Added DiffLines:

* Another counter-argument: Baron Harkonnen fate of Yueh is expressed through ExactWords, as "joining Wanna" results in Yueh being murdered, not sedated and turned into some grotesque creature.

If this movie does only cover the first half of the book, we will still need to see the Emperor of the Known Universe at least once. The Emperor will be played by Music/{{Sting}}.

[[WMG:The multi-limbed creature in the Harkonnen throne room is Wanda]]
It is known Wanda was tormented by the Harkonnens to pressure Yueh into betrayal, but the exact torments are never stated either in the movie or the book. However in the book Piter de Vries is sadistic even by Harkonnen standards (and who for a reward for his work on the fall of the Atreides wished to have Lady Jessica as payment) and various forms of fleshcrafting are known to exist in the Empire (whether the Bene Tleilax, or the Mentat schools). It is conceivable Piter turned torture of the poor woman into his personal sick art project.

Added DiffLines:

** OP here. When I wrote this theory, I meant to predict that the movie would have a gay character who's heroic and definitely ''not'' a DepravedHomosexual.

Added DiffLines:

* Sure, the Baron himself, [[{{DepravedHomosexual}} like he was in the original books]]. This is gonna end well!

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG:One of the heroes will be gay in this movie]]
[[AuthorsSavingThrow As an attempt to make up for the homophobic depiction of Baron Harkonnen in the 1984 movie.]]

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG:Command & Conquer's Kane will have an unexplained cameo]]


* Not including Feyd wouldn't make sense [[spoiler:particularly when the Bene Gesserit's Kwisatz Haderach plan is going to be revealed in the movie. In their plan, Feyd is supposed to wed Leto Atreides and Jessica's daughter and their offspring would be the Kwisatz Haderach. But since Jessica bore a son instead out of her love for Leto, the Bene Gesserit's Kwisatz Haderach plan fall apart]]. Also, Feyd is Baron Hakonnen's favorite over Rabban and is the heir of his house, making him much of a {{Foil}} to Paul. Given Batista's age (he's in his '''fifties'''), if they intend to make Rabban a CompositeCharacter for Feyd...[[{{Squick}}yeah]].

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG:The movie will end before the two-year time skip]]
Since the movie will cover the first half of the book, it's likely that it would end around the time [[spoiler:Jessica drinks the Water of Life and Paul chooses the name of Muad'Dib]]. In that sense, the second movie will show characters like Feyd-Rautha, Alia, Emperor Shaddam and Irulan.

[[WMG:The Emperor will appear if only briefly in this movie, and will be a returning cast member from the first movie]]
If this movie does only cover the first half of the book, we will still need to see the Emperor of the Known Universe at least once. The Emperor will be played by Music/{{Sting}}.

[[WMG:Duncan Idaho will survive the initial attack on the Atreides, only to die defending Paul and Jessica.]]
In the trailer, he addresses Paul as 'my lord duke', implying that Leto is dead.

[[WMG:The Padishah Emperor will not appear in this movie]]
To simplify storylines and save on people they have to cast in the first film, the Padishah Emperor and whoever plays them (not to mention Princess Irulan) will not appear until the second film of the duology when they arrive in response to the Fremen uprising.

[[WMG:Duncan Idaho and Gurney Halleck will switch fates]]
Since trailers show Duncan addressing a desert-bound Paul Atreides as "my duke", it stands to reason that he gets at least a temporary SparedByTheAdaptation versus his book fate of [[BigGuyFatalitySyndrome dying in the Harkonnen attack]]. Conversely, to keep the stakes of the battle closer to the book, perhaps it is Gurney Halleck instead who gets a DeathByAdaptation in the Harkonnen/Sardaukar assault.

[[WMG:Rabban will die and Feyd-Rautha will just replace him for Part 2]]
Of note is that there's been no word of Feyd even being cast yet. If a second film gets made, Rabban's supposed to die during that. But perhaps they will kill him off early, say at Duncan's hands, to set the stage for his brother's entrance. Alternatively...

[[WMG:Rabban will take over Feyd's role completely]]
Perhaps there's been no news of Feyd being cast because they don't plan on including him. But this would be a letdown for various reasons, not the least being that a Chalamet vs. Batista death duel would seem so lopsided on the surface in Batista's favor that Chalamet would ''have'' to win [[DavidVsGoliath by the rules of tropeland.]] This wouldn't feel so telegraphed if Paul was facing someone who looked like his equal.
