How Much Time Has Passed Since Part One?

How Much Time Has Passed Since Part One? 2

When Denis Villeneuve took on the daring effort to bring Frank Herbert’s novel to life, it was under the condition that he wasn’t going to do it as a single sitting. Speaking to Vanity Fair in 2020, the director explained, «I would not agree to make this adaptation of the book with one single movie. The world is too complex. It’s a world that takes its power in details.» He’s not wrong.

With the gap between it and «Dune: Part One» similar to that between «The Fellowship of the Ring» and «The Two Towers» in the «Lord of the Rings» trilogy, «Dune: Part Two» not only makes it easier for audiences to get up to speed but also strengthens the experience of watching the pair of epic pictures together. Just like Peter Jackson’s mammoth Middle-earth endeavor, Villeneuve’s «Dune» duology will be flawless back-to-back viewing in the future.

«Dune: Part Two» should also tide us over until the director gets around to his proposed third film, «Dune: Messiah,» if at all. Speaking at an event held at a movie theater in South Korea (via TongTongCulture), Villeneuve said, «I don’t know exactly when I will go back to Arrakis. I might make a detour before just to go away from the sand. For my mental sanity, I might do something in between, but my dream would be to go a last time on this planet that I love.» One bit of spice at a time.
