Fans look for Tabu

While the 1-minute-34-seconds teaser gave glimpses of various characters, it’s difficult to know if Tabu was among them. “But no Tabu. Gonna assume her role is either very important that they don’t want to show or it’s a small role. Nonetheless with or without her, I was always excited for anything related to my latest favourite child and that’s DUNE,” wrote a fan, reacting to the teaser on X (formerly Twitter).

Another wrote, “do not get the Dune Vibes. Maybe because the distinct Dennis Style has become synonymous with Dune. Still hopeful tho. Excited for Tabu.” Some fans however were absolutely convinced they’ve spotted Tabu, with one fan sharing the screengrab which shows a veiled character, another, just a shot of a bare back.
