Dune Part Two trailer: Abu Dhabi's desert is the star of the show



The latest trailer features the capital's mesmerising sandy terrain.

The much-anticipated trailer for the new sci-fi epic, Dune Part Two, has recently been released and it features some stunning scenes shot in Abu Dhabi's deserts.

Much like its predecessor, Dune, which hit screens in 2021, Dune Part Two features the UAE capital's sandy terrain. The dramatic landscapes provide a perfect backdrop, showcasing the beauty and harshness of the desert environment.

Dune has reportedly been shot in the Liwa desert, the Empty Quarter and Al Wathba Fossil Dunes. Photos of Timothee Chalamet from the time he was shooting the film in Abu Dhabi show that the actor was also spotted somewhere near Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara. Even Zendaya took to Instagram late last year while shooting Dune Part Two - blending in the golden dunes behind her. 

The filming of Dune in Abu Dhabi is a significant win for the UAE's film industry. The country has been investing heavily in its film industry in recent years, with the opening of the Abu Dhabi Film Commission and the Dubai Film and TV Commission. The hope is that by providing incentives and support for filmmakers, the UAE can become a major player in the global film industry.

Abu Dhabi has become a popular destination for filmmakers, and it's not hard to see why. Other films such as Mission Impossible, Star Trek, Star Wars, and several others have been shot in the region. The city offers a diverse range of locations, from modern skyscrapers to traditional souks and historic landmarks. The deserts surrounding the city are also a major draw, offering a unique and stunning backdrop for any film.

As for the movie, Dune Part Two is expected to hit cinema screens in November 2023. Since the movie has been shot in Abu Dhabi, we're hoping - or rather praying - for a premiere in the capital.
