Dune: Part Two has officially started production

Denis Villeneuve's second Dune live-action adaptation is set to premiere on November 17, 2023.


One of the common criticisms about last year's Dune: Part One was that it felt like a movie that was setting up something much larger.

Dune: Part Two has some pretty big shoes to fill.

Although Denis Villeneuve did an excellent job of adapting the first half of the original novel's story, it became hard to deny the obvious. Still, this didn't stop Dune: Part One from setting a new HBO Max record and nearly topping the list of nominees at the 94th Academy Awards.

A little over half a year after Dune: Part One premiered in theaters and on HBO Max, Warner Bros. just confirmed that Part Two has started filming.

Here's the official synopsis of Dune: Part Two:

This follow-up film 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.

Denis Villeneuve is returning to direct the sequel, which Warner Bros. has delayed from its original release date to November 17.

Hopefully, Warner Bros. will not delay Dune: Part Two any further than it already has.

As we've already mentioned, the two-part Dune movies are based on a sci-fi novel written by Frank Herbert. The plan is to adopt more of the Dune novels, of which there are at least eight. The first part followed the source material closely and we can expect the sequel to do the same. But, for Warner Bros. to green light more Dune movies, Denis Villeneuve will have to prove that his works are worth investing millions of dollars and years of work on.
