Interview: Director George Miller on the furious road to making Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth star in Academy Award-winning mastermind George Miller’s Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, the much-anticipated return to the iconic dystopian world he created more than 40 years ago with the seminal Mad Max films.

Miller now turns the page again with an all-new original, standalone action adventure that will reveal the origins of the powerhouse character from the multiple Oscar-winning global smash Mad Max: Fury Road.

To coincide with the film’s global release (you can read our review here), Peter Gray sat down with the genius filmmaker as he premiered the film in Sydney, Australia to discuss the road to bringing this character’s story to fruition, what he thought couldn’t be done with the film’s effects, and being surprised by the villainous skill of Chris Hemsworth.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is screening in Australian theatres from May 23rd, 2024.
