Here is the official synopsis for Dune: Part Two, via Warner Bros.
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.
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.
In addition to Chalamet and Zendaya, Dune: Part Two boasts a star-studded ensemble cast that features the likes of Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling, and Javier Bardem, who are all reprising their roles from the first movie. Additionally, A-listers such as Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Christopher Walken, and Léa Seydoux have also joined the cast.
Following its release, Dune: Part One racked up ten Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, and won six: Best Cinematography, Best Sound, Best Original Score, Best Film Editing, Best Production Design, and Best Visual Effects.
The Dune franchise — based on a book series that was previously believed to be unadaptable, with David Lynch being the last to try it back in 1984 — has further enhanced Villeneuve as one of the world’s best-living directors (certainly when it comes to the science fiction genre), having previously helmed critically acclaimed projects such as Enemy, Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival, and Blade Runner 2049.
As mentioned above, Dune: Part Two hits theaters on Friday, November 3. Dune: Part One is currently streaming on HBO Max.
