Warner Bros Release “Furiosa” Trailer, The High-Octane Prequel to “Mad Max: Fury Road”
2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road was one of the biggest, action-packed adventures to hit theaters with some of the most exciting car chase and demolition sequences caught on film. Now, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga will be coming to cinemas in 2024 to tell the tale of another post-apocalyptic survivor.
Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit) will star as a young Furiosa, fifteen years before the events of Fury Road, which featured Charlize Theron’s portrayal of the character. Joining Taylor-Joy is Chris Hemsworth, Tom Burke, Nathan Jones, Angus Sampson, and Quaden Bayles.
According to the film’s plot, audiences will learn the story of Furiosa who was “snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and into the hands of a Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.”
Very much like the events of Fury Road and previous Mad Max films, the Furiosa trailer reveals a plethora of dystopian, wild, and ferocious vehicles all built for battle and speed.

Written, Directed, and Produced by Mad Max originator George Miller, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that a story focused on the character Furiosa was born before Fury Road was ever made. However, the Furiosa film was delayed due to conflicts between Miller and Warner Bros. over profits of the Fury Road film.
“Miller now turns the page again with an all-new original, standalone action adventure that will reveal the origins of the powerhouse character from the multiple Oscar-winning global smash “Mad Max: Fury Road,” Warner Bros said in a statement.
Miller had originally wanted Charlize Theron to reprise her role as Furiosa for the prequel through CGI to make her look younger, but the technology was not as sophisticated in 2020 to make it look believable.
