As the highly anticipated sequel, “Dune 2” has revealed new developments. According to director Denis Villeneuve, in this sequel, the story of the Harkonnen family will be amplified, and the story of the entire desert planet Arrakis will enter a new phase.
Denis Villeneuve said: “It’s like a board game, and some new actors will be introduced to the film. The first film is about Paul Atreides, but this second film will focus on Harkonnen’s name. Next. I’m working with the original team, and the film will be more challenging. We know what to do and how to present it. Now that the script is written, I feel confident.”
“Dune” is based on the Hugo and Nebula award-winning works of the same name, and its status is comparable to “The Lord of the Rings”.
The narrative dimension at the cosmic level, the personal growth process at the epic level, and the complex character relationships and political wrestling have all pushed this novel to the status of a “masterpiece”.
In addition, the filming of “Dune 3” has also been put on the agenda.
Director Denis Villeneuve said: “‘Dune’ is a huge story. To respect it, I think at least three films have to be made, which is my dream, and it would be great to finish Paul Atreides’ storyline.”
According to the plan, the release time of “Dune 2” is set for October 20, 2023.
