Mercedes GLA Takes a Journey to a Galaxy Far, Far Away

Hollywood

"If there's a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet that it's farthest from." - Luke Skywalker

The Tunisian desert, upon first glance, is nothing more than a dry and vast wasteland. Still, this barren place is quite beautiful despite its rough conditions and sand storms. It also happened to be the locale filmmaker George Lucas chose as the setting for Luke Skywalker’s fictional home planet, Tatooine, in "Star Wars." Since the original film premiered in 1977, fans have taken pilgrimages to the location, where the production team left several iconic set pieces behind.

And now Mercedes-Benz has taken a journey there as well, only without a land speeder. Instead, the new GLA was chosen to trek across the Tunisian desert to this historic film site. No Sand People or Jawas interfered with the photo shoot.
