DUNE TALK: Irulan and Chani, Two Years Before ‘Dune’

In this first Dune Talk of 2024 we explore the backstories of Irulan and Chani, key women of the upcoming Dune: Part Two movie. What were the Imperial princess and young Fremen warrior up to, two years before House Atreides’ ill-fated assignment to Arrakis? The recently published Princess of Dune novel answers that question. Regular hosts Marcus and Mark are joined by Rachel, for a lively book review discussion. Plus, as a bonus; Spacing Guild cosplay and lore!

This podcast (71 minutes) is available here in both video and audio formats (below). Enjoy and spread the word to fellow Dune fans!

Key Dune news story covered on this show:

Published in October 2023, the prequel book Princess of Dune—which also serves as a loose tie-in to the ongoing movies—tells the story of Princess Irulan Corrino and Chani Kynes. Set several years before their first encounter with Paul Atreides, we see the challenges these important characters must face amidst an increasingly unstable Imperium.
