Warner Bros. recently released a new behind-the-scenes featurette from director Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, who says, “I think that as soon as you say, ‘okay, let’s make Dune,’ you go back home and the first thing you ask is, ‘okay, what about the worm?'”
This video gives some insight into how the sandworms were designed and brought to life.
The sandworm is a massive creature that lives in the deep desert, known by the Fremen as Shai Hulud, and revered as a god-like figure. Discover how Villeneuve and his design team created a lifeform with a soul, that you will believe can survive in the roughest environment on Arrakis.
