Tunisia and Star Wars After 35 Years

This is a few weeks old, but worth pointing to if you haven't seen it: "35 Years Since Star Wars Premiered and the Force is Still Strong in Tunisia."  Many of the desert scenes in the first film and various scenes in more recent prequels were filmed in southern Tunisia, and the Tunisians are capitalizing on it.

But 35 years? I feel very old.
