"Little Leery Of That Talking Toddler": Dune 2 Writer Explains Creative Reason For Alia’s Book Change

"Little Leery Of That Talking Toddler": Dune 2 Writer Explains Creative Reason For Alia’s Book Change

Dune: Part Two co-writer Jon Spaihts explains the creative reason why Alia was changed for the movie. Directed once again by Denis Villeneuve, with a script he co-wrote with Spaihts, the second half of their Dune adaptation continues following Paul Atreides and his Bene Gesserit mother Lady Jessica with the Fremen as they take the fight to House Harkonnen. However, one major change from Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel is that Paul’s younger sister, Alia, only appears briefly in his visions, played by Anya Taylor-Joy.
