It was recently announced that Star Wars: Episode VII is already shooting and that casting for the film is almost complete. Thanks to THR, we've now learned that J.J. Abrams and Disney are planning an "extensive re-creation of the desolate home of Luke and Anakin Skywalker in a Morocco-like environment." That home is the planet Tatooine.
It's no surprise that Abrams will be taking at least part of the story pack to Tatooine. I'm sure there are going to be a lot of nostalgic elements featured in the film. It's going to be kind of crazy to revisit this universe and get caught up with some of our favorite characters that were introduced to us so long ago.
