Tataouine and the surrounding ksour greatly inspired George Lucas in his films.

Even the name of the city of Tataouine served as inspiration for the name of the Star Wars desert planet, Planet Tatooine.

​Tataouine was not used as a filming location for the first trilogy and was used very little for the 2000s trilogy.

The shooting of the films was distributed to different locations in southern Tunisia.

Around Tozeur, around Tataouine and even on the island of Djerba.

The Ksar Medenine is located in the city and, like the Ksar Hadada, served as the backdrop for the site’s slave quarters.

Two scenes were filmed there: arriving at Anakin’s house in the storm and Anakin’s departure with Qui-Gon and his farewell to Shmi.

Hollywood does not make its decisions haphazardly, and when it is sure of its product, it never skimps on resources and ideas.
