Rumor: Tatooine to be Re-Created in Morocco for Episode VII

By: Dominic Jones

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the Star Wars Episode VII crew will be re-creating the landscape of the planet Tatooine in Morocco.  According to THR,

"Paparazzi, prepare to storm the desert! A source says Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams and Disney are planning to build out an extensive re-creation of Tatooine, the desolate home planet of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, in a Morocco-like environment (the original was built in Tunisia)."

This lines up with a rumor from last week that filming would be taking place in Morocco starting May 14th.  If true, the set builders will likely be heading down to Morocco soon.  No word on what part of Tatooine we might be returning, be it Mos Eisley, Mos Espa, the Lars homestead, or somewhere new.  

As always this is just a rumored until confirmed (or denied) by Lucasfilm or Disney.
