the movie goes to the middle of the first book

It’s been decades since I’ve read the dune books and while I thoroughly enjoyed them, I don’t remember many plot details anymore. so I reached out to book readers on reddit for details on how far the opening book of the first movie goes.

On reddit, citizen_graves revealed that the first part of dune covers the first of the three parts of the original novel. The first novel is dense at around 600 pages, so there are quite a few plot points and skipped scenes in the movie, even though it only covers part of the book already.

citizen_graves wrote: “any details that are not essential to the overall plot are glossed over in the film, adding more mystery to the world depicted in the film, and I think non-readers will go see the book after see the movie.”

new characters and scenes were also added for the film, citizen_graves continued, writing: “not only does the film omit information or gloss over details, there are parts of the story, scenes and characters from the book that were interrupted or even completely left out At the same time, new sets and scenes were created for the film.”

It is worth noting that quite a few readers believe that the film covers more than half of the first novel rather than just the first of three parts. redditor maximedhiver wrote: “it also covers more than half of part 2, though it leaves out the side stories about what happens to gurney and thufir.”

and den of geek noted that the film covers roughly the first 320 pages of the author’s 560-page book.
