Children of Dune (2003)

Follows Dune (2000). Officially based on two of Frank Herbert's science fiction novels, Dune Messiah and Children of Dune. The story was set in the year 10,103: Having deposed the evil emperor of the desert planet Arrakis, the messianic Paul Atreides was firmly installed as the planet's supreme "Muad'Dib," as well as the guardian of Arrakis' life-enhancing spice supply. Unfortunately, Paul's efforts to unify his kingdom have had the residual consequences of bloodshed and tyranny. It fell to Paul's twin children, Ghanima and Leto II, to thwart the villainous machinations of the planet's deposed matriarch, Princess Wensicia, and the beautiful but insane Princess Alia.
