Iconic Star Wars set is located in Tunisia

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.
