The film's sandworms — depicted as colossal and formidable creatures capable of reaching lengths of up to 400 meters on Arrakis — have become one of the most heatedly debated topics, with some Chinese netizens jokingly describing Paul summoning the creature beneath the sand as akin to "hailing an Uber".

Director Guo also recalls that he had such an impression when watching the latest Dune movie, describing sandworms as resembling a high-speed train when they are summoned using a hammer-like device that generates rhythmic vibrations to attract their attention.

Perhaps appealing to local fans, Villeneuve revealed he plans to depict how characters riding the sandworms dismount from these colossal "vehicles" in the next installment of the trilogy.

He has also written a post in both English and Chinese on Douban, enthusiastically explaining to Chinese audiences that "if Part One was the appetizer, then Dune: Part Two is the main course", and expressing his eagerness to hear their thoughts.
