Fans rejoice! Variety writer Ellise Shafer wrote an article that announced that Dune: Part Two, would be releasing two weeks ahead of its anticipated premiere date. So instead of dropping on November 17, 2023, fans can expect the film to drop on November 3 instead.
The first installment of Dune was released in October 2021, was awarded six Oscars, and grossed $400 million in the box office, according to Shafer. This second film will follow the second half of Frank Herbert’s novel.
Frank Herbert originally wrote Dune in 1956. The story follows Paul Atreides, a young nobleman from house Atreides who is the chosen hero of prophecy. This is the first novel in the original six book series, though other writers have added their own books to the Dune universe. The following books continue Paul’s journey and how his tale eventually ends. Additionally, the Dune franchise also spawned several short story collections, comic books, a previous film adaptation, and two television series adaptations. To say that this universe is prolific is certainly putting things mildly!
We’ll have to see what this next installment holds for old and new fans!
