FRANK HERBERT'S CHILDREN OF DUNE

VIEW IMaGES

Full Synopsis

Frank Herbert's Dune was just the beginning. Now, Frank Herbert’s monumental saga of a young man’s rise to universal power on an embattled desert planet, continues in this extraordinary miniseries based on Dune Messiah and Children of Dune. Where it takes you is an epic of the human imagination.

It’s been twelve years since Paul Maud’dib Atreides’s (Alec Newman, Frank Herbert's Dune) desert-dwelling Freman Jihad spread out across the universe to exterminate all that remained of the Old Imperial armies—twelve years of war as all the known planets were colonised, one-by-one, under Maud’dib’s rule. Out of this chaos, the House Atreides has emerged as a superpower of Dune—the arid planet, Arrakis. But its imperial government is not omnipotent. Its greatest enemy, the fallen Baron Harkonnen (Ian McNeice, A Christmas Carol), still strives to regain control of Dune, its mysterious life force, and everything it represents to the galactic order.

A far more insidious threat is poised and ready to strike within the treacherous House Atreides. As Maud’dib’s secret enemies grow in number, his only chance to protect the family’s supreme reign is in his new twins, born of his concubine, Chani (Barbara Kodetova, Dune). Soon, the hope for Dune will be in the hands of his young son Leto, heir to a power unimaginable. It will be Leto’s responsibility to demystify the legacy of his father, raze the old regime, and restore peace to the Empire. But the ultimate battle has yet to be waged, and the children of Atreides—the children of Dune—will find themselves trapped in an unpredictable future of their family’s own making.
