Done done Dune (Off-Topic)

I read that part of the Villeneuve's shift was inspired by Herbert's feeling that people had misread the first book, and that's why he made Paul problematic sooner than later.

Exactly. Paul is the protagonist, but he's not a hero. I don't think the 1st book made that as clear as the 2nd. Villeneuve is using Chani to make that more clear sooner. I think it was a good change, so that the theme transfers to part 3 better than the shift that happens between books. It's also where the 1984 Dune movie totally whiffed.
