Now that Dune: Part Two has officially been confirmed, fans want to know how many more Dune movies there are to look forward to.
If you haven't seen it yet, Dune is a sci-fi epic which stars Timothee Chalamet as Paul Atreides, a young prince who's gifted with powers he doesn't quite yet understand or have control of.
Paul and his parents, Lady Jessica (Rebecca Fergusson) and Leito Atreides (Oscar Issaac), are sent by The Emperor to colonise the most dangerous planet in the universe, Arrakis, which is rich in 'spice' - the most precious resource in existence.
Without spoiling the film, there are twists and turns along the way as other forces invade Arrakis and explode into conflict with House Atreides, leaving Paul and his mother, both gifted with the same powers, fighting for the future of their people.
This 2021 adaptation of Frank Herbert's bestselling books also features Zendaya as Chani, a Freman who keeps appearing in Paul's visions, Josh Brolin (Avengers: Infinity War) as Gurney Halleck and Jason Momoa (Aquaman) as Duncan Idaho, who both train Paul in combat.
Dune was directed by Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049) and filmed in various locations around the world - the scenes on the unforgiving planet of Arrakis were filmed in the desert in the Middle East.
How many Dune movies will there be?
Dune: Part Two is now officially confirmed and we know that Warner Bros. originally agreed to a two-part movie approach. But what about beyond that?
There's certainly plenty of material to make more Dune movies, as it's based off Frank Herbert's 15-book series of the same name. But again, it all depends on the popularity of the second movie (after the first de-throned No Time To Die from the top of the box office chart) and cast availability and budget to produce more.

Thank you to those who have experienced @dunemovie so far, and those who are going in the days and weeks ahead. We're excited to continue the journey! pic.twitter.com/mZj68Hnm0A
Dune: Part One adapts roughly half of Herbert's first Dune book and fans have said the movie ends rather abruptly. But that's because the other half is yet to come in the sequel.

Warner Bros. is also working on a spin-off TV series (Dune: The Sisterhood) , which will act as the prequel to Dune: Part One. So we could be seeing more TV series come instead of, if not as well as, more films.
