Some official Dune: Part Two photos from Warner Bros. and Legendary’s highly-anticipated continuation to 2021’s action sci-fi movie have been revealed through Vanity Fair, featuring a few of the new cast members who will be joining Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya in the next installment. It is currently scheduled to arrive in theaters on November 3.
The photos give fans a first look at Florence Pugh, Austin Butler, and Léa Seydoux’s respective characters — Princess Irulan, Feyd-Rautha, and Lady Margot. They also tease the sequel’s returning characters, including Chalamet’s Paul Atreides, Zendaya’s Chani, and Rebecca Ferguson’s Lady Jessica.
“This follow-up film will explore the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he units with Chani and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family,” reads the synopsis. “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.”
Dune: Part Two is once again being directed by Denis Villeneuve. The returning cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, and Stephen McKinley Henderson. Joining them is Christopher Walken as Emperor Shaddam IV, Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha, Léa Seydoux as Lady Margot, and Souheila Yacoub as Shishakli.
Upon release, the first film went on to garner critical acclaim from fans and critics alike. Earlier this year it also racked up a whopping 10 Academy Award nominations. It won six of them, including Best Original Score, Best Sound, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, and Best Visual Effects.
