Save The Lars Homestead

You saw it in 'Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope' as the home of Luke Skywalker. Later it is featured in 'Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones' when Anakin travels to Tatooine to find his mother. Lastly it returns in 'Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith' when Obi-Wan Kenobi delivers the baby Luke to Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen. Despite appearances, the Lars Homestead is actually a pivotal place in the grand scheme of things in that galaxy far, far away...

But the real life iconic movie location in the desert of Tunisia suffered badly from the harsch climate since it was rebuilt for the Prequels in 2002. If no action was taken, it was destined to disappear forever. We, the fans, could not let that happen.

We came up with a foolish, idealistic, plan...
