Anya Taylor-Joy Is In The ‘Dune: Part Two’ Cast As A Major Character

As if Anya Taylor-Joy wasn’t about to have a big enough year with Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga coming up. Today we’ve learned that she actually has a role in Dune: Part Two. Variety confirmed the rumors that have been spreading like wildfire over the last few days.  Oh, and also Taylor-Joy showed up at the red carpet for the film’s world premiere. A dead giveaway.

Still, this was a fairly well-kept secret. Taylor-Joy joins a cast that includes other young stars such as Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Austin Butler, and Florence Pugh, along with Léa Seydoux, Souheila Yacoub, Christopher Walken, Rebecca Ferguson, John Brolin, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling, and Javier Bardem.

As for Taylor-Joy’s character, I’ll let the secret remain, but let’s just say that she could be a part of this franchise for the long haul if Denis Villeneuve and Warner Bros. decide to keep things going.

Dune: Part Two hits theaters on March 1st, and you should be able to find some early reactions if you look around the Internet a bit.
