The beloved sci-fi comedy Futurama is not any stranger to Frank Herbert’s Dune, that includes nods to stillsuits and area worms. However with its newly launched eleventh season, Futurama takes its Dune tributes to an entire new degree.
In an unique clip from the upcoming episode “Parasites Regained” (a religious sequel to Season 3’s “Parasites Misplaced,” maybe?), we see Fry, Leela, Zoidberg, and Bender struggling to courageous a mysterious desert panorama. There, they encounter a fearsome sandworm that appears like an oranger, fuzzier model of the show-stealing sandworms of Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. We additionally get Futurama‘s model of the highly effective spice melange, a psychedelic drug that turns Leela’s eyes orange as an alternative of Dune‘s basic blue-within-blue.
However this being Futurama, there is a ridiculous twist.
Seems, Fry and pals aren’t navigating the sands of a hostile alien planet. As a substitute, they’re in Nibbler’s litter field, having shrunk themselves down to determine why he is sick.
It is in all probability not the perfect thought to be inhaling all that litter field sand, however hey, something for a candy, candy Dune parody.
Futurama is now streaming on Hulu, with new episodes weekly on Mondays.
