Tataouine and the surrounding ksours have strongly inspired George Lucas for his films. Even, the name of the city,
Tataouine served as inspiration for the name of the desert planet of Star Wars, the Tatouine planet.
Tataouine did not serve as a filming location for the first trilogy and very little used for the trilogy of the 2000s. The shooting of the films was spread over different places in southern Tunisia. Around Tozeur, around Tataouine and even on Djerba Island.
Ksar Medenine and Ksar Ouled Soltan authentic decors for Star Wars
Ksar Medenine is located in the city, and like Ksar Hedada, it served as a backdrop for the slave quarters of Mos Espa. Two scenes were shot there: The arrival at Anakin in the storm and the departure of Anakin with Qui-Gon and his farewell to Shmi.
Ksar Ouled Soltane
This fortified Berber village was transformed by Georges Lucas into a slave district of Tatooine.
This ksar is one of the best preserved in the country and still not very touristy.
This ksar also served as a setting for the slave district, it is here that was filmed the scene where Qui-Gon Jinn contacts Obi-Wan to ask him to analyze the rate of midchlorians in the blood collected from Anakin , as well as the scene where Shmi talks about his son admitting he has no father.
