The first trailer for the movie Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga was released at the CCXP event on Thursday by Warner Bros. Furiosa serves as the prequel to Mad Max Fury Road.
At the CCXP Brazil event, the main cast of the movie including Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth were present. Also, the director of the movie, George Miller was part of the panel.
As we know Furiosa is a prequel to Fury Road, therefore understanding when it happens is important. George in the interview with CCXP has given the exact timeline as to when the prequel happens before Mad Max Fury Road.
In the interview, he mentioned that Furiosa takes place 15 years before the Fury Road takes place. He further said that Furiosa will directly lead to the storyline of Mad Max Fury Road.
However, he made it clear that the movie is not about Max. It is about Furiosa and what she went through a period of 15 years in the Wasteland to become the Imperator Furiosa.
Here is an excerpt from the interview,
“Well, this story happens 15 years directly before Mad Max Fury Road. And and and it's about, it runs straight into it. And um, and Max is lurking around somewhere in this story.”
He further added,
“Uh, but uh, it's really the story of Furiosa and how she got to be, yeah. So, so it's still a lot, a lot of the film will be familiar and a lot of it's new, which we haven't seen before.”
Further in the interview, George was asked what the audience and fans of Mad Max: Fury Road can expect new from Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. To which he responded,
“Well, well, the biggest thing is the timeline. When you have this is 15 years of the story of all the people in the Wasteland through the experience of Furiosa. Fury Road happened over 3 days and two nights. So, this is the story where you get to know in much more detail who these people were. It wasn't on the run like it was on Fury Road.”

This is all we could get about the exact time phase at which Furiosa takes place in the Mad Max timeline. Given the exciting trailer of the movie, I hope that Furiosa lives up to the expectations of its fans.
