Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga: Release Date, Cast, Plot, Trailer, and Everything You Need to Know

Though many praised the action film Mad Max: Fury Road, many at the time felt that Tom Hardy’s portrayal of the eponymous road warrior was overshadowed by Charlize Theron’s Furiosa. Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, a prequel film about the breakthrough character slated to be one of the most anticipated new films of 2024, will leave little room for misunderstanding.

George Miller, director of 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road, has been hinting at a Furiosa film for almost as long, but it took nine years for the filmmaker to bring the idea to the big screen. Even if Fury Road was likewise a laborious process, here’s hoping that the painstaking method of perfection pays out in the end.

Who is in Furiosa, when is it coming out, and what is the plot? Here is all the information you want on Furiosa: All the makings of a Mad Max trilogy are here.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Release Date

The original release date for Mad Max: Furiosa was October 23, 2023, according to WB Pictures. Nevertheless, the release was delayed until 2024 by the firm in September 2021. May 24, 2024 is the official date for release that the corporation has established. In 2024, the film may have its world debut at the Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 14th to the 25th.

The film will also be released in theaters by WB Pictures. Mad Max: Furiosa may be released on HBO Max after its theatrical run. But whether or not the film will be available to watch is unclear.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Plot

In the midst of global destruction, the Warlord Dementus abducts Furiosa, a little girl, from the Green Place of Many Mothers and gives her over to a Biker Horde. While the Citadel is besieged by two Tyrants vying for control, Furiosa endures a series of trials as she devises a plan to get home across the Wasteland.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Cast

Since Furiosa: A Mad Max is a prequel, a younger actress was needed to play the character, even though Charlize Theron was fantastic as Furiosa in Fury Road. In their place, Anya Taylor-Joy is stepping up. After her breakthrough appearance in 2015’s The Witch, Taylor-Joy went on to star in several critically acclaimed films and television shows, including: Split, Thoroughbreds, Emma, The Queen’s Gambit, Last Night in Soho, The Northman, Peaky Blinders, The Menu, and even voiced Princess Peach in Super Mario Bros.

It has also been reported that Chris Hemsworth will play the evil Warlord Dementus. Though he has appeared in The Cabin in the Woods, Rush, Extraction, and Extraction 2, Hemsworth is most recognized for his role as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Acting as a villain isn’t something Hemsworth does very often, but he did it well in Bad Times at the El Royale (2018).

Tom Burke, who has previously been in Mank and The Wonder, is said to be playing a villain role and is another new cast member. The Organic Mechanic, played by Angus Sampson, and Rictus Erectus, played by Nathan Jones, are said to be returning from Mad Max: Fury Road.

Following his involvement in Miller’s Three Thousand Years of Longing, Indigenous Australian youngster Quaden Bayles—who is dwarfish—became famous for his heartfelt appeal against bullying and has now been confirmed by George Miller to have a role in the film.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Creators

As he continues to shape the vast Mad Max series, George Miller directed and co-wrote Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. Miller and Doug Mitchell are also involved in the production of the film.

Furiosa is returning to Fury Road with the same outstanding crew: Margaret Sixel, film editor, Colin Gibson, Ben Osmo, Lessley Vanderwalt, costume designer, composer Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg), and co-writer Nico Lathouris.The picture was shot by Simon Duggan, who is known for his work on Hacksaw Ridge.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Trailer

Warner Bros. didn’t share the official trailer for Furiosa online; CCXP’s panel revealed it first. The teaser introduces us to Taylor-Joy’s youthful Furiosa, who has her long, flowing hair at the start of the film but eventually cuts it off (as shown in the last scene), promising an epic action film.

In the course of her journey home, she battles an unrecognizable Chris Hemsworth as the monster Dementus and tries to save a child’s life.

Beyond giving fans their first glimpse of Furiosa’s cast in character, the debut trailer for the film refrains from disclosing many significant narrative points. While the trailer does reveal that the film takes set 45 years after the end of civilization, it also drops clues about other significant events in Furiosa’s early existence. Among her vows is the one to go home no matter what, which she keeps until the events of Fury Road.

Though we don’t yet know what danger he represents, the Furiosa video does show Chris Hemsworth’s new nemesis in action. In addition, there is a younger Joe who is immortal, although he is still using the same breathing device that he used in Fury Road.

Overarchingly, the film seems to be a comprehensive continuation of the Mad Max world established in the previous film, with an abundance of high-octane plot twists.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Filming Locations

The news that filming will take place in the state in 2021 took advantage of financial advantages offered by both the federal and New South Wales governments. The movie will be shot “all over NSW,” according to Miller, and Broken Hill will be one of the locations.

Filming had to take place in Namibia, Africa, instead of Broken Hill, since the exceptional rains made the scenery too green. This was in regards to Fury Road, the previous film.

Where to watch Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga?

The Mad Max film Furiosa: A Saga will hit cinemas all around the globe. Additionally, the film is anticipated to be accessible on streaming services such as HBO Max at a later date, while the exact release date is yet TBD.
