Start your engines, round up your War Boys, and get ready to ride eternal, shiny and chrome: George Miller is roaring back into the Mad Max world with Furiosa, his long-awaited prequel about Fury Road’s beloved breakout character. In 2015, Miller finally unleashed the odyssey he’d long dreamed of making – and now, he’s delving deep into Imperator Furiosa’s mysterious past, with Anya Taylor-Joy taking the wheel from Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth screeching into the desert as deranged new Wasteland Warlord, Dementus. Buckle up: the summer’s wildest ride is here.

The new issue of Empire straps in for a breakneck journey through Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga – hopping aboard with Miller, Taylor-Joy, Hemsworth and more to get the inside story on a film that fans have waited nearly 10 long years for. Inside, we dig into the origins of Furiosa’s long road to the screen, meet its array of new marauders, and explore all the on-set mayhem that Miller once more unleashed to follow up cinema’s greatest petrol-fume-fuelled trip. It’s a world-exclusive deep-dive, packed with brand new interviews and never-before-seen images – all for a film due to set the screen ablaze this May.

The newsstand cover sees Anya Taylor-Joy ready for action as Furiosa, with Dementus standing atop his flame-spewing monster truck.
