DUNE TALK: ‘Dune’ TV Series Casting Announcements

After a break to attend FanX last month, the Dune Talk team have returned with a packed show—lots of movie and TV news! The big story is HBO Max’s Dune: The Sisterhood, with principal cast members announced and production set to commence next month. We discuss, could this TV series be even more important for Dune, than the movies?

Meanwhile, filming of Dune: Part Two is still in full-swing. Garin, Johnny, Marcus, and Simon break down all of the latest production updates and react to the movie’s second release date change.

This podcast (61 minutes) is available below in both video and audio formats. Enjoy and spread the word to fellow Dune fans!
