The Philippines Could Have Been Luke Skywalker's Home

Star Wars Philippines Manila

I was searching the net on where Star Wars: A New Hope was first shown in the Philippines. One of the results led me to a post on TIME history website entitled 5 Surprising Star Wars Facts from 1977 and it mentioned that if George Lucas had no skin issues, the shooting location could have been in one of the jungles in the Philippines. Maybe Palawan, Bohol and Mindanao could be potential spots.

Check out the whole story here: 5 Surprising Star Wars Facts, Straight From 1977

If this plan pushed through then I believe many factors in the film will change. They are as follows:

1. Lars Homestead - Luke's home
2. Landspeeder
3. Sandtroopers and Dewbacks
4. Sand People
5. Mos Eisley
6. Droids
7. Character wardrobes
8. Jawas and its Sandcrawler

Can you think of other factors that would change if Luke's home was in the jungle?
