’s much-awaited that has many readers of the 1965 book stumped. The relationship between ’s Chani and Timothée Chalamet’s Paul Atreides, the main protagonists, is one of the most notable changes made to the original work.

If you follow Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel , Paul and Chani have a son named Leto II, who is essential to the events of the story. Villeneuve, on the other hand, chose to completely deviate Leto from this plot point in his film adaptation. Instead of depicting Leto II’s tragic fate, the film concludes with a dramatic twist in which Chani leaves Paul after he chooses to marry Princess Irulan (Florence Pugh) to consolidate his power.

That is completely depressing; the director might have done that in order to add a pinch of drama to this love triangle. This betrayal not only breaks Chani’s heart but also sets the stage for a potential showdown between Zendaya’s character and the Fremen.

Chani has deep ties to the people and desert planet of Arrakis because she is a Fremen tribe member. With Paul’s decision to marry Irulan and leave Chani behind, Zendaya’s character may rise to lead the dissenting faction of Fremen, who do not believe Paul is the prophesied Messiah.

Paul finally brings Baron Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård) to justice by stabbing the merciless ruler in the neck as payback for his attack on House Atreides. Furthermore, the former successfully defeats Austin Butler’s Feyd-Rautha, sparing Emperor Shaddam IV (Christopher Walken), even though the kingpin was the one who orchestrated the destruction of House Atreides.

After Paul uses marriage (with Princess Irulan) to assert his dominance at the end of the film, Chani, feeling betrayed and enraged, leaves everything and heads into the desert by herself.

It is hard to predict what surprises Paul will face in the upcoming story, as Zendaya’s character is set to assume a more prominent role (probably) in the story. Will Chani emerge as a leader in her own right, or will her relationship with Paul undergo an unexpected, different turn?

Well, the success of at the box office will determine whether a third movie is produced. Yet such an epic, jaw-dropping conclusion to the sequel makes it abundantly evident that the story is far from finished.
