More big names have joined the war on Arrakis.
Walken’s character was absent from Part One, but Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV plays an important part in the story.
For those of you who don’t know, Princess Irulan is the daughter of Shaddam IV and a narrator in the novel.
Feyd-Rautha is the sadistic younger nephew of Baron Harkonnen, who intends to make him the next ruler of Arrakis and even the Emperor of the Universe.
Like Paul’s mother Jessica, Lady Margot is a member of the Bene Gesserit. She is also the wife of the Emperor’s closest friend/assassin, Count Fenring.
The synopsis for the sequel reads: “Part Two will focus on Paul assembling a massive army of Fremen to combat the ruthless Harkonnen, as he essentially becomes a mythical messiah figure to the inhabitants of Arrakis.”
