March 19 (UPI) -- Warner Bros. Pictures is teasing the new film Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.

The studio shared a trailer for the post-apocalyptic action movie Tuesday featuring Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth.

Furiosa is a spinoff and prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) and the fifth film in the Mad Max franchise. The film is written by George Miller and Nico Lathouris and directed by Miller.

Taylor-Joy plays a young Furiosa, portrayed by Charlize Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road.

Furiosa provides an origin story for Furiosa (Taylor-Joy), who is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers as a child and falls into the hands of a Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus (Hemsworth).

Alyla Brown, Tom Burke and Lachy Hulme also star.
