Before we start, have y’all seen Mad Max: Fury Road yet? Because if not, you are seriously missing out. Go see it right now, then come back and talk to us, ok? Ok, good.
By now we hope you’ve seen Mad Max: Fury Road. The ferocious new installment from director George Miller’s long-dormant series is a completely bonkers, unbelievably gorgeous spectacle of practical effects, nonstop action, and wonderfully subversive storytelling. Some of us have seen it two, three times by now, and you can bet your shiny chrome life that we’ll be seeing it a few more times still. And though we knew our new Max, Tom Hardy, had signed on for three films, we can now share exclusively that those two films will in fact be… PREQUELS. Does this mean more Furiosa? Please let this mean more Furiosa.
Join Dan Casey as he explores what this news means for the franchise, what we might see from a younger Immortan Joe (spoiler alert: hair dye), and our hopes for the prequels in this Nerdist News Special Report.
