Unnecessary Feminist, Anti-Messiah Retcon

In the actual story of Dune: Chani (played by Zendaya Coleman) is a "ride-or-die" character that stands by and supports Paul Atreides no matter what decision he makes. In the movie they made an explicit choice to change the story and the character to be against him choosing the path of the Messiah. Rather than support, she pushes and influences. This coincides with a blatant anti-messiah/anti-Christ philosophy that is the cornerstone requirement of leftist/progressivist/collectivist/WOKE ideology ("there is no such thing as exceptionalism").

This was not a required change to the story, meaning it was purposeful in order to change a fundamental point of the story that conflicted with their ideology.

Is the novel the standard? If so, it missed some important points.

Part one was reasonably well done with the blatant and unnecessary substitution of Dr. Kynes. After all, the original story has women controlling the political and social structures through the Bene Gesserit order. Also, the Fremen women are just as vicious fighters as their men. in the book. Part Two has a more troubling change. Chani isn't the devoted supporter of Paul that the novel portrayed. The novel has Chani gladly accepting her role as Paul's consort while he's married, in name only, to the Emperor's daughter. This movie has Paul intentionally leaving her behind to fulfill his role as Kwisatz Haderach and Chani growing more bitter. The movie ends with the implication of some major conflict between Paul and Chani. The movie also left out the characters of Paul and Chani's son as well as Jessica's daughter. That changed things. I'm not impressed.
