The Sequel To Denis Villeneuve's Dune Has Officially Been Confirmed

Dune is getting a sequel, the production company behind Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi fantasy adaptation has announced.

Legendary and Warner Bros. have announced that Dune: Part Two will carry on the story from the first, and adapt the rest of the original novel, written by Frank Herbert.

The first film is only just out in cinemas, but it has received praise from viewers and critics, who have also praised Villeneuve's vision and the overall aesthetic of the movie.

Legendary tweeted: "This is only the beginning... 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!"

To be fair, this has been rumoured for a while now, but we've only just received the official confirmation.

As far back as 2020, Villeneuve said that he'd only come on board to tell the whole tale - of which there is a lot to pack in - if they could make more than one.

He said: "The story is so rich and complex that, in order to be faithful to the book, we'll need to make at least two movies,

"That was a deal right at the start."

Furthermore, the title card for the first film quite literally said Dune: Part One on it, so it's not as if this hasn't been coming.

If you've already seen the film, it will also come as no surprise that there's more to be made, although we won't get into that to avoid spoilers.

The film stars Timothee Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, and Jason Momoa, and it released on October 22 worldwide.

Speaking just days before that release date in cinemas and on HBO Max, WarnerMedia executive Ann Sarnoff said: "Will we have a sequel to 'Dune'? If you watch the movie you see how it ends. I think you pretty much know the answer to that."

It's expected that most of the original cast will return for the next instalment, as well as the director, so it should just be a simple continuation of the first movie.

Either way, it's exciting news for those who have seen the first flick.
