Zendaya shared a brand-new image image of Chani from Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming Dune remake.
In the last few days, we have gotten our first look at Denis Villeneuve’s highly anticipated Dune remake and the world of Arrakis. The images have stirred a lot of anticipation for many online with a first trailer hopefully on the way soon. Another major reason for the hype is because the upcoming Dune film is comprised of an all-star cast. Spider-Man star Zendaya is one of those names, who’s set to play Chani, a warrior who belongs to the Fremen. Chani was portrayed by Sean Young in David Lynch’s 1984 film.
Denis Villeneuve is planning on telling the sci-fi epic in two parts, given the book’s massive length. While we got our first look at Zendaya’s Chani on Tuesday morning, the 23-year old actress later shared another image from Dune on her Instagram, which offers an even better look at her character. You can check out the brand-new Dune image of Zendaya’s Chani below.
