What could be the Expected Plot for Dune Part II?
Dune Part I ended on a high note and created a lot of room for Part II. Part I ended with Paul officially joining the Fremen. Paul and his mother, Lady Jessica, travel with Fremen to their home city. While their travel, Paul figures out one Fremen member riding a sandworm. It might be Chalamet riding a sandworm, and the story will begin from here in Part II.
Fans could expect Paul’s rising to power among Fremen and turn into rebellion against Emperor Shaddam IV. Additionally, new entries will include Princess Irulan, the Emperor’s eldest teen daughter, and Paul’s wife. Part I left the biggest twist, including Laddy Jessica and late Duke Leto’s daughter Alia Atreides. There are many spoilers and shocks hidden for Dune fans in Part II.
