Dune: Part One costume designer Jacqueline West recently spoke at Qatar’s Doha Film Institute on Tuesday and teased what we can expect from the sequel.

During the Q&A, West revealed she had initially turned Villeneuve down when he first contacted her.  

“I said, ‘I don’t do sci-fi. It’s not my thing.’ I said no. He hired someone else, and I guess he wasn’t happy because he called my agent a second time and said, ‘Can I just talk to her.’ Mary Parent, who produced The Revenant and was producing Dune, got me in her office and put me on FaceTime with him on a big screen.

“He was so compelling. He said, ‘I want you because I do not want it to look like sci-fi. I want it to be classical. I don’t want it to look like a video game.’ ”

Apparently, the sequel was a lot more labor-intensive than its predecessor. She explains:

“In Part Two, you really dive into the different worlds of Dune. We see what the Emperor’s world looks like. We go to his planet. We spend a lot of time on Giedi Prime, the Harkonnen planet. We spend a lot of time in Stellan Skarsgård’s [Vladimir Harkonnen] world. Feyd-Rautha [Harkonnen] also comes into this one, brilliantly played by Austin Butler, Elvis. He is pretty fabulous in it.

All the worlds get expanded. It was about creating three separate, different-looking worlds and also revisiting the Bene Gesserits, the age-old ones with these costumes that almost look like Egyptian mummies. I think it’s visually stunning, the sets, the cinematography and the concepts.”


It sounds like Dune: Part Two will be mind-blowingly awesome, with Villeneuve going all in. Bautista has already spoken about the intensity of the movie and with the additions of Tim Blake Nelson and Austin Butler, this makes Dune: Part Two the must-see movie of 2023.
