742452, I think the HBO Max streaming release will help the sequel do numbers

A lot of people that may not have spent money to see it in the theater got to see it on HBO max and probably enjoyed it enough and are invested enough to go see the part 2 in theaters. Which would be great if part 2 does enough numbers to justify them green lighting Children and Messiah.
742453, nooooo.

that would just make everyone hate Dune like the last season of GOT.
742454, I agree that people will probably hate Messiah

Children, they could probably pull off and tweak it enough that people would hate it.

I am not sure how you even approach Messiah to make it watchable, much less likable but perhaps Dennis could pull it off and maybe just make his own version of Messiah that onky shares a name/title but a totally different story.
742474, I like Messiah btw.

it's the perfect ending as well. Villeneuve even said he wanted to film three Dune movies, because what happens in Messiah is vital to Paul's entire arc.

Children of Dune though...god no. end it before we get there.

just the public announcement because some reviewers were wondering if a sequel would get made (and some of the general public were confused because they missed the "Part I" at the beginning.)
742476, Pretty Much

You dont put Part I unless you know you're making a Part II. Putting Part I also allows some of the reviewers to ease up because its not really a stand-alone film.
