In today’s Dune 2 trailer, Paul Atriedes (Timothée Chalamet) and Chani (Zendaya) connect, finding common ground in their fight for the future. The footage introduces new characters, including Princess Irulan Corrino (Florence Pugh) and the villain Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen. Once the enemy faction realizes Atriedes is still alive, they’ll stop at nothing to bury him beneath the sands. The Dune 2 trailer reacquaints us with Stilgar (Javier Bardem), who wants Paul to prove he’s the leader they need to win the day. Paul answers his request by riding a sandworm through a desolate wasteland, sure to look epic on IMAX screens.

Denis Villeneuve directed from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts based on Herbert’s novel. The film is produced by Mary Parent, Cale Boyter, Villeneuve, Tanya Lapointe, and Patrick McCormick. The executive producers are Josh Grode, Herbert W. Gains, Jon Spaihts, Thomas Tull, Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, and Kim Herbert, with Kevin J. Anderson as a creative consultant.

Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson are joined in the cast by fellow returning Dune: Part One cast members Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Charlotte Rampling, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Josh Brolin, as well as new additions Austin Butler, Tim Blake Nelson, Christopher Walken, Florence Pugh, Souheila Yacoub, and Léa Seydoux.
