Based on the characters by Bryon Kennedy and George Miller, the upcoming film is set before the events of Fury Road take place, and from the teaser, it looks bomb, as this prequel will be all about Chris Hemsworth versus Furiosa versus Immortan Joe. The film will focus on the life of the impressive and loved character of Furiosa before she was kidnapped from the Green Place of Many Mothers and her journeys as she tries to figure out her way back home because she remembers her mother’s last word asking her to find her way back home.
Imperator Furiosa is a fictional character first portrayed by Charlize Theron and Anya Taylor-Joy [the younger version], who works as a war captain under Immortan Joe but turns against him after she decides to free his five wives. Furiosa is a moral and strong-willed leader and warrior who takes the initiative to save the five wives from Immortan Joe while working under him without care for her well-being or a desire for a reward. Due to her relationship with Max, Furiosa returns to Citadel and ends up killing Immortan Joe, thus providing a haven for the five wives he had and the citizens of Citadel, thus making her one of the most loved characters in the Mad Max saga. During one of her interviews, Charlize, the actor who played Furiosa, revealed that originally, Furiosa was supposed to be one of the wives of the Imperator but was discarded due to her being infertile because her character was made for one thing. After a while, Furiosa was credited with being a feminist with a positive action hero trait and a mechanical left arm that she got after she lost her arm while serving Immortan Joe during one of the battles.
The trailer begins with the adult version of Anya Taylor Joy’s character Furiosa walking away from her bike, looking out into the wasteland, followed by a voiceover from her mom stating, “No matter what, find your way back home.” Then, we get to see what Furiosa’s home was before she was snatched. The film will focus on Furiosa’s life before she was kidnapped from the Green Place of Many Mothers, her home by the Bike Horde led by Warlord Dementus, and the battle between the two warlords for dominance over the world. During the time the two tyrant lords will fight for dominance over the world, Furiosa will be working on a plan to make her way back home while she survives through many trials before she meets Max Rockatansky to become a moral leader with a tough past that shaped her into the woman she is today. The film chronicles the journey of a young Furiosa into becoming a strong feminist leader after her separation from her family and being thrust into an unfamiliar environment to work under Immortan Joe.
The filming of the action-adventure movie began on June 1, 2022, and wrapped up on November 3, 2022, with Australia as the prime location. Known for its endless golden beaches, sporting hubs, and diverse culture, New South Wales, a state worth visiting in the southeast region of Australia, was used by the production crew of Furiosa to film the entire movie. Similarly to other parts of the Mad Max Saga, the prequel was filmed in New South Wales, and some of the locations used by the production crew include Melrose Park, Broken Hill, Kurnell, Silverton, and Disney Studios.
