The film was shot in appropriately desert-filled regions across Jordan, Abu Dhabi, and Budapest.
Dune: Part Two was originally greenlit back in 2021 not long after the first film premiered in September of that year, due to its success.
The film sequel was originally split into two due to the novel being “too complex” for a single adaptation, according to Villeneuve.
Here’s a brief blurb on the sequel:
“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.”
The latest game adaptation for the series is Dune: Awakening, which is planned for Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5.
Dune: Part Two is set to premiere on November 3rd, 2023.
