Welcome to watch Mojo and today we’re looking at ways Deni V’s first two Dune movies differ from Frank Herbert’s original novel for ciles and readers there are spoilers on both fronts here we’re equal what we do we do for the benefit of All I’d very much like to be equal to you maybe I’ll show you the way number 10 Emperor shadam older appearance deal with this Prophet s Dune part two introduces us to pesha Emperor Saddam IV played by Christopher wakin the book establishes shadam as 72 years old wakan may seem age appropriate since

He’s now in his 80s but the book notes that shadam looks like a 35-year-old maybe even younger a regular dosage of spice does wonders for one’s looks your father was a weak man while VNV could have cast a younger actor or deaged Walkin he opted to have shadam look his

Age had shadam appeared younger like in the book we imagine Outsiders would question why he looks roughly the same age as his daughter with Watkins casting the film avoids an exposition dump David Lynch’s Dune and the 2000 miniseries also went with older actors casting Jose ferer and Jen Carlo janini respectively

Number nine Paul versus jamas you should welcome my Blade this world will kill you quicker this way the first half of V’s adaptation builds to a confrontation between patres and jamas of the freman tribe in the novel and film this duel ends with blood on Paul’s hands the movie makes a few significant changes however before officially meeting Paul

Has visions of jamas seeing a path where they become friends you have much to learn and I will show you the ways of the Desert come with me instead Paul proves himself to the freman by defeating jamas although some view him as a murderer rather than a messiah he said that I got that thanks in addition to not having visions of jamas in the book Paul and Lady Jessica spend more time with the

Fman before the fight takes place the film sets Paul up as a more divisive figure and emphasizes how his Visions can lead to different outcomes I see possible Futures all at once and in so many futures or enemies Prevail I do see a way there is a narrow

Way through number eight fade Ralph a haran’s appearance he’s psychotic brought to life by Austin Butler fade rala hekinan is another figure who debuts in Dune part two while Butler accurately portrays fade ral’s menacing Charisma the film makes some tweaks to his appearance in the book you wouldn’t

Necessarily guess fade rala and baron Vladimir hekinan are related based on appearance the desert takes the weak my desert my ARA is why do in addition to not looking much like his Uncle fade rala stands out for most of the hekinan although fed rala is much leaner than the baron in vn’s

Adaptation his physical appearance otherwise doesn’t stick out drastically gone is his dark hair instead rocking a bald head like the rest of house harinen the film relies more on Butler’s expressions and body language which tells the audience that fate rala is deadlier than the average harinen deal with this prophet Show me who you are number seven the dinner party by the fireplace lingar but waterers shipper from the polar region man to his right spacing Guild representative how could I miss him the man with tufa is esma 2x Smuggler highly successful he has false ships if we need them even with two

Films that have a combined runtime of 322 minutes a few moments from Herbert’s first novel were inevitably omitted one of the most prominent scenes not to make the cut sees the atres attend a dinner not long after arriving on oracus hosted by Duke lato the banquet includes Merchants Smugglers Guild bankers and

Various others if it weren’t for the Spice no one would bother about it at all fortunately enough a water seller like you I would guess this not only expands upon the universe that Herbert created but also Dives deeper into the political tensions Sur surrounding this planet in a

Production this lengthy and expensive we understand why they would have to exclude any scenes that aren’t 100% necessary we both suffer the Solitude of our Birthright except that tomorrow you’ll return to the comfort of your palaces on kiteen to the confinement of its perfect Gardens and lonely Apartments the dinner party might not

Have been essential but it encompassed some of the franchise’s finest World building and could have further elevated V’s adaptation number six leat k his gender bless the maker and his water bless the coming and going of him may his passage cleanse the world and keep the world for his people Johnny is

Barely in Dune part one and Princess iron was reserved for part two it makes sense why VV aspired to create more roles for women otherwise lady Jessica would be the only female with substantial screen time Sharon Duncan Brewster plays Dr Le at kin’s who was male in Herbert’s book and previous

Adaptations heraus could have been a paradise the work had begun but then the spice was discovered suddenly no one wanted the desert to go away as vov saw it this quote doesn’t change the nature of the character it just makes it closer to the world today and more relevant and

Frankly more interesting beyond the gender swap KES meets a slightly different fate in the film instead of dying from dehydration and delirium after being stranded in the desert KES is given a more triumphant exit summoning a sandworm that consumes her and her attack I serve only one master his name is Shai HUD number five lady Jessica’s increased role we gave them something to hope for that’s not her lady Jessica has always been an important figure but villain of’s two films develop her into an even more layered character the book describes Jessica as leato atra’s quote concubine while the film doesn’t change

