Having already exploded into theaters with technicolor drama, George Miller’s Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is about to be racing into fans’ homes with the newly-announced streaming release date looming large. But even more exciting is the news of the different versions of the movie that are on their way for fans wanting to own the movie on disc. Keep reading for all the details.

When was the Furiosa release date in theaters?

The Mad Max: Fury Road prequel hit US cinemas on May 24, 2024, almost one year later than its original planned release date of June 23, 2023. Australia, meanwhile, got it one day earlier, May 23. Fitting, considering it was shot in the country back in 2022.

When is Furiosa coming to streaming?

Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment has announced that Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga will be released for premium digital ownership on June 25, 2024, priced at $29.99; on the same day, the movie will be available to rent for $24.99 on participating platforms, which include Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, YouTube, and AppleTV.

As of writing, it’s not known when Furiosa will debut on Max (Warner Bros. Discovery's streaming platform). Major releases on this streamer have been harder to predict versus Disney+ and other services, as they're heavily dependent on the box office performance of each movie. Perhaps the best marker here would be to note that a movie like Dune Part 2 went from premium VOD to Max in the space of just over a month — it debuted April 16 as a premium purchase or rental, and then May 21 on Max. Judging by this, it’s reasonable to expect Furiosa to show up on Max at the end of July or beginning of August 2024.

What was that about Furiosa being released on disc?

Here’s where things get fun: Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga will be available to own on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD on August 13, 2024, with both the 4K and Blu-ray editions having extra features. The 4K UHD disc will have five featurettes:

  • Highway to Valhalla: In Pursuit of Furiosa
  • Stowaway to Nowhere
  • Metal Beasts & Holy Motors
  • Darkest Angel: Anya Taylor-Joy as Furiosa
  • Motorbike Messiah: Chris Hemsworth as Dementus

The Blu-ray will have the first two of those.

Additionally, WBD plans to release a five-movie Mad Max collection on 4K UHD later in the year, collecting Mad Max (1979), Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) and Furiosa in one inevitably dirty, impressive package — but that’s not all: WBD is also reportedly planning a Black and Chrome edition of Furiosa for release later in the year, featuring a new introduction from director George Miller, too.

For those who don’t remember 2017’s Mad Max: Fury Road Black & Chrome release, it was a remastered version of Fury Road removing the color and transforming it into a visually stunning masterpiece that felt almost like a different movie from the color edition:

Details about the Furiosa: Black and Chrome edition will be forthcoming, per WBD. We can’t wait.
