Oung Jmel in Nefta, Tunisia, is better known by many as an outcrop of Tatooine called Mos Espa. The above image was taken on location in preparation for a parade organized by the local tourist board as part of "Star Wars day" celebrations over the weekend. May 4th has been adopted by fans as a day to celebrate the movie franchise, but this year was of particular significance, as just days earlier the cast for Episode VII was confirmed to include a number of actors from the first three movies, and a recent crowdfunding campaign has been launched to save the location from being swallowed by the sands.

The Big Picture is a series of short features where the image takes center stage.
