Yes, yesterday Dune: Part Two was greenlit by Legendary who was ultimately the production company that would decide the sequel’s fate. Everyone was waiting (im)-patiently for the official announcement which, thankfully, dropped yesterday.
The news was met with genuine joy/excitement from the thousands of people, like me, who are beyond thrilled to see Villeneuve’s vision for Part Two. The film was also given a date: October 23, 2023.
That’s a reasonable date. It gives Villeneuve and the returning crew time to prepare themselves for filming the project as well as plenty of time to smooth out the kinks if need be. And in 2023 we’ll get the second in what Villeneuve has planned to be a trilogy. That’s a very exciting and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
And this morning, the prequel Pixar film called Lightyear was released. Here it is.
Literal goosebumps. I love Buzz Lightyear from the Toy Story movies and this prequel film, which feels so mysterious in terms of its place in this Pixar-building franchise, looks like it’s going to be a blast to watch. I’m very interested in this movie and even though I’m going to miss Tim Allen’s iconic voicing of the character I’m ready to hear Chris Evans bring Buzz Lightyear to life next summer.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
