In the development of Denis Villeneuve Dune, it seemed like Zendaya was sure to be more in it than it really was. The trailers said that her character Chani would be more than a girl who pursues – or beautifies, depending on your point of view – Paul Atreides’ dreams of Timothy Chalamet, while the film itself has quite noticeably failed to justify itself in this regard. Fortunately, and perhaps obviously, it will be much more characteristic. further…
Speaking with Deadline for their cover on unexpected box office hitZendaya promised that much more of Chani’s story would be revealed in the next act 2. “I can be there longer, and that’s cool,” she joked. Before she was cast, and even before the casting for the film began, she gave her name – that would be before she took over the HBO channel. Euphoria (and presumably only one Spider-Man movie under the belt) and she knew she had nothing to really prove she could star in a sci-fi movie.

I wish I could spend more time with her and with everyone. I didn’t want to leave. ” By the time she arrived in Jordan, she had met everyone who was already wearing their stillsuits, which was “a very cool way to get to know everyone, in fact, in their character.”
Later in the back story, Chalame himself is asked about Zendai and he went into full wife husband mode. “Zendaya is an Chani, and that’s incredible, ”he chuckled. He described the scene in which she takes off the mask as a pretty big deal, both in the film and on set: “That day, it was like the hell Chani arrived.” Knowing that the love between Paul and Chani would live on and continue throughout the book, he wanted to say some powerful things that should delight fans of the novels. “The relationship between us was not only alive in Jordan, and not only now they are broadcast on the screen, but are also present at the first reading of chemistry. It was obvious “.
Dune: Part Two and Zendaya hit theaters on October 20, 2023.
