Furiosa Plot Synopsis Offers First Details About the Spin-Off
It's been over seven years since the release of the previous Mad Max franchise film, Mad Max: Fury Road, and ever since its release fans have anticipated a Furiosa-centric story. As things slowly came together over time, there was a promise that a prequel story would be told, however, the sense of mystery and ambiguity surrounding its official plot has made it hard to effectively join the hype train to the fullest capacity. Now, Warner Bros. has finally dropped the first major synopsis for Mad Max: Furiosa and we have a little more content to celebrate!
According to Warner Bros., the upcoming prequel film teases, "As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great 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."
Though many names are attached and not all characters are currently known, the mention of The Immortan Joe suggests a return for the character from Mad Max: Fury Road (played by the late Hugh Keays-Byrne). The upcoming prequel includes Anya Taylor-Joy, who was tapped to play the titular character Furiosa, opposite Avengers and Ghostbusters star Chris Hemsworth (a potential Warlord Dementus contender?) Tom Burke, Nathan Jones, and Angus Sampson (all currently confirmed) with more likely to be revealed between now, and the film's eventual 2024 release.
Barring any other date changes or theatrical shifts, Mad Max: Furiosa is slated to arrive in theaters on May 24, 2024, so even though we have more information to utilize, it's still quite a ways away. Regardless, we'll be waiting!
