The Dune Talk show had a break this past month, however—as you see from our homepage—there has been major movie and TV series news during that time. On this week’s episode we react to the casting of Christopher Walken as Emperor Shaddam IV in Dune: Part Two, as well as recent comments from cast members about the movie’s script and other preparations.
Then Garin, Johnny, Marcus, and Simon dive into all those exciting rumors surrounding Dune: The Sisterhood. If true, the TV series will be ramping up its production this fall! Plus, a lot more comic books are heading our way, with the continuing adaptation of the prequel trilogy. When it comes to “expanding the franchise”, what is the right approach for Dune?
This podcast (63 minutes) is available below in both video and audio formats. Enjoy and spread the word to fellow Dune fans!
