According to a recent post on Timothée Chalamet's Instagram page, Dune: Part Two filming has finally completed, which is good news for fans of the classic science fiction universe.

The caption on the picture reads, "DUNE 2 WRAPPED (with desert dad!!)," and it shows the actor standing next to his father against a background of the desert.

Although Chalamet's Instagram post provided no new details about what the sequel will contain, it does confirm that the movie will enter its post-production phase.

Next November's planned sequel, which will act as a direct continuation of the first movie, will be based on the second half of Frank Herbert's original 1965 novel.

Along with several actors from the previous movie, including Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgrd, Javier Bardem, and Dave Bautista, Denis Villeneuve returns to the director's chair.

The sequel will also introduce a number of fresh faces to the franchise, including Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha, Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, and Christopher Walken as Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV.

Despite the lack of information about the movie, Villeneuve has previously stated that the sequel will build on the setup of the original with a stronger emphasis on "cinematic action."

A critical and commercial success, The First Dune appeared in cinemas and on HBO Max in 2021. Many praised the picture for its fidelity to the original work as well as its epic sense of scale.

The movie would go on to win numerous awards, including five BAFTAs and six Academy Awards.

Along with the eventual publication of its eagerly awaited sequel, Dune: The Sisterhood, a television spinoff that will focus on the Bene Gesserit's beginnings, is also in the works.
