Interesting posts Blastman and DM but of course you know that none of that stuff matters to 95% of Hollywood script writers. wink

Who thinks the Prequel books are better written than Franks original series.To me they do fill in a lot of the back story.Although found the last book felt rushed.

The first 3 Frank Herbert books (Dune, Messiah and Children) are absolute classics and represent the pinnacle of his writing. God Emperor was pretty good but still a notch down in my opinion. Heretics and Chapterhouse I found to be highly confusing reads. I'll have to revisit those some day.

There are no prequel books, only the original ones.

Dune: House Atreides, Dune: House Harkonnen, and Dune: House Corrino were the first 3 prequels written, taking place a few decades before Dune. A series about events leading up to and including the Butlerian Jihad was also written.

I suspect MadDog doesn't acknowledge the prequels existence.


One day the West will fall. But if the Liberty for which we fight is taken up by the world then the West will not have failed.

To be fair, the prequels were written by Herbert's son, so, in a way, they are fan fiction.

Wasn't his son also working on a sequel or two that takes place after Chapterhouse Dune?

I looked at the entire release schedule for this year and there are only 2 films that I'll be seeing in the movie theater: Dune and No Time to Die.

Add Top Gun to that list and that's me. Couldn't wait for theaters to open back up and now that they are I don't want to see anything they've got.

Dune will mark my return to the movie theater and while I doubt the film will bomb, it will also not be a huge blockbuster.

This is just kind of peripherally related, but it's an interview with Francesca Annis from the first Dune movie about her experience making it:

I read that interview on Friday and it’s really a fantastic insight into her experiences during the making of the film. One thing that did surprise me is when she said she has only seen the film once which was at the premiere which I assume she was obligated to attend.

I guess the finished film didn’t leave much of an impression on her. lol.
