Who does Anya Taylor Joy play in Dune 2?

15 February 2024
It is speculated Anya Taylor-Joy will be playing the role of Alia in the Dune 2 sequel.

Anya may be the voice of the character from within Lady Jessica's womb.

Total guess at this point.

This does set up Taylor Joy to play the role again in Dune: Messiah should the success of Dune 2 prompt a second sequel.

Taylor Joy has been a red not actress over the last few years - we're hanging out for her turn as Furioisa in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.

Who does Anya Taylor Joy play in Dune 2?

So, who is Alia Atredies in the Dune saga?

Born on the desert planet Arrakis, also known as Dune, Alia is the younger sister of Paul Atreides, the saga's protagonist, and possesses an extraordinary intellect and precognitive abilities due to her exposure to the Spice Melange while still in her mother's womb.

This exposure grants her access to the genetic memories of her ancestors, making her a Reverend Mother of the Bene Gesserit order in her infancy. 

Alia's character arc is marked by her struggle with these inherited memories and the vast powers they confer, which eventually lead to internal conflict and a tragic descent. 

Her role in the saga is pivotal, as she navigates the treacherous political landscapes of Arrakis and the galaxy, influencing key events and embodying the themes of power, identity, and destiny that are central to the "Dune" series. 

Alia's story is a poignant exploration of the burdens of extraordinary abilities and the complex interplay between fate and free will.
