Star Wars Fans Rebuild Iconic Desert Set

One of the most memorable scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy was the first time we saw Luke Skywalker as he came walking out of that white igloo looking structure on his home planet of Tatooine. That particular set used in the film was built in the Tunisian desert and has sat their rotting away the last several decades.

A group of Star Wars fans led by a man named Terry Cooper decided to restore that abandoned set to its original glory. Over six days the people rebuilt the rotting wood structure of that white igloo, re-plastered it, and reinstalled all the custom touches Lucas and his crew made for the film. The finished product looks just as it did in the science fiction classic.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
