Why is Han still alive in Fast and the Furious Five?

Some websites are discussing that the “Fast and the Furious” series wasn’t shown in chronological order. In the ending of the first movie, and watched after credits you know where Vin Diesels character ends up. “2 Fast 2 Furious” takes place with Paul Walker and if you actually watch the DVD for “The Fast and The Furious” they actually have a small bonus feature which shows how Paul Walkers character ends up in Miami. None the less Tokyo Drift comes out next, and this is where the series begins to get out of order. While 3 was expected to be the last one, they continued with a 4th installment picking back up with Vin Diesels character due to the overall success of the series. If you have seen Tokyo drift then you are aware that Han does die. Next is “Fast and Furious”, this one is technically after “2 Fast 2 Furious” which also reintroduces Vin Diesels character from the first one excluding the cameo in Tokyo Drift. Originally the 4th installment was planned to have all the main characters for the previous 3 including Han, but was scrapped and rewritten due to inconsistency of the story. Having run away after the first one and escaping to mexico like planned, Vin Diesel ends up running through south america some. And in this time frame is where he ended up meeting Han. Now Han does plan on heading into Tokyo which is said in the movie a bit after the beginning some. Last is “The Fast Five” which finally takes place after the “Fast and Furious” which picks up right after the ending to the 4th installment. So the correct order of the series is as follows.
Release Order
1 The Fast and the Furious
2 2 Fast 2 Furious
3 Tokyo Drift
4 Fast & Furious
5 Fast Five

Chronological order
1.The Fast and the Furious
2.Fast 2 Furious
3.Fast & Furious
4.Fast Five
5.Tokyo Drift

However, some people speculate that Han may have survived Tokyo Drift.  Me, I just think the writers got sentimental and wanted to do a barbecue get together movie starring all of the cast.
