What is it?
The 2003 science fiction miniseries Frank Herbert’s Children Of Dune.
Here is how Wikipedia describes this miniseries:
Frank Herbert’s Children of Dune is a three-part science fiction miniseries written by John Harrison and directed by Greg Yaitanes, based on Frank Herbert’s novels Dune Messiah (1969) and Children of Dune (1976). First broadcast in the United States on March 16, 2003, Children of Dune is the sequel to the 2000 miniseries Frank Herbert’s Dune (based on Herbert’s 1965 novel Dune), and was produced by the Sci Fi Channel. Children of Dune and its predecessor are two of the three highest-rated programs ever to be broadcast on the Sci-Fi Channel. In 2003, Children of Dune won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Visual Effects, and was nominated for three additional Emmys.
This is my favorite of the Dune miniseries so far, I saw this miniseries years ago, and I even bought it on DVD.
The Dune (2021) movie has not come out yet, if we are lucky, then it will become the best film / TV adaptation of something from the Dune franchise yet.
