The saga continues as award-winning filmmaker Denis Villeneuve embarks on “Dune: Part Two,” the next chapter of Frank Herbert’s celebrated novel Dune, with an expanded all-star international ensemble cast. The film, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2021’s six-time Academy Award-winning “Dune.”
The returning cast includes Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, and Stellan Skarsgard. Newcomers include Florence Pugh, Lea Seydoux, Austin Butler, Tim Blake Nelson, and Christopher Walken.
“Dune: Part Two” will explore the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.
Dune is the story of Paul Atreides, the son of the Duke of Atreides. He’s a brilliant and gifted young man that is born into a great destiny beyond his understanding. His family travels to the most dangerous planet in the galaxy, Arrakis. That’s where the majority of the spice in the galaxy comes from. There, the Harkonnen House ambushes House Atreides, and Paul and his mother Jessica are forced into hiding. There, Paul learns his true place in the galaxy among the people known as the Fremen.
Dune: Part Two follows up where the first left off and introduces characters like Princess Irulan (Florence Pugh), Feyd-Rautha (Austin Butler), and Lady Margot (Lea Seydoux). Characters that didn’t get as big of a spotlight in the first film get a much bigger look here like Baron Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgard) and Glossu Rabban (Dave Bautista).
