Before C.G.I. and green screen, if you wanted that certain look, you had to go out there and find it. The planet Tatooine, from Star Wars: A New Hope, was shot in Chott el Djerid located Tunisia, Africa.
Many times, when a movie was done shooting on location, instead of tearing down the set, they left it there. Photographer Rä di Martino spent a month locating these three locations that were very near and dear to Luke Skywalker. I hope for her sake, she stocked up on blue milk before setting out on this hero’s quest.
