Skywalking Through Neverland #156: Tatooine Trek – The Imperial Sand Dunes

by Skywalking Through Neverland

Imagine a trip to the Imperial Sand Dunes – home of Jabba’s Sail Barge in Return Of The Jedi. Then sitting under the stars and watching the film with hundreds of Star Wars fans under a starry sky…

Last week we headed to the Imperial Sand Dunes in Buttercup Valley, CA for their now-annual “Discover the Desert Star Wars Event.” We recap the day with Jawa James ( / ClubJade) and Margaret Mays. There’s also a great interview with the three organizers of the event: Kris Haugh (501st, Rebel Legion, Mando Mercs), Carla Teeters (Imperial Valley Film Commission / United Desert Gateway), Michelle Puckett (Bureau of Land Management). They tell us about what it takes to put this on and give us a sneak peek to what they have planned next year.
