The planet is Arrakis. Also known as Dune and it's a meess. 1965 novel Dune has been previously (and rather infamously) brought to life by David Lynch in 1984, and again in a three-part miniseries on the SyFy channel in the early 2000s. But, What is Dune? Why must the spice flow? And what is with all the sand?
