In 1977 Star Wars shooting locations included Death Valley. Most of the desert scenes were filmed in Tunisia, but some were right here in California. May the 4th has become the officially unofficial Star Wars holiday and in Death Valley this year you can celebrate in style.
The Oasis resort in Death Valley is hosting a May The 4th Be With You package inviting fans to explore these picturesque locations throughout Death Valley National Park, including, Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, Artisan Pallet and Twenty Mule Team Canyon – all just a quick 20- to 40-minute drive from the resort.
Employees at the resort can point out the specific shooting locations, so true fans can stand where R2 and C-3PO stood.
