Dune sequel: Here’s what Dune Part Two will be about if it happens

Denis Villenueve’s Dune ends on a pretty major cliffhanger — just like you might expect from something with “Part 1” in the title screen. But while this movie’s already really good, it’s also really slow and contemplative and doesn’t technically have much action. That won’t be a problem for Dune Part 2 — Let’s say Denis Villeneuve, director, gets the opportunity.

If DunePerhaps if it was a superhero movie it would include a post credit scene that might hint at the future. However, this does not happen. So, if you can’t wait the two or more years it may take to get Dune Part 2It is possible to do so, all you have to do is ask Now, here’s what the sequel will be about if it ever happens.

[Ed. note: This story contains spoilers for Dune Part 1 and almost certainly spoilers for a Dune sequel.]

Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and his mother join the Fremen, and Paul quickly unites the Fremen tribes as their fabled messiah. He eventually begins leading raids against the Harkonnen’s spice production fields, almost completely stalling their operation on Arrakis. Paul also gets much closer to Chani (Zendaya), who takes on a bigger role in the story and Paul’s life.

Meanwhile, Paul’s mother Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) undergoes process of becoming a Reverend Mother of the Fremen by drinking the Water of Life. Jessica is able to survive the poisonous liquid and gains all the memories of her foremothers. However, since she neglected to mention that she was pregnant, Paul’s unborn sister Alia gains that knowledge too. Alia was born soon after. She is now as intelligent and as capable as an adult.

With Paul cutting significantly into the galaxy’s supply of spice, the Emperor himself has no choice but the join his forces with Baron Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård) to try to kill Paul and wipe out the Fremen, resulting a massive battle. We won’t give the complete ending away here, and you’ll just have to wait for the movie to find out (hopefully). Read the book instead!

While there’s no official word from Warner Bros. just yet, the latest reports do seem optimistic that a sequel will actually happen. But at the moment, it’s still unclear if Paul, Jessica, and Chani will return to the screen.
