The Dune Quiz - How Much Do You Remember?
by Michael Poteet

The movie "Dune" was based on the widely popular 1965 novel of the same name taking place on a desert planet as noblemen fought for land grabs and protection of their territory to control the "spice trade." Can you remember the name of the planet? While the movie was released in 1984, the planning stages began shortly after the cult following of the novel exploded a few years after the novel's release in 1971.  

This quiz will test your knowledge more than the harsh desert will test your body as we pick apart Dune, only for you to reassemble in in-depth and curious questions about the world of spice. From breeding programs to physical features that identify a Mentat, you will have to dig into your knowledge of this '84 film.

Do you remember what the water of life is? Or, can you recall what Dr. Yueh implants in Leto? Who are the Fedaykin and Sardaukar? 

As Duke Leto says to Paul, “Without ______, something sleeps inside us and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.” Can you fill in the blank? It is now time for you to emerge from your sleep and take this quiz to prove your worth on the planet of _____. What was the planet's name again?

Take this quiz and have a fun blast from the past!
