In the sequel, the relationship between Chalamet’s Paul Atreides and Zendaya’s Chani will become a much greater focus.

“The universe of Dune is a complex world of geopolitics and with tons of ecological and technological metaphors that hold up today,” Chalamet told VF. “But at the center, there’s this relationship where Chani sort of becomes a moral compass…Even to say that out loud feels kind of huge, and she’s really the humanizing, grounding force to that.”

Zendaya added of the sci-fi romance, “It was funny trying to figure out in this futuristic space talk: How do they flirt? What does that look like for a space warrior and the young duke of a planet? How do they show that they like each other? What does that even sound like? We were definitely trying to navigate that, which was funny because all of us were stumped. I think it’s just as foreign to us as it probably is to the characters.”

Meanwhile, Florence Pugh will be taking on the important role of Princess Irulan, daughter of Emperor Shaddam IV, who is being played by Chrisopher Walken.

“Her stake could not be higher because she’s afraid that her father could lose the throne, could lose everything,” Villeneuve said of Pugh’s role in the story. “When I met Florence, I was struck by her assurance, how grounded she is as a young woman, how direct, how unapologetic. She has something inherently royal about her. I will definitely believe that Florence could become, in the future, a prime minister.”

The magazine also shared photos of other new and returning stars, including Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Lea Seydoux and Austin Butler.

Talking about Austin Butler’s role as the lethal Harkonnen prince Feydh-Rautha, who will face off against Paul in the a one-on-one battle in the film, Villeneuve said, “Austin Butler brought to the screen something that would be a cross between a psychotic, sociopath serial killer and Mick Jagger.”
