Star Wars Fans Fix Up Luke Skywalker's Home

samzenpus posted about 2 years ago | from the extreme-makeover-star-wars-edition dept.

Star Wars Prequels 90

An anonymous reader writes "How far would a Star Wars fan go to preserve a relic from the iconic film series? One devoted fan traveled to Tunisia to rescue Luke Skywalker's boyhood home, also known as The Lars Homestead, as seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. On a trip to Tunisia in 2010, Belgian traveler Mark Dermul came upon the modest dome-shaped hut that George Lucas built in the mid-1970s to serve as Luke Skywalker's home. The structure was falling apart when Dermul found it, so he hatched a scheme to restore it. After two years and a lot of cement and plaster, Luke's house is looking better than ever."

No Script is your friend. I was able to get there and view pics with no scripts enabled.

Anyway, it's a shame that the whole franchise hasn't made any money in all of its 6 movies,
various spin-off products, cartoons, music, and what-not or they could've maintained this
historic set themselves (hollywood accounting).

I actually like Ghostery better (and of course ABP).

I can never seem to configure NoScript to my liking; I'm either always having to manually allow things after realizing something is broken (sometimes takes some troubleshooting) or the settings are so relaxed as to be nearly worthless.

Better? (1)

Anonymous Coward | about 2 years ago | (#40655439)

Luke's house is looking better than ever.

Am I the only one who thinks that it looked better in the "before" photos? The new white plaster makes the contrast with the surrounding landscape so dramatic that the dome looks out-of-place.

Re:Better? (1)

Maybe. However, it's in the desert. It'll look beaten up soon enough. Creaky Old West towns were new at *some* point.

Plus, the "used future" aesthetic probably doesn't include visible wood support structures for a supposedly fully adobe building...

Re:Better? (4, Interesting)

Z00L00K (682162) | about 2 years ago | (#40655679)

This is an example of a movie that did have an impact for the general public. So there's no wonder that there are people that takes interest in the history of the sets.

The white makes sense since it reflects heat, and it will over time be worn down and get colored by the sand. The building itself doesn't look out of place in the desert but is actually of a design that you would expect there.

Add to this that this will be a bonus tourist trap for Tunisia.

And I don't think that George Lucas will make much fuzz about that restoration since it will end up creating a lot of badwill.

"Slashdot: providing anti-social weirdos a soapbox, since 1997!"

Since when it is "anti-social" to kill your masters who are your deliberate and malicious enemies?

Laws are for the rich. If you decide you have nothing to lose, why not take some of your enemies with you instead of being crushed by the legal system they own?

It's the ultimate way of saying "NO!", and he who doesn't fear punishment cannot be enslaved. Our masters don't fear us. They only fear brute violence, nothing else. As long as we are cozy enough not to inflict it upon them, they win.

I'm comfortable enough that I don't feel any need to act. Someone in a different situation might say "enough" and open fire. I'll not call that choice "anti-social". My choice not to act is much more selfish.

Re:calling it now (2)

SciBoy (192068) | about 2 years ago | (#40661177)

Actually, the definition of "Anti-social" is to do by direct action or indirect action damage to society. The rich ruling the world is how society works right now, so killing them is indeed anti-social behaviour. But in the same way, if your actions cause a major upheaval of the social structure the definition of what is anti-social may change until killing the rich is no longer deemed anti-social.

The french did that in 1790.

If I have been hit with a multimillion dollar fine as they did with Jamie Thomas, then what do I have to lose? I'm already a wage slave for the rest of my life, where every dollar I earn goes to paying-off that fine.

So as long as I *already* have a life sentence, I might as well go kill the RIAA CEO. What are they going to do? Give me *another* life sentence? I'm already beyond their ability to touch me. (It's kinda like that movie D.O.A. where the guy was already poisoned, already sentenced to death, so he could murder the men who poisoned him without restriction.)

The more interesting part was the desert-sensible underground portion. From what I can see the two parts weren't anywhere near each other, just spliced together on film. From the igloo you could only see the berm around the atrium.

The rest of the house was actually the Hotel Sidi Driss...

I visited this site in the late 70's as part of a camel ride into the desert. I was only a child, but don't remember seeing the dome part at all. The below ground part was recognisable from the movie - and I remember the guide explaining that the white paint was not a traditional feature - it was added for the movie but the people living there liked it and left it like that afterwards.

He lost his hand fighting Vader in Empire, then right after that Vader told him he was his father. He then discovers Leia was his sister in Jedi.

Most of that must have been spent on the airplane ticket and transport. That structure isn't even a real desert structure, its constructed out of cheap wood (which is not used in the desert as there are no trees), and plaster....it's not a 'real' house or building, its a SET PIECE. Wouldn't it have been more useful to rebuild it from scratch from cement blocks and then open it as a B&B? Or perhaps set up a live-web cam showing the sunset to mimic the scene from the movie. This could have provided a few jobs for local Tunisians, who have suffered great economic hardship due to the revolution. Just another useless hipster stunt.

Not sure what is more "hipster", a pointless stunt to restore a long-forgotten (even to hardcore fans) movie prop, or the idea of Tunisians thriving on a series that was forgotten by even the director himself 10 years ago.

Uhm... Duh. Movie sets aren't made to last. Most of the time they aren't made to look good up close either. They aren't made to code, and they aren't intended to be lived in. They are made of cheap wood and plaster, or whatever material are quickest, cheapest, and adequate for the planned shot. Sets are usually torn down the day after shooting on the set is finished.

If this guy had torn it all down and built it out of stone or cement, then the original set would be gone. His goal was to restore it. Using cheap wood and plaster was entirely appropriate, because he was doing a restoration. Now matching the colors to what was seen in the film would have been nice. Oh well.

Mythology and Stories are the lens through which we perceive reality. Of course it is those who are afraid of reality who recoil from something like this like a Gollum from the light.

Grishnakh (216268) | about 2 years ago | (#40657579)

Lucas never was right in the head, but he did get worse over the years. The only reason the first three movies were any good is because 1) his wife (now ex-wife, since he dumped her after those movies) cleaned up the dialog and scripts, particularly in the first movie, and 2) in the latter two movies, he had other people help with writing and direction. The second movie was the best precisely because he didn't direct it or write it, and the third wasn't bad because he didn't direct it and only helped write it (Kasdan is credited first with the screenplay on IMDB). Heck, if his ex-wife didn't clean up his crappy scriptwriting on the first movie, Star Wars would probably have been forgotten and never spawned any sequels; she's probably the one we really have to thank, and she probably got cut out of all his riches.

Surprised? It came straight from the linked bad blog. Here's the link to the Save Lars site. [savelars.com] Mark Durmul is a impromptu guide that lead tourists to Tunisian movie locations. In 2010 some fans were surprised by the set's condition and joked about returning to restore it. The rest is in the blog (and very interesting because it contains more Star Wars and Raiders Of The Lost Ark set locations). And at the risk of being a dick, this set was rebuilt in 2002 for the prequels so it isn't known if it appeared in the original Star Wars movie (never episode IV, thank you very much).
