The film is a follow-up to the 2021’s big screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel "Dune," (which is also the basic inspiration for George Lucas’ Star Wars saga) which was directed by Denis Villeneuve and received 10 Academy Award nominations.

In the first ‘Dune’ saga, we followed the journey of Paul Atreides played by Timothée Chalamet as he ventured to Arrakis, the universe’s most dangerous planet, along with his father Duke Leto Atreides (Played by Oscar Isaac), to secure his family's future.

"Dune: Part 2," trailer reveals that Paul teams up with Marvel star Zendaya who donned the role of blue-eyed Chani and the Fremen to seek revenge on those who destroyed his family. However, he also has to balance his love life with the fate of the universe hanging in the balance.

The Part 2 trailer showcases Paul riding a massive sandworm in the deserts of Arrakis, accompanied by Chani and the Fremen cheering him on. We also get a first look at several new appearances, including Austin Butler as Feyd Rautha Harkonnen (the nephew of Stellan Skarsgard’s Baron Harkonnen), and Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, the daughter of Christopher Walken’s Emperor Shaddam IV.

The trailer also teases an upcoming war, with Paul leading a massive Fremen army with his indigo-blue eyes, caused by consuming the spice drug (almost the same mystical spice drug from Star Wars).

At last week's CinemaCon, Chalamet spoke about his character's arc in the sequel, saying, “In the first movie, Paul Atreides is a student…we really see Paul Atreides become a leader here.”

"Dune: Part 2" also introduces several other side characters, including Lea Seydoux as Lady Margot (a Bene Gesserit), Souheila Yacoub as a Fremen warrior, and Tim Blake Nelson. The star-studded cast includes returning actors such as Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Charlotte Rampling, and Stephen McKinley Henderson.

Chalamet reunites with his "Little Women" co-star Florence Pugh in "Dune: Part 2."

"Florence is really special. She’s an incredible actor. She was incredible in ‘Dune’ — seriously incredible. She brought gravitas to the role. And I can’t believe my good fortune at this young age…between Taylor Russell in ‘Bones and All’ and Zendaya in ‘Dune.’ And Austin Butler’s in that movie too,” the ‘Bones and All’ star praised her.
