But, Tunisian officials and Star Wars fans are worried the sets will be lost forever as the desert slowly takes over the remaining buildings.
The government has set up an Indigogo page to raise the $45,000 needed for protecting the sets and promoting the site to future generations of Star Wars fans.
To make matters worse, they might also have some competition coming their way. Rumor has it a new Tatooine set is being built in Abu Dhabi for Star Wars: Episode 7.
