In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Miller delves into the details of the character:

“The story is the saga of Furiosa, and how she is taken from her home and spends the rest of her life trying to get back. [En] Fury Road, the story takes place over three days and two nights. “This film follows the story that leads directly to Fury Road, over 15 years.”

“It's a different animal.”explains Miller. “It has many different locations. It's an odyssey. No doubt.”

The same medium shares two new images from the film, which you find at the end of this note.
