In The North African Desert, People Are Living In The Abandoned ‘Phantom Menace’ Set

In The North African Desert, People Are Living In The Abandoned 'Phantom Menace' Set

It’s Friday, so you know what that means… random, fascinating shit :)

Like this… I actually figured there was some post-production protocol that would have seen these sets taken apart and removed after shooting was complete. Yes/no?

The short story goes… George Lucas shot parts of 4 Star Wars movies in southern Tunisia (really, the Sahara desert), and many of the sets that were built for Tatooine, home to Luke and Anakin Skywalker, are still standing today; but not only that – people are actually living in them now.

The website RocketNews24.com got a first-hand look at the sandy makeshift *city* that was once a planet called Tatooine, and you can read their full report HERE.

The video below is a visual accompaniment to their written report:

Eery. Creepy. Half expected to see a platoon of storm troopers to come charging over the hill of those dunes.
