What is Dune Part Two About?

It shows the Emperor of the universe, Shaddam Carino. It shows the tensions between Chani and Paul and explains the story’s theme as the political and religious messiahs. There are no spoilers, just the background story to prepare us for part two. Lady Jessica gives birth to a daughter named Alia, with Bene Gesserit’s abilities. We can’t spoil all the twists and turns, but the rest of the outline provided by the previous half of the novel lends itself to a thrilling, more plot-driven story. “It will be another journey in the desert again,” Villeneuve says. “It’s the journey where Paul and his mother, Lady Jessica, make contact with the culture of fremen and meet with the fremen. It’s the journey of Paul against the enemy. It is a movie which will be more cinematic.”
