Star Wars Tunisia – Vignette

Star Wars Tunisia



When George Lucas finished filming Star Wars: Episode 1 in Tunisia, he decided to leave behind and in tact the new sets and several that had also been used in the original Star Wars. Now the sets have been renovated and there is a new hope that the locations will breath new life into a sector that was decimated after the country became known as the birth place of the ‘Arab Spring.’  Thanks to a new interactive media player from VERSE, you can explore the Star Wars Tunisia sets in an exciting non-linear experience.  The photography was also featured on Al Jazeera America
