And certainly, Brian Herbert’s endorsement will likely make a lot of those fans breathe a sigh of relief. If you’re a big fan of Dune who has been praying that the new movie is everything that you want it to be, this is a good sign. Of course, it should be remembered that the new Dune isn’t so much the “definitive adaptation” as it is half of the definitive adaptation. One of the things that Denis Villeneuve has done in an attempt to give the massive story the necessary space is that the new movie tells only part of the story of the original novel. Of course, if the first part lives up to expectations, that’s likely a good sign for the eventual follow-up as well.
