T ataouine and the surrounding ksour strongly inspired George Lucas for his films.
Even the name of the city, Tataouine served as inspiration for the name of the desert planet of Star Wars, the planet Tatooin.

and very little used for the trilogy of the 2000s.
The filming was spread over different places in the south

The Ksar Medenine and Ksar Ouled Soltane authentic decorations
for Star Wars. The Ksar Medenine is located in the city, and as
the Ksar Hadada, it served as a backdrop for the slave quarters
from Mos Espa.
Two scenes were filmed there: Arrival at Anakin
in the storm and the departure of Anakin with Qui-Gon and his farewells
to Shmi. Ksar Ouled Soltane, this fortified Berber village was transformed by Georges Lucas into the slave quarter of Tatooin.
This ksar is one of the best preserved in the country and still remains
little touristy. Ksar Hadada, this ksar also served as a setting
for the slave district.
