Even though Dune’s sequel hasn’t been officially announced yet, the director, Denis Villeneuve, is determined to make it into a trilogy. Recently in an interview, he revealed his further plans with the movies. The first movie is based on the first half of Frank Herbert’s first novel, while the second movie is based on the other half. The third movie covers the second novel of the Dune saga – Dune Messiah. The screenwriter for the 2021 movie, Jon Spaihts, and Villeneuve are already working with full force for the sequel’s screenplay. 

During the interview, Villeneuve expressed how he loved the sci-fi written by Frank Herbert and was always a fan of these books. The director was always inspired by the books and thought of making the movies for quite a long time. Talking about his plans for the movies, he said:

There is Dune’s second book , The Messiah of Dune, which could make an extraordinary film.I always saw that there could be a trilogy, after that we’ll see. It’s years of work, I can’t think of going further than that.

He is passionate about filmmaking so much that he says that his kids laugh at him. He is very excited about the film, and so are we. Since it is one of the best science-fiction, we believe the movie adaptation would be equally fascinating.
