Miller stated Thunderdome is set 13/15 years since RW. The official Thunderdome magazine stated 18 years. Thunderdome is VERY distant from RW. Just look at the Waiting Ones. They came after. Look at their ages.

No way the Nuclear Exchange happened before Mad Max 1. It has no sense whatsoever.

The Mad Max 1 novelization is based on early drafts of the story, and it shows. The Mad Max 2 novelization is also based on an earlier draft of the screenplay, when costumes and locations didn't exist. Those two novelizations are alternate. The only novelization faithful to what you see on screen is Thunderdome.

At the very beginning of the Thunderdome screenplay, it is stated that the last time Max saw civilization was "20 years ago".

If you want more backstory to MM2, look no further.

Very interesting read, thank you! :D

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.

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 ?


Mentioned he died "felling wood"? Not sure on that one.

Taipan thanks for posting those pages! :D

I'm not sure I'd read it that way. By 'big collapse' do you mean the nukes, the last gasp of the western world? It seems the 'collapse' of society had already happened as he was 'one of the last to leave'.

Found it:
The First Two movies are NOT post nuclear.
Here's a scan of an interview with George Miller as published in Omni Screen Flights Screen Fantasies: The future according to SF cinema by Danny Peary.
The book is from 1984 and in the same interview Miller says that the first 2 movies are set about 15 years from then.

Thunderdome retroactively changed that, and the whole timeline was "rearranged" to accomodate a new scenario. My timeline nailed it.

Well, the burden of proof is on you. Do you have any evidence that the series was retroactively changed?
BTW, that interview was conducted after MMBT was written.
