Save the Lars Homestead

If you have not heard of the Save the Lars Homestead project, you are either not a Star Wars fan or you have been living underground for the last few years… Just kidding!

The Lars Homestead is the fictional home of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars Saga. The actual structure is sitting in the Tunisian desert, near Nefta. The original dome is long gone (Star Wars was shot there in 1976), but for the Prequels, they rebuilt the homestead in the exact same spot at the turn of the 21st century.

That building had suffered badly from the climate and in 2012, six fans from around the world, led by Mark Dermul, took it upon themselves to restore it to its full movie glory. They got the budget together thanks to the gracious donations of fans from around the world.

You can read all about this project, that garnered the so-called Saviours worldwide recognition and Jedi Master status, on their website or read about it in the book!.