Her role Jessica commands more respect and Duke lato is more openly affectionate towards her the film also removes a plot point where Jessica is suspected of being a hearken and spy fear is the mind killer fear is The Little Death that brings obliteration after escaping into the desert with Paul and becoming a

Reverend mother Jessica’s presence in the novel is slowly but surely reduced not wanting Rebecca Ferguson to be quote an expensive extra VV sought to make Jessica a constant presence Dune part two thus sees her interact more with Paul and the fman proving to have a powerful influence do you believe in

Paul there are science number four Chan’s Dynamic with Paul I won’t be fighting for him I’m fighting for my people like lady Jessica Chie was integral to the book but she’s taken to new depths in the movies especially Dune part two the film does an effective job of building a loving

Relationship between her and Paul which makes it all the more tragic when they’re driven apart I want you to know I will love you as long as I breathe you will never lose me as long as you stay who you are at the center of the conflict is the prophecy that Paul

Is destined to be the chosen one while Paul initially rejects this idea he eventually comes to embrace it in a change from the book Johnny speaks out against these long-held religious beliefs this prophecy is how they enslave us with both headed down different paths Paul is given more

Incentive to marry princess iron unlike the book where channie becomes Paul’s concubine Dune part two ends with channie striking out independently number three no lato II it’s been a while since you’ve had one of those nightmares tell me what was it about it’s only fragments in Herbert’s

Novel Paul has a son with Johnny naming him after his late father when the fman are attacked only a couple of years later lato II is among the casualties we can see why Dune part two left out lato II for a few reasons to begin the film

Is already nearly 3 hours long the pacing likely would have suffered if the film introduced Paul’s firstborn only to quickly take him out of the picture I want you to take lato and return to the southern Siege I want you safe secondly reading about lato II’s death is one thing but

Seeing it depicted on screen may have been more than some audiences could handle finally Dune Messiah sees paen chani have another son who also confusedly named lato II so this spares us from any repetitive plot points it’s up to you now my son the golden path is dangerous son

Number two Alia atraes saved for another sequel Ana Taylor Joy makes a surprise cameo in Dune part two as Paul’s sister Alia via a vision other than this we don’t see Alia outside of her mother’s womb Jessica spends the whole movie pregnant with no major time Jump although it’s strongly hinted that Alia

Will play a vital role in future sequels Alia is born in Herbert’s first book leading to some of the most let’s say Colorful Moments poor Emperor I’m afraid my brother won’t be very pleased with you Sil kill this child she’s an Abomination kill her get out of my mind due to the Water

Of Life Alia comes into the world a full Reverend mother what’s more she’s essentially an adult in the body of a child allowing her to take out the baron at age two come to me Baron while the baron meets his end in the film Alia isn’t the one who does him

In before we unveil our top pick here are some honorable mentions Paul’s first interaction with a sandworm the film puts him in more Jeopardy Dr UA’s betrayal the book hints at a traitor although the movie treats it as a surprise I had no choice the darkness have my wife

W they take her apart like a doll the sard of car’s attire while attacking house atraes they disguised themselves as hekinan in the book but not the movie C gurnie H versus Glu Rabon while not in the book we could use a rematch between Thanos and Drax look who’s back from the

Dead a more action-packed climax only a few pages in the book but VV takes advantage of the visual medium May thy knife chip and shatter before we continue be sure to subscribe to our Channel and ring the bell to get notified about our latest videos you have the option to be

Father’s name fanatical Allegiance worshiping at The Shrine of my father’s a war in my name those who’ve read the Dune novels know that Paul Tres isn’t an idealistic Everyman he’s an anti-hero who has many qualities we associate with great leaders but he also exemplifies the issues that come with proclaiming

Someone a messiah the prophet why is that a bad thing use it because all my Visions lead to horror because you lose control because I gain it that that was always Frank Herbert’s intention although numerous readers didn’t seem to understand this when the first book came out to set the

Record straight Herbert leaned more into Paul’s flawed nature with Dune Messiah VNV doesn’t want to wait for the third film to bring out Paul’s Dark Side establishing early on that despite being the protagonist he’s not always heroic if anything Paul demonstrates why we should quote beware of Heroes which

Herbert felt was quote the bottom line of the Dune Trilogy it’s not a prophecy it’s a story were these changes for the better or worse let us know your thoughts in the comments now do what must be done did you enjoy this video check out these other clips from watch
