MANILA, Philippines—Missed the first Dune? Warner Bros. has you covered with a “catch-up video” to bring you up to speed before diving into Dune: Part Two, the highly anticipated cinematic adventure of the year.

Dune: Part Two seamlessly picks up where the first movie left off, and for Timothée Chalamet, reprising his role as Paul Atreides, returning to this vast world was a dream come true. “It was a dream to revisit the world of ‘Dune,’ reuniting with castmates I had an incredible working experience with previously,” says Chalamet.

“Additionally, witnessing their characters evolve, like Chani’s, and collaborating with new, exceptionally talented actors such as Austin Butler and Florence Pugh, whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with before. And, of course, witnessing Denis bring his complete vision to life.”

Filming ‘Dune: Part Two’ far exceeded any expectations I had. Being on those sets, surrounded by incredibly talented individuals in every department… I was in awe.”

The ranks of Arrakis see new additions as Austin Butler and Florence Pugh step in to play Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen and Princess Irulan, respectively. Butler, an avid fan of the first film since his teenage years, couldn’t be happier about joining the cast. “Watching the first film evoked the same emotions as when I first watched ‘Apocalypse Now.’ I knew right then that I wanted to be part of the sequel. I feel incredibly fortunate,” Butler expresses.
