Zendaya is speaking out about her role in the next “Dune” movie.
The actress played Chani in the hit sci-fi flick, but some fans were left disappointed after her character wasn’t introduced until the second-half of the film.
When asked about the upcoming sequel, which is set for release in 2023, Zendaya told Deadline, “Well, I can be there for longer, which is cool.”
She continued, “I want to grow with the characters I play, and with the people that I get to learn from. Anybody who has read the books knows there’s so much more to explore and deal with.”
The 25-year-old “Euphoria” star also discussed the perks that came with having a smaller role in the first film.
“What was cool for me not having been around for much of the first shoot was getting to see the movie from a completely fresh perspective,” she shared. “Because I hadn’t seen the sets and the scenes for most of the movie. And watching it felt like just the beginning of this story.”
