- Synopsis / Plot
- The Padishah Emperor places the Atreides family in charge of the desert planet Arrakis, also known as Dune. Arrakis is source of the all-important chemical spice, which is used by the Guild Navigators to travel through space. This move is deeply resented by the Atreides’ sworn enemies, The House of Harkonnen. On Arrakis, the Duke Leto Atreides’ son Paul becomes fascinated with culture of the native Fremen, which is based around survival in harsh desert conditions. Baron Harkonnen launches an elaborate plot to bring about the Atreides downfall, reoccupying Arrakis with his armies and slaughtering the Atreides with the assist of a traitor within their household. Paul and his mother Jessica, a member of the matriarchal Bene Gesserit religious order, flee into the desert and take refuge among the Fremen. Under the influence of spice, Paul begins to discover his abilities to see the future and realizes that he is the long sought-after Kwisatz Haderach that the Bene Gesserit have long manipulated the bloodlines of the empire in an effort to produce. Taking the name of the desert mouse Muad’Dib, Paul organizes the Fremen into a powerful fighting force and sets out to bring down the Harkonnen occupation by sabotaging the all-important spice production.
