Zendaya Assures Fans She'll Be In 'Dune' Sequel For Longer Than She Was in The First Film

When Dune came out in October, fans were not pleased to find out that she was only in about 7 minutes of the 2-hour-and-35-minute run time.

“There are some characters that are less developed that I’m keeping for the second film — that’s the way I found the equilibrium,” director Denis Villeuneve explained about her appearance on screen.

Now, Zendaya is assuring fans that she will be in the sequel for a lot longer.

“I can be there for longer, which is cool,” she shared. “I want to grow with the characters I play, and with the people that I get to learn from. Anybody who has read the books knows there’s so much more to explore and deal with.”

Zendaya did mention that there was an upside to having such a smaller role in Dune.

“What was cool for me not having been around for much of the first shoot was getting to see the movie from a completely fresh perspective,” she said. “Because I hadn’t seen the sets and the scenes for most of the movie. And watching it felt like just the beginning of this story.”

Zendaya just recently shared some big news with fans of her HBO series, Euphoria.
