General information


"The Jundland Wastes are not to be traveled lightly."
Obi-Wan Kenobi, to Luke Skywalker

The Jundland Wastes were a dry, hot, and rocky region that was located on the desert world of Tatooine.

This remote area largely consisted of a number of canyons that wound their way around a number of large mesas and was situated near the Dune Sea. The nomadic Tusken Raiders and the Jundland Waste womp rat inhabited the area and in the native parlance, "Jundland" meant "No Man's Land". Several layers of rocks within the Wastes were tilted indicating graben formations. They also contained magnetic deposits which obscured sensors.

It would become somewhat famous as the place where Anakin Skywalker slaughtered an entire tribe of Sand People, and decades later the place where Luke Skywalker would first meet Obi-Wan Kenobi after being attacked by Tusken Raiders.

Behind the scenes

The real world location for the Jundland Wastes is Sidi Bouhlel in Tunisia; the resulting film stock was edited together with pick up shots from Death Valley in California.
