About This Quiz

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.
