In the Footsteps of Star Wars: Tataouine and the Ksour
George Lucas was heavily inspired by Tataouine and the surrounding ksour for his Star Wars films. The city itself even gave its name to the desert planet of the saga: Tatooine.

It is interesting to note that Tataouine was not used as a filming location for the first trilogy and was little used for the 2000s trilogy. The films were shot in various locations in southern Tunisia, particularly around Tozeur (which is the subject of a 4-day circuit), around Tataouine, and even on the island of Djerba in Ajim and Sidi Jmour.

The ksour of Médenine and Ouled Soltane offer authentic settings for the Star Wars universe. The Ksar Medenine, located in town, has, like the Ksar Hadada, served as a backdrop for the slave quarters of Mos Espa.

Two notable scenes were filmed there: the arrival at Anakin Skywalker's house during the storm and the departure of Anakin with Qui-Gon, during his farewell to Shmi.


The Ksar Ouled Soltane, this fortified Berber village, was transformed by Georges Lucas into a slave quarter of Tatooine. It is one of the best preserved in the country and is still little visited by tourists.

The Ksar Hadada also served as the setting for the slave quarters. This is where the scene was filmed where Qui-Gon Jinn contacts Obi-Wan to ask him to analyze the level of midichlorians in the blood taken from Anakin.
 

It is also here that the scene was shot where Shmi talks about his son, admitting that he has no father. These immersive locations are an integral part of the Star Wars universe and offer an authentic dive into the saga.
