"Go to Jockey's Ridge and have an epic Star Wars light saber battle."
So, we did it!
At one point, Amanda and Caleb were hiding in the loblolly pines. I yelled down the dune to them "You know we have woods at home, right?" Amanda yelled back "Yeah, but we are going to jump Brandon when he comes back and roll down the hill with him!"
I have been asked if Star Wars: A New Hope was partially filmed on Jockey's Ridge. No. Read here.
To learn where other Star Wars movies were filmed, search the title with the word "location."
