The Dune prequel series, Dune: The Sisterhood includes two crucial Bene Gesserit characters. The two primary roles for Dune: The Sisterhood have been cast, according to a recent report from Deadline. Emily Watson from Chernobyl and Shirley Henderson from Harry Potter will play Bene Gesserit in the Dune prequel. Watson and Henderson will take on the roles of Valya and Tula Harkonnen, respectively. They are sisters who have attained positions of authority within the Sisterhood, the group that eventually gives rise to the Bene Gesserit.
The story of Dune: The Sisterhood, which takes place 10,000 years before Paul Atreides’ tale, follows the Harkonnen sisters as they change the Sisterhood into the Bene Gesserit. When the show will start production is not yet known. In 2021, Denis Villeneuve used the renowned science fiction book by Frank Herbert as the foundation for a brand-new franchise.
David Lynch attempted to adapt Dune, but it was unsuccessful. The renowned director then made Dune into a critical and commercial success. The film, which starred Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, and Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto, exceeded expectations during the COVID-19 pandemic and had a big sci-fi scope. With Dune: Part Two and a Dune HBO Max prequel series, Villeneuve was able to continue creating new worlds because to the film’s success.
Dune 2 is currently in production when Dune: The Sisterhood received a boost with the Harkonnen sisters’ casting. Although it appears that the Dune sequel will be released before the prequel series, connections can still be drawn between the two. Villeneuve has already affirmed that more of the Harkonnen family will be investigated in Dune 2. Flashbacks illustrating the roles Valya and Tula Harkonnen played in the family tens of thousands of years ago might be part of this.
By detailing how the Bene Gesserit gained prominence in the galaxy and developed into such a powerful group in relative secrecy, Dune: The Sisterhood could have the most impact on Dune 2. Due to Lady Jessica’s involvement in Dune 2, the Bene Gesserit should continue to play significant roles in the sequel, and Feyd Rautha Harkonnen’s introduction will encourage further discussion of their Kwitsatz Haderach scheme. The Bene Gesserit’s goal may be traced back to its inception thanks to the Sisterhood, according to Dune.
