Warner Bros. has unveiled a new trailer for “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga”, George Miller’s prequel to “Mad Max: Fury Road”.

The prequel, which is the fifth entry in Miller’s “Mad Max” franchise, sees Anya Taylor-Joy taking on the role of Imperator Furiosa, the fierce war captain that Charlize Theron played in the 2015 action film. 

It follows a young Furiosa as she comes into her own after being taken away from the Green Place of Many Mothers and is immersed into a sinister world. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke also star in the movie.

Miller directed the prequel and co-wrote the screenplay alongside Nico Lathouris. His last entry in the franchise, “Fury Road,” starring Tom Hardy, Theron and Nicholas Hoult, took the world by storm with its immersive world-building, high-octane car stunts and stellar performances. 

The movie scored a whopping 10 nominations at the Academy Awards, including best picture, director, cinematography and visual effects. It won in the categories of film editing, sound editing, sound mixing, production design, makeup and hairstyling and costume design.

Many of the collaborators from “Fury Road” — including film editor Margaret Sixel, costume designer Jenny Beavan and composer Junkie XL — are all returning for “Furiosa.” Cinematographer Simon Dugan is taking over the sequel after “Fury Road” director of photography John Seale decided to retire after collaborating with Miller on his genie romance film “Three Thousand Years of Longing.”

“Furiosa” hits theaters on May 24, and available in IMAX version.
