Frank Herbert’s classic science fiction novel series Dune has been adapted into a feature film, several television series, and graphic novels over the years. The most recent adaptation of Dune was released in December 2020 as a two-part miniseries directed by Denis Villeneuve. It stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, and Javier Bardem.
The miniseries has been critically acclaimed for its visuals, performances, and faithfulness to the source material. It was one of the most anticipated films of 2020 and fans have been eagerly awaiting its release ever since it was announced in 2019. But is Dune available on Netflix or Amazon?
Unfortunately, neither Netflix nor Amazon have acquired the streaming rights to the miniseries. The only way to watch it is through HBO Max or in theaters where it is currently playing. The miniseries is expected to be released on Blu-ray and digital platforms sometime in 2021 but an exact date has not yet been announced.
For those looking to rewatch the original 1984 David Lynch adaptation of Dune or some of the other adaptations of Frank Herbert’s novels, they are available on both Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. The 1984 version of Dune was released on Blu-ray earlier this year with a remastered 4K transfer supervised by Lynch himself so viewers can enjoy the classic version in all its glory.
So while viewers won’t be able to stream the new Denis Villeneuve adaptation of Dune on Netflix or Amazon, there are still plenty of other adaptations that are available for streaming on both services if you’re looking for your fix of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi epic.
In conclusion, Dune is currently not available on Netflix or Amazon. It can only be watched through HBO Max or in theaters where it is currently playing. However, fans can still enjoy some of the other adaptations such as David Lynch’s 1984 version which is available for streaming on both platforms with a remastered 4K transfer supervised by Lynch himself.
