'Dune: Part 2' Is Officially Happening: Release Date, Cast

10/26/2021

In what feels like the inevitable, Dune: Part Two has officially been green-lit by Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment. And the exciting announcement also included the Dune: Part Two release date. The first part of Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic hit theaters and HBO Max on Oct. 22. It had a whopping $40 million opening weekend in domestic box offices. And its HBO Max opening weekend viewership was also in the millions.

Villeneuve always planned on making multiple Dune movies. In fact, he wanted to film Dune: Part One and Dune: Part Two back to back. But a sequel was dependent upon the film’s box office performance. And now, his Dune dreams are becoming a reality.

‘Dune: Part Two’ release date

Legendary announced Dune: Part Two on Twitter on Oct. 26.

“This is only the beginning,” Legendary’s tweet said. “Thank you to those who have experienced @dunemovie so far, and those who are going in the days and weeks ahead. We’re excited to continue the journey!”

Legendary and Warner Bros. confirmed the Dune: Part Two release date will be Oct. 20, 2023, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Villeneuve shared his delight in a statement. He said:

“I just received news from Legendary that we are officially moving forward with Dune: Part Two. It was a dream of mine to adapt Frank Herbert’s Dune and I have the fans, the cast, and crew, Legendary and Warner Bros. to thank for supporting this dream. This is only the beginning.”

Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin, Zendaya, Stellan Skarsgård, Javier Bardem, and more starred in Dune: Part One. Most of the cast should be returning for the sequel.
