The costume designer of Dune: Part TwoJacqueline West, revealed a few details on the sequel in the works, anticipating that will explore different worlds, such as the planet Harkonnen Giedi Prime. The Dune sequel will continue Paul Atreides’ (Timothée Chalamet) journey to becoming Muad’Dib, as he spends more time with Chani (Zendaya) and the Fremen tribe.
During a masterclass at the Doha Film Institute (via Deadline), Jacqueline West explained the differences between the first and second Dune, teasing the exploration of many worlds briefly introduced in the first film:
“In the second part, you really immerse yourself in the different worlds of Dune. Let’s see what the world of the emperor is like. We go to his planet. We spend a lot of time on Giedi Prime, the planet Harkonnen. We spend a lot of time in the world of Stellan Skarsgård (Vladimir Harkonnen). Feyd-Rautha, brilliantly played by Austin Butler, is also a part of it and it’s fantastic. All worlds expand. It was about creating three separate, different-looking worlds and also revisiting the Bene Gesserit, with their costumes which almost make them look like Egyptian mummies. I think it’s visually stunning, the sets, the cinematography and the concepts.”.
