson spoke to THR about why it was important to him to represent his culture on the big screen.

"This is why this movie is really deeply personal to me because I am proudly half black and half Samoan, and we were able to showcase one of my cultures in this movie and it was very special because never before has a movie of this size and scale, in the history of Hollywood have we ever showcased this tiny island and this culture of Samoa and I’m very proud of that," he said.
