Zendaya has confirmed that her role in Dune will be "very, very small".
The Spider-Man actress takes on the part of Chani in the upcoming epic, a member of the Fremen and Paul Atreides' (Timothee Chalamet) love interest.
However, it looks like we will not see a huge amount of her character in the movie, Zendaya explaining that she only filmed for four days.
"My part is very, very small in this movie and that's why I'm so excited to see it, to see what everyone's been up to," she told Empire.
"[Director Denis Villeneuve and I] had a little discussion about who Chani is and the strength she possesses. She's a fighter, that's what her people are.
"I only really had a few days with her, so I kind of scratched the surface but it was so much fun figuring her out. What does she walk like, what does she talk like? This is her planet, so how does she navigate this world? It was so fun."
The star also spoke about working with Villeneuve on set, recalling: "He's so kind and attentive to all of his actors. I was only there for four days and I did not want to leave!
"Denis understands what he wants from us but he's also very collaborative, allowing me to have my take on the character as well. I don't want to jinx anything but I can't wait to explore her more."
Let's just hope we see more of her in the sequel.
Dune debuted its epic first trailer earlier this week, which also had appearances from the impressive cast, including Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Javier Bardem, Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård and Charlotte Rampling.
Dune is scheduled for release in cinemas on December 18, 2020.
