DUNE TALK: Is Chani a Different Person in the Movies?

Since Zendaya’s Chani first met Timothée Chalamet’s Paul—in the final act of Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part One—book readers noticed differences in former character’s movie portrayal. On this week’s Dune Talk show we analyze Chani’s trailer scenes, with outlook towards the second movie. Do the (expected) changes have merit? Garin, Johnny, and Marcus also discuss a Stephen McKinley Henderson interview and Dune board game expansions.

This podcast (48 minutes) is available here in both video and audio formats (below). Enjoy and spread the word to fellow Dune fans!
