Director Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” officially has a sequel.
On Tuesday (October 26), Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. officially announced plans to release “Dune: Part Two” on October 20, 2023 to complete the iconic sci-fi story started by Villeneuve’s “Dune” last week.
“This is just the beginning,” Legendary wrote in an announcement on Twitter. “Thank you to those who have experienced @dunemovie so far, and to those who will in the days and weeks to come. We are excited to continue the journey!”

Villenueve’s 2021 version of “Dune” takes up the late Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi book about young Duke Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) of House Atreides on the desert planet Arrakis, where he fights his family’s archrivals for the control of the planet and its Rich Spice, a fundamental resource for the universe. The new film covers only half of Herbert’s book, unlike its David Lynch-directed predecessor in 1984. Villenueve was confident enough to add “Part One” to his film, but its sequel wasn’t finished until Tuesday’s announcement. .
The Hollywood Reporter reported on the release date of “Dune: Part Two,” along with a statement from the director.
“I just received word from Legendary that we are officially moving forward with Dune: Part Two,” Villenueve said in the statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “It was a dream for me to adapt Frank Herbert’s Dune and I have the fans, cast and crew, Legendary and Warner Bros. to thank for supporting this dream. This is just the beginning.”
The new movie “Dune” opened simultaneously in theaters and on the HBO Max streaming service, earning $ 40.1 million in its opening weekend, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
