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.
