Luke Skywalker's home saved...

Uncle Owen
Remember Luke Skywalker? You know "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....",". Well the word has come to me that his boyhood home has been restored.  It was actually  the home of his uncle, Owen Lars. Owen was the stepbrother of Anakin Skywalker. Anakin later turned out to be bit anti-social.

 Sadly the home was burned by storm troopers but recently some people calling themselves "Save Lars" have renovated the home (well just the entrance)just  because they felt like it.  Apparently the building is located in Tunisia, and had fallen into disrepair...

To learn more about this fascinating project visit the SAVE LARS website -

CNN features this article about Tatoonie.

Here are two photos from the site showing BEFORE


Now if they  would only do something about the missing sun!
