The action-packed trailer for Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga stars Anya Taylor-Joy as the warrior previously played by Charlize Theron.

Fans of the saga can’t wait to discover more about this adventure exploring the origins of Furiosa. In this new film, a young Furiosa is kidnapped and finds herself up against the Biker Horde, led by Dementus, played by Chris Hemsworth.

While age-defying technologies were initially planned for Charlize Theron, director George Miller had to re-evaluate the idea due to the challenges posed by the use of CGI throughout the production.

Charlize expressed her sadness at not being able to reprise her beloved role, but stressed that there was no animosity between her and Anya Taylor-Joy.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga opens in cinemas on May 24.
