The success of Dune 2 is crucial for Dune 3 because the sequel will decide if the third part is worth investing in. Talking about the same as per the same portal, Denis Villeneuve said, "If I succeed in making a trilogy, that would be the dream. Dune Messiah was written in reaction to the fact that people perceived Paul Atreides as a hero. Which is not what he wanted to do.
