Dune: Part Two | Official Trailer

The main part of the trailer there is fairly self-explanatory. It’s Paul attempting to ride a sandworm for the first time. In Fremen culture—the culture that Paul has adopted to survive on Arrakis—this is a huge rite of passage, and seeing him succeed brings joy to many. That’s also because many believe he could be a mythical savior they’ve been hearing about and waiting to meet for centuries.


You also get some glimpses here of Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, the cunning daughter of the Emperor (played by Christopher Walken, who isn’t in the trailer). There’s also Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen, a deadly warrior who might inherit Arrakis if his people aren’t overthrown by Paul first, and Léa Seydoux as Lady Margot, a Bene Gesserit who advises the Emperor.

They’re the new cast members but, as you can plainly see, Javier Bardem’s Stilgar is back, this time playing a much bigger, more important role. The same goes for Zendaya’s Chani, who was barely in the first film, as well as Josh Brolin’s Gurney Halleck, Rebecca Ferguson’s Lady Jessica, and more.


Basically, this time, we see Paul fulfill his destiny and get revenge for what the Harkonnens did to his family, and what may soon be, his planet: Dune.
