Tatooine is a desert planet in the Star Wars universe. Pronounced /tætu'in/ or Tah doo Een in Jawaese it is the first planet in the binary Tatoo star system and part of the Arkanis sector in the Outer Rim Territories. An impoverished population of the planet gathers moisture and engages in equipment retailing and scrap dealing. The criminal dregs of the universe collect there.
Tatooine's place in galactic events was the home of Anakin Skywalker. There Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn recognized Anakin's potential to become a Jedi Knight and where he introduced him to Obi-Wan Kenobi, his future master and mentor. Tatooine would also be the home of Anakin's son, Luke, where he lived until his early adulthood.
