What Brings You Out This Far?

One of the cooler pieces of Star Wars-related swag to be found at Celebration Europe was a poster depicting the actual Mos Espa filming site from Episode I that reads “In a land not so far away…” and “Come and Feel the Force: Tunisia”.

Yup, a travel poster promoting tourism to Star Wars fans, with a breathtaking sunset image of Tatooine to boot. This one’s getting a frame.

Anyway, there are actually tours dedicated to Star Wars fans offered by at least two travel agencies — Tunisia First and Wigmore Holidays — which appear to hit several of the Star Wars shooting sites, such as Mos Espa (Ong Jmel), Anakin’s Slave quarters from Episode I (Tataouine), and the Lars Homestead interior (Matmata).

Be warned that Dewbacks will cost you extra.

    Cool, they should set up the Mos Eisley cantina and build all of Mos Eisley and Mos Espa. and they should create a Galactic Historic Site there that is the whole area of Tatooine talked about in books, comics, and movies.

    There’s an even better site that has footage and a guidebook that does ALL the locations : http://www.tatooine.tk! Enjoy.
