We loved the first Dune movie. Us and millions of others. Its cast, its staging, its soundtrack, and the story. Everything fit together perfectly. Hence, the second part was considered confirmed from the first time the credits rolled in the cinema.
Unfortunately, we will have to wait a bit longer to see Dune: Part II, the highly anticipated blockbuster is delayed until next spring due to the actors’ strike.
While we wait to see what Denis Villeneuve has in store for us with his adaptation of Frank Herbert’s iconic science fiction franchise, a new detail about the movie has come to light.
Is Dune Part 2 a movie for adults?
According to the MPAA movie rating website, Dune: Part Two is officially rated as “PG-13 for sequences of strong violence, some suggestive material, and brief strong language.”
While this rating doesn’t reveal much about the actual plot of the movie, it does provide a small hint of what fans can expect. It does make it clear that the movie won’t be overly violent or suggestive, allowing Warner to fill theaters with both young audiences and adults.
What is Dune: Part 2 about?
Dune: Part Two will explore the mythical journey of Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet), who joins Chani and the Fremen on a path of vengeance against the conspirators who destroyed his family.
Faced with the choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he struggles to avert a terrible future that only he can foresee. Dune: Part Two will also feature the return of Zendaya as Chani, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, and Javier Bardem as Stilgar.
Among the new characters will be Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen, Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, and Christopher Walker as Emperor Shaddam IV.
