Help save the Lars Homestead
by Doc on Mar.02, 2011, under Movies
Always dreamed of traveling to Tatooine and taking in the sites, like Mos Eisley, Toshi Station, and of course the place that Luke Skywalker grew up, the Lars Homestead? Well, you can (turmoil in Tunisia notwithstanding). However, some of the locations have fallen into disrepair, including the homestead exterior, and a group would like to fix that. They estimate they need about $10,000 to fix up the exterior, and they are almost 79% of the way there. They have some great photos as well so you can see the various locations, not just of Tatooine, but the Cairo of Raiders Of The Lost Ark and others.
What of the Lars interior, you ask? It’s still there, and in decent condition – it just happens to be about 150 miles away from the exterior, and is actively used as a hotel – one without power, apparently…
