Zendaya Is Excited to See New Movie 'Dune' Because of This

Zendaya is looking forward to seeing her new film Dune!

The 23-year-old actress stars as Chani alongside Timothee Chalamet in the new sci-fi movie, but she actually doesn’t have a big part.

Zendaya recently opened up about why she’s excited to watch the film.

“My part is very, very small in this movie and that’s why I’m so excited to see it, to see what everyone’s been up to,” she told Empire magazine.

“[Director Denis Villeneuve and I] had a little discussion about who Chani is and the strength she possesses. She’s a fighter, that’s what her people are,” she added.

“I only really had a few days with her, so I kind of scratched the surface but it was so much fun figuring her out,” Zendaya dished about her character. “What does she walk like, what does she talk like? This is her planet, so how does she navigate this world? It was so fun.”

Zendaya Gives Update On Filming 'Euphoria' Season 2

Zendaya Gives Update On Filming 'Euphoria' Season 2

Zendaya is sharing a little update on the status of the second season of Euphoria.

In her new InStyle cover feature, the 23-year-old actress and star of the show said that it needs to be safer before resuming filming.

“I do miss Rue. She’s like my little sister in a lot of ways. And going back to that character is a home base for me,” Zendaya said.

“There is a beautiful second season that has been written, but in order to do it the way we want to do it, we need to wait until it’s safer,” she continued. “There is an idea to do a couple of bridge episodes that can be shot safely but aren’t necessarily part of Season 2. So, hopefully, we will be able to do those in the coming months. I can’t wait.”

Production on Euphoria was just about to start filming, but like many shows, was shut down earlier this year due to the pandemic.

Zendaya was also recently nominated for her first Emmy award for her work as Rue. See how she reacted!

If you didn’t know, Zendaya and the creator of Euphoria, Sam Levinson, actually made a movie together during quarantine.
