During the event, an updated title for the movie was confirmed as “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.” Taylor-Joy and Hemsworth joined Miller on stage, discussing the elaborate and monstrous vehicles designed for this new adventure, as well as giving insights into their complex characters. Hemsworth, portraying the character Dementos, described him as a brutal and violent product of the Wasteland, the desolate setting of the “Mad Max” universe.

The screenplay, co-written by Miller and Nico Lathouris, promises to uphold the franchise’s legacy of immersive world-building and high-stakes action. Miller’s previous entry, “Fury Road,” was critically acclaimed for its innovative direction and dynamic performances, earning 10 Academy Award nominations and winning six, including film editing, sound editing, and costume design.

“Furiosa” not only marks the return of Miller’s creative genius but also reunites several collaborators from “Fury Road.” Film editor Margaret Sixel, costume designer Jenny Beavan, and composer Junkie XL are all on board, with cinematographer Simon Dugan joining the team after John Seale’s retirement.

Set to race into theaters on May 24, 2024, “Furiosa” is also slated for an IMAX release, promising an even more immersive cinematic experience. The anticipation for this prequel is palpable, as fans eagerly await to witness the origins of one of the most iconic characters in the “Mad Max” universe.
