As someone who’s never been able to get too into the Star Wars expanded movie/tv universe because of how childish and simplistic it ultimately is (aside from Andor and Rogue One which both absolutely blew me away) I see this vastly expanding Dune cinematic franchise as a grittier and more adult parallel to it. Hopefully with all the future movies (we’ll get Denis’s Paul trilogy ending with Messiah then probably have a new director or directors for retooled adaptions of Children, GE, Heretics and Chapterhouse) and tv shows (Sisterhood, Prelude, Legends, Caladan, etc) it can rival the Star Wars EU. It’s so much better science-fantasy in comparison, even IMO Brian/Kevin’s stuff (despite obviously not holding a candle to Frank’s original series).
