Millions of people are familiar with the view of a remote location in the Sahara desert, and some might not even be aware of it. For in Tunisia lie the remains of the planet Tatooine, the birthplace of Anakin Skywalker.
This set from the Star Wars franchise has been left intact at the request of the government of Tunisia. The location, once bustling with the excitement and fast pace of a film production crew and cast, is now abandoned and is disappearing at a rapid rate due to sand dunes swallowing the set whole. If nothing is done to stop the encroaching dunes, the days of this site being seen by fans from all over are numbered. But as of now, people still have a chance to visit the arrangement of 20 structures, located near the city of Tozeur.
This is one of the many examples of movie sets that sit abandoned. Learn about 21 other such sites here.
