Dune: Part Two Ending Explained: What Happens, What It Means, And How It Sets Up The Story For A Sequel

SPOILER WARNING: The following article contains massive spoilers for Dune: Part Two. If you have not yet seen the film, proceed at your own risk!

Writer/director Denis Villeneuve has a vision, and we have now seen two-thirds of it completed. With the release of Dune: Part Two, it can be said that the filmmaker has crafted the most epic and faithful adaptation possible of author Frank Herbert’s novel… but he’s not done yet. Still ahead for him is the first ever big screen take on Dune: Messiah, and knowing that makes the ending of his 2024 blockbuster all the more exciting.

I’ll dissect what it means to have the final moments in the film be with Chani and how events set up what’s (hopefully) on the way, but first, let’s do a quick recap of what plays out in the movie’s final scenes:
