I love that article Taipan, would like to read more too!

Uncle Entity, creative but too much speculation and not enough facts. It's very basic fan fiction.

You're welcome! I have a lot of other interviews/info about the series that have interesting bits of information. I might go through them and make a list of the most interesting ones, especially the ones that contribute to the MM universe and answer some questions.

I haven't read them but found a couple of links that said the books mention that a few weeks after Max had his revenge against Toecutter's gang that "the world had finally blown itself to hell a few weeks later it had seemed only fitting. He had taken off alone into the wastes and lived there ever since". Another link mentioned the Gyro Captain died in 2013 according to the novels too...maybe you guys with copies can verify?

I see we're into the Jed=Gyro thing again...

Interesting. I've read Mad Max 2 in a french version years ago. But I remember it and the translation fits perfectly.

According to your link, how died the gyro Cap ?



The french novelization is really bad, it was written by Philipe Manoeuvre from the movie. The english novelization was written from the screenplay. The two books have nothing in common.

Even the pages point out that Max left M.F.P. Police "months before" the big collapse... but remember, almost all movies in the world are creatures pretty much different from the original intentions of their creators. In this case, MM1 and MM2 seem very distant from their original concepts and earlier drafts.

Peter Burton: I expect a great mention in front page.

Everyone else: I'm adding more and more details to the timeline.


Some facts :
It's written everywhere (in intws, in several press books) that there's 2 years between MM1 and MM2. When i talked with Bertrand Cadart he explained me that George Miller told him that Mad Max was set 30/35 years from "now" (1976/77).
When I talked to Vernon Wells, he explained me that his character was a Vietnam veteran.
It's sure that there was no nuclear war before MM2, Terry Hayes, George Miller told this in many interviews, and there's no mention of that anywhere in the 2 early drafts I read, in the preambule or in any pressbook.

More, the Mad Max 2 introduction show old footage, I think, even if there's mention of a war in Iran in many sources, you can see the prologue as a metaphor, the petrol war started a long time before, it has already started. Remember what was the political situation when they written the screenplay...

My conclusion is that you cannot really write a chronology, just a nice fan fiction that suits you, they didn't give a shit about that, it's more metaphorical than a real depiction of events. It's just a landscape for the movies, it's not important, what's important is the metaphore. The three movies are differents. They show three differents situation. And this was the result of the ideas, the locations and the money they had at the time.

Last thing, when you say "they seemed very different from the early drafts" did you read them ? Because i have the MM1 scipt, and 2 different MM2 scripts, and what you can say it's the same movies, it's just way shorter (dialogues & scenes were cut, but what remains is pretty accurate)

To be honest as for Phillippe Manoeuvre's Novel for Mad Max 2. Just Forget it! It's full of Errors and contains some material that has nothing to do with the film. This guy is just a Journalist and even names he mentions are wrong. Bubba Zanardi? and the car Max is using is a Ford Mustang! Just don't read it: it's ultimate crap. The novel was just written by a fan that does not know what he writes. Keep away from that book. I bought it, read it and S* it's terribly annoying and bad written.
I could probably make it on my own, but I like you kids.
