A Disturbance In The Force: ISIS Takes Tatouine

Star Wars has left a lasting impression on all of us fans in our lifetime. It taught us that that... Well, for one, your dad can be a complete ass at times, and that you should never give up thanks to Yoda’s most famous quote: “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” We at CairoScene have some bad news to share with you regarding the famous Tunisian village of Tataouine, where many scenes were filmed. Anakin Skywalker's home has been taken over by a different kind of Sith; ISIS seems to be ruining a lot of things these days, now they have one more to add to the list. Yes, you can probably guess what is going to be said next: the militant group have reportedly taken over the piece of Hollywood history.

With people to this day still visiting the city to get a nostalgic feeling of the dun colored cliffs and what seems like a never ending desert, it seems that’s going to stop for some time as officials are warning people to not even go close for fear of violence.
